Not bad but a few complaints. Overall the visuals are okay but....it feels like pixels scattered around too much rather than following a pattern. The HP bar looks nice though, but having at the bottom feels a bit...strange. It's a bit too big mainly, keeps my eyes looking away from the character. I like how the first boss looked though. But the yellow pipes feel stolen from Mario.

I like the mechanics of this game though, good programming, but I feel this game's potential is hardly seen here, could use a lot more than what it's offering, but not bad for a start. The music is alright.

They do look pretty similar to Mario pipes/ although the play mechanic was more of a tribute to the enemy pipes in NES metroid and were drawn by hand. I thought it was OK since the pixel day idea is to tribute to older games :) Thanks for playing. Of course it could be better if we spent more than 8 days on it.

Just staying the auto jump is really annoying, As some platform are already tight and falling off takes a bit off your health bar. Besides that great game!

Yeah the auto-hop was included to help save the player from falling off edges - since the little hop can be used as a double jump- but it might be a bit sensitive. Sorry if it makes things harder for you... Did you get to the end? :)

This seems like it'd be an alright game if I could jump with W. Seriously, that's messing me up pretty badly

I have updated the game to include your suggestion! W should have been included from the beginning! Thank you for your invaluable input.
