untitled platform maze game

Early version. Classic gameplay, collect coins, keys open the door and various activities, e.g. platforms, etc. Opponents can be stunned and then eliminated by jumping on them.

1) When I took the key and reached the block with the key - it didn't disappear.
2) Platforms with diamonds in most cases are inaccessible, because you need to clearly calculate the place of deactivation of the enemy and jump on it. You need to try very hard to make both factors coincide, because the characters fly off automatically after landing on the skull.
3) Some enemies are taken from other games (skull from Robo Warrior, mouse from Little Samson).
4) Why is the game in Polish? You know English, what prevents you from writing a game in an international language?

Just based on pics, your games all look the same. Maybe try a different direction for a change?

Because another key opens that door.
2) Platforms with diamonds in most cases are inaccessible
Because they are bonus items with difficult access.
3) Some enemies are taken from other games (skull from Robo Warrior, mouse from Little Samson).
I couldn't make an interesting mouse, so the one from Lickle with a slight modification.
A sprite of skulls is rather an inspiration, not a copy:

4) Why is the game in Polish? You know English, what prevents you from writing a game in an international language?
Because the game is not finished. It will change later.

Graphics and sound are good, but gameplay is a little slow. Like if the enemies move faster than you then it feels a little unfair.

DEMO version update. Still a lot of work (especially map design), many things need to be added and changed.

Not bad. However, there are still many dishonest places. Yes, and the number of lives would not hurt to increase to 10, and add a continues. :)
P. S.: I still wait for "Jet Set Willy" port.

The "continue" option probably doesn't make sense, because the game state is saved in SRAM (all items collected, doors open, killed enemies etc.), so just use Load Game. Lives will be increased after collecting a certain amount of diamonds. At the moment I am designing a world map, I have already pre-designed (128 screens). It's made by one person (code, gfx, msx, design), so it takes everything a lot of time. Once completed, it will of course be available for free.
