The main problem with this is that you are practically sold without a second one Big goose. It is true that we can ask for them in exchange for money, but the imbalance is so great between having them and not having That generates frustration and a lack of help not being able to do anything in the face of so many enemies.

Assistants come in here, but sadly they are unbalanced if not second player at the controls to control them. Individual, offensive helpers are practically useless except for one: the one that provides you with weapons.
