Anything you want to say to players before they play?
This gaming console is essentially a VM, that executes provided ROM image. And the image could be any png. But the programming of such console could be a challenging task.

OK, I finally uploaded a video of my playthrough, it can be found here:

I think there needed to be a bit more explanation, I was overall just kinda confused.  I think I like the idea of the game itself, seems like it could be really neat, but it just needs a little more explanation!

Great job!

I guess you can move the sprite around and play around with the paint program, but not sure what else there is to do? Looks like pico 8 though which is cool!

I like being able to edit the sprites but besides that i don`t really know what to do. Maybe a Tutuorial that showed you what the different windows do would be helpful?

Sorry, but I haven't got a clue what is happening in this game. It is way too hard to get into.

I get that the image is supposed to somehow compile into a program or something? But apart from changing the sprites for the aliens, I couldn't see how what I did changed a thing. 

I read the messages and bought some ROM chips, but I did not know how to go further, or whether it is even possible.

I tried to publish and it said "expecting the number of chip 5 to burn". What the heck does that mean?

This is just way too tricky to try to figure out on my own, with way too little information provided to the player. Is that supposed to be the message?

This is a fascinating idea. Unfortunately, I'm struggling to figure out how to do much except read my messages and recolor the sprites on the screen.
