Yes, emulate it for a play, it's fun. A conversion board is rather inexpensive (cheaper if you do it yourself), but yeah, a real PCB is probably over $800 now.
Amazing game but damn...is it fucking hard
yeah it does some WEIRD stuff with the checkpoints. Never consistentI enjoyed the video awbacon! I agree it's a pretty hard game. What makes it tough for casual play is that they only institute checkpoints in the final stage which is a tough one. You really need to get a grip on the shadow powerup mechanics and play enough to know the enemy layouts to stand a chance.
