|...oh. No wonder I thought this was so unfairly hard before... I was playing some kind of hard mode hack where all the levels have a much stricter time limit, and drink/clock drops are way less frequent... I tried starting again on the normal version of this game, and it's MUCH easier. I got back up to stage 4 again in like no time... and then I beat stage 4 in one try.|
Stage 5 is on the beach... this one's really annoying, so many fish jumping at you out of nowhere... but it's so generous with the drink fillups and time that I still had no trouble getting to the boss. This boss took me a few tries too... Knocking the bouncing barrels he throws back at him... doing this while you're "chubby" and can only kick is kinda hard...
The 6th, final stage, is just a really short, easy ice sliding stage with like barely any enemies, and then at the end you go into a plane and fight the last boss, with vertical shmup gameplay. This too was really easy. I had more trouble with stage 5 than this stage. Although, the first time I beat it, I got the bad ending from being too fat... beat it a 2nd time and got the good ending. EZ
