Whew. It took me 13 years, but I finally beat it!!
After Tom mentioned it in one of the recent 'Showcased Flash without Flash' posts I came back and at last got it done! So here's an old fashioned review.
This was a fun one to return to, mechanics are easy to get into and it's neat how they lend to the mix of action and puzzle. Enemies made it a lot harder than I expected though, some had to be avoided with reaaally thight jumps and there's little invincibility frames after a hit.
Music is great! the main theme is one of the things that kept going on the last levels.
Level variety was fun, especially with the frequent boss fights. level 14 was the hardest but I liked how it had a fun progression as you go up.
Quite satisfying to finally beat this one, really makes you appreciate the capabilities of Flash.
Also, that joke at the end, really takes me back to an earlier internet.
13 years late, but good stuff!
(makes me wonder if an Alkie Kong 3 was ever considered)
