I got an “ASCII Trance Vibrator Pack” in the post today, for use with this game, so thought I’d best try it out.
And it really rumbles, and rumbles hard. If you hold it, it can actually get quite painful. Not that you can hold it, since you’re holding the joypad. So I rested it next to my knee. In fact, just resting it on the other end of the sofa is enough, as it vibrates the whole thing.
As far as the game went, I completed Phase 3, which I hadn’t previously been able to do. I also managed to get to the boss on Phase 4, and even got him down to one notch of energy, before he obliterated me making me lose all my “levels” one after another in the space of ten seconds. Gah.
My hands hurt from the vibrations now.
