While not a great game, this was still good. I think the best part about it was probably how well it was paced. The first parts were actually pretty hard. It's always helps to have a game where you don't immediately die when falling somewhere. The graphics could probably be better, though. The music is nice as well.
Guess I'm not the first person to unearth this. It just seems like this was something destined to win an award of some kind (positive, I mean). I thought the enemies were pretty well detailed. It does get annoying when you have to calculate how you're going to land. I don't see what the point of that beanstalk is.
