Cool game but feels a little hard. Maybe adding stormtrooper aim would make it easier for a noob like me.


Im trying to speed run the game, i love this game so much each run is different in my eyes! if only those pesky guards didn't target you until your in their line of site



hopefully i can get sub 1 ^-^


turns out i just had to do the simple thing and not die sub 1 : 58 seconds

That's very impressive!
