Good graphics, appropriate palette for a game of this demeanour. It's nice to see games that take on historical events. I wish this game had a bit more of a progression curve to it, though. It just seems to throw you out onto the field (well, literally in this case :P) and it's all too confusing as to what you are supposed to do, especially since there are points when the enemies just spam bullets everywhere. I think maybe a tutorial is needed in the game itself.
