I loved the graphical style!  Others are right that the controls are tricky to figure out.  I got stuck at the end of the first level/screen.  I like the jumping and feel like this could grow into a cool game!

Tip for other players who are stuck on the title screen you are probably selecting "new game" and hitting the z key?  For me that quit the game every time.  If its quitting  for you too then try selecting  the quit button instead and then hit the z key.    Optionally if you don't change from "new game" to "quit" (dont touch the left right controls) it will be on the "new game" and you can just press z.  Rationale:  I think the UI on that screen is trying to imply that the darker option is the one that is selected not the lighter.


I get the style you're going for, but the placement of objects were a bit erratic, same with pixel sizes, it looks really disjointed as a whole. Cutscene at the beginning was sweet though.

The controls needed some touching up, It's okay not telling the player what they are if that's the sort of game you're going for but they have to be conventional. I didn't know how to start the game until I read a previous comment here.


Really enjoyed the opening cutscene you made + the color scheme you chose. Really has that classic Game Boy feel to it.


I can't play the game and can't find the control instructions. Can you help me please i'd really like to play it.


I'm sorry. I should had add how to play. You use the asdw keys to move and L to shoot.


The problem is that I can't even start the game. I'm stuck on the title screen ater the intro. No matter what I press the game doesn't start. The arrow keys switch between Start and Quit and the T or Z key (not sure which, just pressed everything from row to row) just closes the game.


Oh. the title screen starts on new game so you can just press z to go to the level select.
