I love Ikaruga. The Style, the graphics, the game play, the difficulty. It's an amazing game in general, and one of the best curtain shooters ever made (not to mention one of the only ones where you aren't playing a young girl with magical powers, oddly enough...) I pick it up on occasion when I want a challenge... aaaaand end up dying by lvl 3. Ah well. If I play it enough I'll eventually unlock infinite continues. Doubt you'll ever see my name on the high score board, though.
