anyway. thanks for doing this! it was a fun game. here's to hoping you haven't completely moved on from it :)

i really enjoy this game. thank you. great music too. it really fills me with a sense of adventure. hope to see more stuff by you in the future.

only complaint: somethings off about the spikes. they kill you if you directly above them. this means no hanging off ledges which im fine with. its just hard to figure where the safe zone when your moving quickly.

Can I play it with a controller or is it a keyboard-only?

@Rafael Ventura :

You can play the PC version with a controller. It comes with JoyToKey . The Mac version unfortunately doesn't come with the same program but I believe there is an equivalent somewhere around the net! I'll try to find it and post it on the site soon!

Well just bought the game...
I still love old school games but was hesitant to buy it...
I finally did... And I'm not disappointed...
So thanks...

On a side note, if like me you have an azerty keyboard and don't have/want playing with a gamepad, instead of using glovepie or similar button remaper, you can use
alt+maj (or alt+shift, don't really know how you say it to switch to qwerty keyboard) when done with the game, alt+maj again to switch back to azerty...

Started playing it a while ago and I love it! soome thigns I would sugest are the ability to manually save and start from a manual save, and nerfing the spikes. I glithced into one of the push blocks and had to restart my entire game becaua I could not get out. I do like it though and the soundtrack is pretty sweet.
