    Played through it last night on normal mode and what great fun this game is. End of Stage 3 is pretty tricky but overall it's quite easy.

    The old Konami cheat is in there too. (I was using classic controller for this) Pause the game and press "up up down down left right left right b then a". You will hear a little jingle and a voice say "go get em!" Now un-pause the game and you will have 4x option orbs around you. Enemies seem to get harder though once you use the cheat.

    9/10!
