This is actually a really good game in that everything works, has dual control inputs that work well together, and it's challenging yet fun.

Good game! There are some problems, though:

Even if you die at the very end, you still start from the beggining, which gets frustrating. Maybe add checkpoints? or less lengthy rooms. Also, rather than just blowing stuff up, you might want to make the game more centered around the bombs, like what else can you do with them? Just blow stuff up. Yup. Hate to say it, but even blowing stuff up gets old. Make it do new things. Maybe make a sequel or something to expand on this? Also, the music is EXTREMELY repetitive, which is good ususally, but, it doesn't even loop correctly, which always bothers me a TON.

Thanks, thats all for now.

Jellonator00 responds:

There is a tidbit of code in there that gives bombs knockback on yourself, I was going to implement puzzles using this but bombs do enough damage to make hard mode impossible. Also as for the music, blame our composer he's a lazy butt.

Anyways, thanks for the feedback. We may create a sequel in the future, but instead we're going to use C++ instead, due to several issues the game has as it currently stands(e.g. the music).
