Hey! I posted my game here.  Check it if you like retro platformers!

I'm not fond of platformers, retro or otherwise, but this one has style. Love the music, and the visuals -- like a ZX Spectrum with a few more shades and no color clash. Balance looks surprisingly good, too, at least in the first few screens. Good work!

i started playing this game expecting a generic boring and simple platformer, but i was pleasantly surprised. The art style is unique, and very nostalgic. it reminds me of a Metroid game. The controls are easy to understand, but tough to master. The sprites look great. The only thing i didn't really like is the enemy placement. Many times an enemy was directly above your line of fire so he was really hard to shoot. Other times there were a bunch of enemies in one spot, so because of the slow rate of fire, you had to jump in front of them, shoot one, jump up on a different platform, and repeat this several times making it pretty frustrating. Overall, great work!
