Best Retro Pixel Game Ever!

I'd rather not say these words, but this is the greatest retro pixel inspired shooting game I have ever played. This is like the 1978 game, Space Invaders and the 1986 game, Darius, all rolled into one, all thanks to the TAITO cooperation in Japan.

Thank you for this wonderful game.
