Thanks for the feedback, we do appreciate it.
The instructions are a bit long aren't they? We've tried to stick to the original 1984 game, so borrowed the instructions from there. Back in the day, we never read them either, although wish we had as it would have made the game a lot easier! Incorporating them into the game is a good idea, and something we may look to do in future releases - maybe a 'tutorial' mode...? The challenge (and fun) with Pico-8 are the constraints, so there's usually something that has be left out!
The blue mummy is a deviation from the original, and yes - it's a bit quick! There are a couple of ways to 'lose' him, but it is difficult to hide from him for long...
Thanks again, from the weareroad team!
