Issues unresolved[edit]

Help section typographical error[1][edit]

The Help section of the game, specifically page 5, has a bad typographical error, it may be possible to fix it unofficially by editing the in-game resources, which no one has probably done yet

Issues resolved[edit]

Energy Storm is not dropping[2][edit]

Energy Storm, a certain power-up shown in the help section doesn't seem to appear anywhere within the game, while this may be the case, the power-up simply has a really low drop rate for some reason, it will start appearing in Sector 8, 8-5 specifically, here is a video showing what it does.

    While typographical issues can be ignored, this one shouldn't as the typographical error should indeed be fixed due to showing profanity

    I've played and finished the game 2 times, and I've only witnessed this power-up years later by brute forcing the game.
