A fireball heads towards you
A tank is about to run over you
He looks like a huge football player
Look out for the laser barrier
Destroy the heart to win the game
A bit of demo gameplay...
Destroy those square things -sometimes they drop items that will power-up your weapon
What's that, in the middle?
This boss is too much for me...
Next area: you can't proceed until you've cleared the room of all its deadly weapons
Room cleared, you can proceed
next one is tougher: those green suckers throw logs at me, I'd better duck in the corner...
This crazy boss fires several fireballs at me
You can ride those grey things
Wow, now THAT'S a weapon!
Oh-oh, this boss looks like he means it...
