Under rating threshold (show) This is really cool man. I'm certainly becoming a fan of yours. I actually found this because I looked at your profile and saw it. I'm also a huge Mardek fan, that games awesome too. I may only be 17 but I grew up on SNES and still remember and love those games. Keep doin what your doin man, you are doing a great job

Under rating threshold (show) Wow, someone who isn't afraid to make a game hard. The difficulty is excellent, the gameplay is great (old NES and SNES platformers FTW!), and overall, I had lots of fun playing this game. 5/5

Under rating threshold (show) Also, I am really glad to see that the game has attracted a few people who actually do remember the good old games which were actually challenging, which you could play for ages without really getting anywhere because you kept dying, but when you did, it felt like such a satisfying accomplishment... Modern games, with their instant gratification and 'Death is a slap on the wrist' mechanics don't really have this same feeling...

Under rating threshold (show) Pesudo, you're brave posting this somewhere where a lot of people didn't gorw up playing old games. The uneducated bastards need to go out and get an old nintendo. xD Dude, why weren't you getting paid for this earlier in time? If this was the standard for 8 bit games back in the day, things would have been soooooooo much better. Build a time machine. seriously.

Under rating threshold (show) I really hope you don't let people get you down. This game is simply amazing. It's tuning is quite simply perfect. You managed to recreate the best parts of ye olde NES style gaming, without all the old cheapness like unresponsive controls and sloppy handling. It's frankly the best game I've played in ages, and I really hope you finish all 5 episodes. I particularly enjoyed hard mode. 3 health, 3 lives, and instant death spikes really feels just right. This is what videogames should be like.

Under rating threshold (show) Okay, one: IT'S SUPPOSED TO BE A PLATFORMER! Two: Who cares about combat? IT'S A PLATFORMER! 3: The genre has had it's day because people are too bad at gaming now. Early platformers were actually DIFFICULT. Thus, it is not cheap. The only reason most people hate this game is because they can't cope with difficulty.

Under rating threshold (show) Oh, one more thing you should know of, in the 9th room theres a glitch in the spike pits. I got stuck and was jumping around then i glitched through the wall and fell out of the boundaries of the game but didnt register as a death. Just thought you should know but I doubt others have experienced this and its not really a big problem.

Under rating threshold (show) All these ignorants posting underrated comments don't get the point of this game. It's supposed to be challenging. It's supposed to be retro. Also, I found no problem with the controls, as I could customize them to my liking. At any rate, this is a huge throwback to some of my favorite games. While it's no Actraiser 2 in difficulty, it sure does live up to your description. 5/5 and faved.

Under rating threshold (show) I didn't expect to like this (the preview image made me think it was just a rocket-blaster game) but I do. It was pretty hard even on easy level but I suppose I should have expected that, eheh. What kept me around was the brilliant and hilarious dialogue.

Under rating threshold (show) while i agree with pseudo on some points i think modern day games are still difficult. while platformers require you to simply put in a button combination to reach a goal, games these days require actuall skill to play. the most common example is of halo. with the option to turn on the skulls and add even more difficulty, most people are too pussy to actually turn them on aand actually challenge themselves. games these days do have the instant gratification of achievements and what not, but who doesnt like to feel good after beating a game on the hardest difficulty. but, all in all, good game. ;)

Under rating threshold (show) Too many controls? Are you guys idiots? There are 3 fing buttons!! 4 if you count the shift for small jump but anyways. How can just plain 4 buttons be too many? Also just tell me how much buttons a regular game on let's say PS3 game uses. EVERY DAMN BUTTON IT HAS. On the old NES you had 2 buttons, A and B. The SNES probably the best console ever had 4 and you say it's too many? Sheesh people are right when they say that new gamers are bunch of wimps.

Under rating threshold (show) This game wasn't as hard as I expected it to be, a disappointment, but perhaps I'm too masochistic to judge. The game gets points for keeping me busy and wanting to find out what was next, and for that I give it a 4.5/5 (But I'll rate 5 for the ratings to go up)

Under rating threshold (show) Wow this game is amazing..Its challenging yet simple. I especially love the graphics , reminds me of those retro systems. Personally I only had one issue with it, its when you fall into the spikes, In my opinion it would make more sense to be a instant death besides slowly dieing because most of the time a ledge is not there or just to high, but thats just my opinion and again great work I hope to see more of your games.

Under rating threshold (show) As for the rest, it seems to be typical for games of this type to have the hitbox smaller than the character, and I'm sure you'd complain a lot more if the hitbox was as big as the character (it used to be, and it made things like the ghosts bit far more frustrating). Things like this and being unable to slash on ladders (it's not necessary or useful to ever do so anyway, so I didn't bother to code and animate it) are things that you figure out as you play, and surely you would not expect to be guided by the hand and told every little thing as if you were some kind of retard...? Figuring out minor things is part of becoming familiar with the game, not 'fake difficulty'.

Under rating threshold (show) If this game lags for you, either you have a REALLY ancient computer (probably made of stone or something), or there's a browser-related problem, perhaps. Try another browser, but if that doesn't work, then I really am sorry, but it seems that you should take it as a hint that your computer may be in need of replacing. It takes a while to add new features, and I can't add configuration settings for minorities such as people with obsolete hardware, people who are blind, people who have postage-stamp-sized monochrome monitors, etc... o_O

Under rating threshold (show) Really nice game. Shame I can't seem to get it to work without pressed keys seeming to "freeze" in te pressed state or just not responding entirely. I even set memory use to unlimited, reset my coputer and have only this running beyond typical windows operating stuff. Still trudging away at it on Beginner mode but I doubt I'll be abe to play it on the harder dificulties with these problems.
