@radHABiT , thanks for the feedback :)

Nicely done! This was a really nice retro platformer, really reminded me of the old DOS/Atari ones and I absolutely love that! Good graphics and well developed, I like that you can ride those waterfalls back up, gives it a more open feel and not as constrained to only moving in one direction as far as stage completion goes (if that makes any sense, sorry!) Overall, GREAT JOB!

@wonderingmonster  Thanks, this is easily the best and most complete game I've made :) Also thanks for the music writing advice I will give that a try :)

Nice job! It feels like a complete game. There was a lot of dissonance in the music. If you're in a rush and you're writing it yourself, consider using a pentatonic scale. It's easier to improvise in those and have it sound good.

@merlin4, Yeah my composition skill is my weakest skill for sure.  I have gotten better though. it is at least tolerable.(hopefully). I will continue to work on it, Thank you for the feedback :D

@ Rhornbeck , Sorry I didn't think about putting the control scheme in the pause menu or built a better tutorial. I am glad you remembered though :)

Needs some better tunes

The music is nice and it was nice to have a battle suit. I just wish the suit told me the controls again because I made it to Mr. Smiley and didn't know how to kill him. I finally remembered the key to press to fire my space cannon. The arrow after his death was helpful so thank you. Great job!
