  • The gravity makes the game WAY to difficult. 

  • Love the scanlines and the graphics, but the jump feels abrupt. Love the "glitches"!

The graphics are really good! It almost looks like an NES game, but the colour palette doesn't quite fit that. I'm not sure whether I like the addition of the mechanic in the original Super Mario Bros where you basically have to hold down the run button the whole time to play the game or not, and the jumping is suuuper heavy and suuuper short. Somehow, it manages to work though, so good job!

Thanks, and, actually, the game uses exclusively the NES color palette, so, excluding the scan lines, it should be exact.

When I read your description "Larry may not be as fast, as strong, or as bug-free as the other, more popular brothers, but he is... available." when I first started playing I was laughing so hard I kept getting killed left and right. I guess I beat the game though, or glitched it out? I ended up in a very weird place. That was a lot of fun!! :)

Hey, thanks.

Yeah, the ending is a little strange, (mostly because I made it in like 20 minutes in an attempt to finish the game in time,) so what you saw probably was the end. Anywho, thanks for the review, and I'm glad you enjoyed the game.

Edit: Just to clarify, the ending screen should have text on it stating that you beat the game, so, you probably didn't miss much, but I guess that's the 'real' ending.
