It seems balanced for different skill levels. The game is really fun to play on the 3rd difficulty, as the power ups and bad guys keep you on your toes.
There is also a couple of easter eggs, The ABC screen is a neat find -- hidden away on the menu screen. Plus different backgrounds in the setting section!
