Stage 6 and onwards seem to be really laggy for me for some reason, to the point where I can't complete Stage 8 because I can't kill the enemies.

Hmm can't seem to get the second stage's rhythm right

It can help to keep an eye on the health and damage indicators, they dance in time with the music :)

fun :)
