YMMV / Eschatos

  • Scrappy Mechanic:
    • Bomb items in Advanced mode. In Original, there's almost no bad time to pick them up, but in Advanced, getting a bomb hurts your multiplier and reduces your shot power, meaning that unless you absolutely need to use them, bombs should be avoided at all costs and treated like enemy attacks.
    • In Original mode, the multiplier penalty for letting enemies escape is much harsher than in Advanced, meaning that a single death can wipe that multiplier you worked all stage for back down to x1.
