About
--------

An action-shooter platformer game using the same mechanics as Megaman X. Choose any of the six stages, and defeat the boss at the end to obtain a new ability. Hidden upgrades are scattered throughout the stages.

This game was originally made for the GitHub Game-Off 2013. Now it's a full-blown game complete with 9 stages and 10 bosses.

Finish the game in Iron Maiden mode to obtain the extended ending!

Default Controls
-----------------------

Arrow Keys - Navigate menu, movement.
Z - Jump.
X - Fire, hold to charge.
C - Slide.
S - Change to previous power.
D - Change to next power.
Esc - Pause.

Note: You can rebind the keys in the options menu. It is also possible to play the game with a gamepad.

Tips
------

* Slide - Down + Jump.

* Super Jump - while performing a slide, press jump while holding the left/right key respectively. You must do this before the sliding ends.

* Wall Jump - Press the movement key against a wall to slide down slowly. Then press the Jump button to perform a wall jump.

* You can use the bouncing star as a mini platform/boost by jumping on top of it. Fire it mid-air to use it as a glider.

* Each boss is weak against a specific ability, experiment to find out!

Update - 1.3.3
----------
* Added Xbox360 gamepad bindings to default settings, now you can just plug in a 360 pad and play the game right away.

(NOTE: Make sure to have your gamepad ready before starting the game. If your gamepad is not detected, refresh. Also, you can custom bind the buttons!)

* Finally fixed that Happy Star wonkiness, now works more reliably.
* Tweaked some more levels.

Update - 1.3.2
----------
* Achievement registry fix. If you don't get an achievement, restart the game (refresh browser) and load a saved game.
* Tweaked some levels.
* Added armor upgrade in time trials.
* Fixed getting hit by stray projectile upon victory.

Update - 1.3.1
----------
* Small delay when firing again after a charged blast.
* Change some stuff for the input to make it more responsive.

Update - 1.3.0
----------
* Changed Star-Gazer full charge to traditional blaster.
* Added Star-Bounce weapon, changed the way it works. Fire it mid-air to surf. Fire it on ground for bounce.
* Fixed Final Boss Trial to properly enter the victory screen.
* Removed upgrade items during trial.
* Increased invulnerability (1 -> 2 sec) when hit.

Update - 1.2.0
----------
* Added time trial mode.

Update - 1.1.0
----------
* Removed limited lives and replaced life pickup with invulnerability (10-seconds). Also makes you slightly move faster. Iron Maiden mode still uses the lives system.
* Added some extra checkpoints around certain stages.
* Reduced certain enemies' hitpoints and invulnerability delay.
* Skip indicator during intro.

I enjoy this game and keep coming back to it even though I frustratingly can't seem to beat a single boss. Nice gameplay otherwise though. Echoing darksnip3r's sentiments.

Also: Poor Molly, even if she does kill me every time. I think there's something wrong with that girl.
Hope one of the end game cut scenes has her getting the professional help she needs.

Thanks! I'm happy you like the game!

If you're getting stuck beating a boss, try to get upgrades from some of the levels. Most of the upgrades are obtainable even without any of the weapons you acquire from the bosses.

Having enough upgrades should make some of the bosses easier, especially if you get the armor.

My only problems are pretty much that A: I am terrible at this and need a wuss mode, B: I once died due to accidentally finding out that S changes ability (which at the time due to my inability to beat bosses so far was only Happy Star) and gleefully flew right into Tabitha's face the one time I was about to beat her (I like to experiment with games rather than run in knowing everything, but that made me cry.), and C: I find using Happy star to be a bit too difficult, it seems as a glider I stay on half a second before going "Later, bitch!" and have trouble jumping on it when I want to use it as a platform, so making that better would be nice. I may not be able to complete the game, currently, but it is amazing what I get so far. Keep up the good work!

I was originally going to give this a 2.5 star rating, but decided to hold off since you seemed responsive to criticism. I am very glad I did. The recent changes made this a much more enjoyable game, and seemed to remove a lot of the frustrations I had playing it before. You obviously put a lot of thought and love into this game, and I look forward to seeing what you make next

Thanks! I'm actually glad to see some of these comments. First attempt at making a full-fledged action platformer may have been a little too much :P But in the end, I now have some nice foundations to work with.
