I really liked your game, It actually looks like a real NES title and the difficult setting is pretty good.
But there is something that bothers me and that's the time limit, it's probably something that you implemented to add stress to the player but you should really consider adding 10 seconds more at leasts. There were times when I died by time limit just before reaching the goal.
Waifu aside, this seems like a real game that could've been made during the era you're going for and included on a 1000 game compilation cartridge. This can be a compliment if you want it to be. In that capacity it already stands on its own, although an extra enemy or some equivalent to the Pacman fruit wouldn't go amiss. I like the hunter's AI.
It's very bare right now, but this reminds me a lot of various old Commodore 64 and ZX Specturm games, mainly Castle Wolfenstien. With more levels and maybe an Evil Otto to spice things up, this could be a cool callback to that era of simple games.
