1 month to go!
So, I'm nearing completion of a personal milestone here with the release of beta testing. Anyone interested please send an e-mail to email@example.com with subject "beta testing" and I'll send a beta version of the hack for testing as soon as it's ready (should be within 24 hours from this posting).
I'm looking for any kind of feedback really. Please note that there are known problems I don't know how to fix:
- controls get stuck sometimes with diagonals
- annoying main theme song
- when pitfall harry shoots the animation is buggy
All of these are problems present in the original game.
Also, I have made a blog/site that I plan to use for my next game, but so far I've only updated it with info for this hack. http://nesrocks.com

Something I've made for fun:
