Awesome game! I LOVE the retro visuals and I think you managed the gameplay mechanics really well, the player's movement feels smooth and the whole game is really fun. I'd have liked the last boss to be a bit harder though!

Did I see a pony around level 4? It looked like a reindeer to me!

PS : In your scoring tips, you have both "Not killing any enemies gives bonus score" and "Killing no enemies gives bonus score", that's a bit redundant.

Yeah, I've always had trouble drawing horses. And it's even harder when you have to make it low resolution and retro. Reindeer's pretty close, though. I'm glad you didn't mistake it for a dragon or a penguin.

I was just trying to make it look like there was more secret ways of getting a good score than there actually is. I guess I got busted...

You can upload your entry to a free file hosting site like http://myfreefilehosting.com. I just did.

It will generate a link you can post back here so others can download it. Also, submit your entry without uploading anything. It will create a post for your game with the descriptions you entered. The staff/moderators will download your game from the free hosting site and put it up on Gamedev for others to download here.
