great job! i love the music and sound effects too.. are those all original?  I think i recognized the boss defeat music from contra but it's been so long

some constructive criticism:

it seems the character stops very easily.. maybe give him a bit of inertia when he hits the ground? in general the game character physics look like they improved a lot between videos so i'm sure you're still perfecting it. also, in some parts it's not noticeable but in other parts the lack of scrolling kind of sticks out (especially in the overland parts).  but i'm sure adding scrolling is a whole new ball of wax ;)

I find the feature fall and double jump sweet, the physics seem tight. This game has a TON of potential.

This makes me happy in places that usually aren't because of video games. :happy:

SIVAK!
with the hottness
I think you commented on one of my videos from youtube.
Didn't know you were on this forum, should have guessed
Question: how do you devote time to working on the game?
Are you at a point where its just fun time or do you still have to work hard to get stuff done?
I don't know if the second video is from IWbtG, but I would say to lose those elements because the game is too cool for that.
keep it up!

Yes.  I'm here.  Can't you tell how overly active I am from that large post count?   8)

Sorry, but I'm not sure what you're talking about.  What 'elements' ?  Or are you watching the correct video?  The game is inspired from IWBTG, yes, but I'm not doing the whole ridiculous traps and such.  Just platforming action.

In other news:  I've expanded some more on the game.  I got the oh so fun disappearing blocks in the game now.  Absolutely NO inspiration from Mega Man there!   >:D

Actually, those look fine. I hate those damn things in Megaman. Every game has at least one room where there are a ton of those fuckers at arbitrary locations, and the only way to get through is to memorize the locations and timing of each one. And even then, God forbid you should jump at the wrong time...

Ah, well, in each room there is generally only a short sequence.  I made it so I could, in theory, have up to 15 blocks appear in one room, but most rooms only have 4-6.  There is one with 8, but the 8 sort of build a bridge for you.

This is the second area of the game, so I didn't get too evil with these.  Hehe.  You still have to have timing to pass these, but I think it's fair.

Could be quite tough if you make one or more of those spike-blocks move too.  Like if the 5th from the left on the bottom row of spikes moved up and down :)

Holy crap, that's sexy. Are you sure this is homebrew and not a commercial app? :thumbsup:

Well, remember that this is the second area you'll visit in the game, so I don't want it to be too evil.  In the final area, however...   ::)

Are you going to add a harder "2nd quest"? :)

btw, I like your background tiles.  Are you drawing those yourself?

Covering a racist statement with a "not racist" disclaimer does not, in fact, make the statement any less racist.  I know this was just a bad joke and you were not being malicious or anything, but let's try to keep the humor in here above a 6th grade level.   :P

This may not be the fairest question to ask of such a project, but... in what time frame might there be a ROM?  Gimme Gimme Gimme, I WAAAAANT IT!!!

Consider me curious. I know the ending will be a surprise, obviously... I'm just hoping it's not like a bunch of NES games that simply have a Congratulations screen...

I didn't want to make a new post, but I uploaded an NSF of some tunes from the game if anyone is interested.  This link will take you to the Famitracker boards and in the post you can get the file.  I can't link straight to the file from an outside site.
