Thus the challenge is not in manipulating the available systems present in within the game but rather in continuing to play the game itself. Or, put a better way, the challenge is in remaining conscious and standing after banging your head into the wall repeatedly and with great force.

I may be a lot more optimized against one enemy type than another, but their basic power level tends to be about the same, and when I lose against an enemy in sector 5 I usually know it's because I didn't exploit sector 4 well enough.
