It only took me 3 tries, but yeah, the same issue. I wondered if it had something to do with whether I had completed all I was supposed to (ie killed all the flies?)

Noticed two bugs: select does weird things to the colors, and on the second level I fell through the broom 6 times, only on the 7th try it managed to pick it up.
Oops! Select turns on cpu debugging, I forgot to take that code out.

Oops again! The broom collision is buggy because it is biased to the left. In level 2 I decided to be fancy and have the player approach it from the right. Luckily this fix is easy, I can move the broom's collision box to the right a bit.

Collecting the broom has nothing to do with how many flies have been killed, just what part of it you're touching. Sorry for the confusion!

Here's a new post-competition build. Lots of small improvements, including better fly AI, some misc bug fixes, and much better art for the end boss.

There's a level select code on the title screen - Down, Up, Right, Down, B, A, Down.

New month, new build! Lots of graphical improvements, thanks to the advice of M-Tee, though I haven't finished everything yet. Some small gameplay changes as well, and lots of behind-the-scenes compression and memory rearrangement to free up space. I'll be adding two more levels now that there's room available, and possibly another music track.

Was thinking of posting the source to github. Would anyone be interested in that?

I think it'd be awesome if you did!

Awesome job!

And releasing the sources is always a good thing to do :)

I saw "DEMO" on the new version's title screen.

Yup, added that so when I show it people, they know it's not done. I'll be removing it for the final build.

Here's what I expect to be the final build:

- Added a level 4
- More graphical upgrades
- Some minor gameplay tweaks
- Many small annoying bugs fixed
- One remaining bug I can't track down, but at least it's not game-breaking (hopefully)
