A Practical Guide to Indie Game Marketing, by Joel Dreskin Marketing is an essential but too frequently overlooked or minimized component of the release plan for indie games. A Practical Guide to Indie Game Marketing provides you with the tools needed to build visibility and sell your indie games.

Please download my just finished game from this homepage . It would be interesting to me,how you judge its difficulty. Are the 20 levels too hard or too easy ?

Here''s a reminder I would like everyone to pay attention to.

If you want people to download your games, please having at
least the following on your webpage:

1. one or two screenshots
2. show the file size

Otherwise I look elsewhere since I don''t want to spend a lot
of time downloading something I haven''t clue how large it is
or what it looks like.

It ran on my computer, but I had problems. The right side of the screen,
a section about 8 pixels wide from the right is flickering really bad.
And I tried to minimized it (alt+tab) and restore it, but only a black
screen came up. Some of those levels are insanely difficult! And why
only have one life per level? Why not 3?

i saw this graphic error on another pc too,strange ....

you don''t need more than one life,you can play one level as
often as you like,the game is saved automatically.

Yep. It flickers on mine, too. Are you going to make a patch, so that it works on the keyboard?

I think if you focus your attention on puzzle-solving rather than
how good you can control your mouse with minute adjustments, the game
would be more enjoyable to play. Trying to navigate through 1-block
wide corridors is much too difficult when you have a dysfunctionally
behaving mouse controller and terrible hand-eye coordination.

i think you are right with the mouse-control. on my pc the control worked ok,but if the mouse is not so good you can have problems,but i never really tried it on other systems.
it''s right,i wanted to get a little action in the levels rather than puzzle-solving,maybe it was done that well. i wanted to complete the game quickly and now some parts aren''t that good yet.

would you all favor a keyboard control ?
