Thank you very much! This was made for RIT's Game Design and Development students (as well as anyone else) as a "blank project" where, if they download the full project from Github, they add their own graphical assets as part of the 2D Animation course. I'm glad that you enjoyed it.

I'm glad to hear that you want to use my music in an NES game! Since your team is building to authentic hardware, I can send you the NSF and FTM files if you need them; just give me an email address to send them. My music uses all five channels of the soundchip, so you might need to make changes to make room for your game's sound effects.
Thank you very much,

Generally speaking, I've had plenty of luck posting my games to game-development subreddits. Users over there are more than happy to suggest features or provide feedback to games; someone was kind enough to make a video about one of my games. Specifically, I recommend posting to https://www.reddit.com/r/playmygame/ and https://www.reddit.com/r/WebGames/ (if your game is playable in-browser). Hopefully, this helps!
I just played your game and got 1035 points, and enjoyed it. I think you've designed a smooth difficulty curve and the visual effects (such as when a player is taking damage) are great at communicating information to the player. Overall, your game feels satisfying to play.
Since you're looking for feedback, I personally feel that the screen shake effect upon switching screens is excessive and a bit disorienting. Furthermore, I think that the HP bars are distanced too far from the player's position; to see my health, my eyes have to constantly jump from the bottom to the top of the screen. It would probably be much easier on the player if those HP bars were somewhere near the bottom of the screen where the player's eyes are. Finally, the green powerups (at least on my monitor) are a bit too hard to see, but I'm not sure if you intended for them to be as transparent as they are as part of the challenge. However, I think that your game is pretty solid if I'm commenting on minor things such as these.
I'll certainly be playing this more often from now on, and I sincerely hope that this game gets more views; thank you for creating this game.

Mr. Alberto and Mr. Dani,
I just finished a couple of levels, and the gamefeel is excellent; great work. However, I noticed that hitting the number buttons (1-9) change various settings such as language and resolution even during gameplay. Is this intentional, or was this intended for debugging purposes when adding the new translations?

If you're in need of authentic NES-style audio for your project, try the music of The Game Creator's Pack, containing nine full-length music pieces in a variety of genres! Also included are five short, multipurpose jingles. With the musical diversity included in this pack, I'm certain that you can find a suitable piece or two for your games and works.
Preview the music included in the pack here: https://soundcloud.com/jonathan-so-988423341/sets/the-game-creators-pack-audio
Download options for the pack include uncompressed WAV format and 320 kbps MP3 files.
I made these assets Creative Commons-Zero because I believe anyone with the imagination for creating games should be able to produce them without worrying about graphic or audio production. If you want to make games, download The Game Creator's Pack here:

Inspired by single-screen arcade games where the objective is to defeat everything onscreen, Go Go Sniper's foundation is its risk-reward, combo-based scoring mechanic. Punch enemies to make them angry, faster, but worth more points; shoot them to reap the rewards. Lining enemies up and firing creates a high-scoring combo, but beware; some enemies might fire back! Scoring high is tough, requiring light-speed reflexes and strategy.
Go Go Sniper contains two modes of play: Tour Mode, where players progress through 21 stages with unique architecture and settings, and, for the high-scorers, Infinite Mode presents a never-ending onslaught of enemies that gradually increases in difficulty. Whether you're a beginner, veteran, or anywhere in between, Go Go Sniper has the perfect challenge for all.
