Am I the only one who finds the game extremely hard ? I can't even pass level 2.

I had issues with the first level till I realized how you were limited how many times to "alter your ego" So really just make sure you time the skulls properly. Figuring that out I was able to get through several levels with no problem, even without using all the alters available. Just plan and time yourself...

Say Shiru, have you ever though about releasing any of your games on hardware in the future? It would be really cool to see a multicart or something your work. I guess the competition cart will have a couple.

Lan Master and Lawn Mower will be on the competition cart. This one - I don't know, there are other authors involved. If there will be demand, I'll think about it.

I don't know why. But on level 3 I fall down from the bridge all the time in NEStopia. I can only run like 3-4 steps then I fall. In FCEUX it works.

Otherwise, great game! I have to finish it!

I successfully beat the game in Nestopia during testing. I also just tested level 3 again, no problems there.

Strange. When I played on my PowerPak and in FCEUX it worked fine, in Nestopia it gets like this:

I thought it could be something with the Retrozone controller I was using, tried switching to keyboard. But that didn't help.

Video looks seriously bugged - bridge parts aren't falls as they supposed to (see these sprites at top of the window?), and they disappear as you step on them, not when you leave a bridge piece. If it never happens on the hardware, report to the Nestopia author about the problem, as I think it is a bad idea to fix software for a certain emulator's quirks.

I personally have no idea how this can happen, if you don't use a cheat code or something (maybe accidentally enabled).

Hehe, yes I had a cheat enabled. Sorry about that... Now it works just fine. Now I have to beat the game. I've come quite far!

The amount of quality NES homebrew is dramatically raising recently :) Thanks for your hard work Shiru (and of course the other two guys too!).

I find most of it is too easy. I completed the game.

However I like the idea of game. And I like that source-codes is available.

Completed in 20-25 minutes. Pretty fun, but it would be nice if there were more levels.

Superb graphics and sound though, nice trick with the BG animations, I never would've thought of that. :D
