A short platformer made for the NESjam over at Gamejolt.

Arrow keys to move
Z to jump
X to shoot once you collected THE POWER

I should mention that SN2083, to me, is less of a game than it is an attempt to create a specific atmosphere. It's short and won't be a challenge for anyone who's played platformers before, but I hope that if nothing else, it takes you back to picking up a rental cartridge one weekend because the box art looked MEGARAD and then you played a weird thing that made no sense but you were completely immersed in being a space person blasting aliens while arguing with your friend if it was a dungeon or a space fortress.

Well that was pretty awesome :). Loved every second!

a solid game, I wish it were longer...

Fairly good, but the controls feature one major pet peeve of mine: If left is left arrow and right is right arrow, then I naturally expect jump to be the up arrow. Having to use the Z key instead feels awkward.

I think you nailed the atmosphere pretty well. The gameplay was, eh, okay. Personally I'd like to see a longer game, maybe a hub level (or password system!), one or two gameplay gimmicks...

The response to SN2083 so far has been overwhelming; I'm definitely looking to take this style + the feedback I'm getting here on NG to create a more fleshed out NES-like game.
