Nice little entry. I love how much detail you worked into so few pixels. I'm curious how your respawn coordinates are determined, because I managed to get re-spawned in the ceiling/walls, twice. At least that's what I think happened. I couldn't see my character, but based on sound effects, he was moving. The way the camera was centered, led me to believe I was in the walls/ceiling. I guess the alternative was the player sprite wasn't being draw for some reason. Other than that, the game felt good.
Thanks for your comment! I just tried to reproduce it and it seems this bug happens when you die without having a save. Its supposed to send you back to the first room but I accidentally referenced the wrong room (the third room) and because there are no respawn coordinates set for that room it puts you at 0,0 by default which is in the ceiling. Oops.
