The map design doesn't follow the original game but rather I designed everything from scratch. Some game mechanics were improved, like the ability to move while jumping, having an inventory, faster gamespeed, etc.

OMG, great effort!! I really like it, even though I'm not skilled (or patient) enough to complete it! I really appreciate your work! The only small thing I could say is about the jumping mechanic, but I'm sure it's part of the challenge, so I'll shut up! XD
Keep it up!!!

I was going to write an angry review 5 minutes into this game, until I figured out, you use the up arrow to use exits. well "w", man I felt stupid, but knowing that, really fun game.

The game is pretty good, I love the art style simulating an old tv, but the gameplay isn't very innovative and it doesn't pull the player in well enough, but don't sweat it its a great job! :)

I liked the game, but I have one note about your chose on not use [ARROWS+ZX]. Some keyboards layouts doesn't have WASD in the shape you are used to. The Arrow keys are always there, in almost every layout possible. It's good to give the players a variety of options, even if you "hate" one of these options. You are using HaxeFlixel, which allows the developer to handle input fairly easy. Please think about ARROW-lovers, they deserve to enjoy your game too.

You are right, I know... I am planning to add re-definable controls at the next updated version.
But still, people can play using ArrowKeys and J-K buttons, or a 360 controller.
