Game feels more forgiving, which is good

Reviewed By: +RyeGuy+ on 11 May 2022

Not sure what more skilled shmup players will think of this redux hack, but it works for me. I love a challenging game, but I have always thought Gaiares was brutal, especially as a kid. The addition of a double shield at the start of each life is a welcomed update. Nice work!
