If you put on the invincibility, players can take down the final boss in maybe 35 minutes. It’s a quick playthrough but altering the cheats or challenging myself and trying to power through it all without cheating could result in hours of play time. For seven bucks, that’s not a bad deal. It’s a classic game that I don’t think many have heard of and one that shoot ‘em up fans will probably want to check out, and with all the features added into this release, it’s a solid package for the purists out there.

‎The truth is that, without being adept at the genre, I can not deny that Gynoug is an entertaining title, which without becoming an exponent of the genre or having super interesting mechanics, presents us with an experience which serves to kill some free time that we have during the day. However, if you never played it and are looking for a title of this genre, which is not only interesting, but also presents us with a great and interesting challenge, I would tell you to look for another lake and get a copy of Ikaruga. On the other hand, if they never entered this genre but would be interested in trying it, I would also say that they get Ikaruga, but not before starting with Gynoug, since this is not as murderous in its difficulty as the game of ships and shields.‎

Gynoug hasn’t quite got that special extra spark that turns a great game into a spectacular one, but even so it’s still a unique and thoroughly enjoyable thirty-year-old shmup capable of standing proudly next to any other sold on the eShop, and yet another affordable retro re-release sitting in that perfect middle ground between modern convenience and hardcore authenticity.

The gameplay is faultless in what it does, but Gynoug doesn't do anything to stand out. If you are nostalgic towards the game or those alike, you'll get much more out of this than someone brand new to Gynoug. Unfortunately, I was the latter.
