Controls worked graphics rocked but you needed more options such as an ability to turn off or on the music at will


I liked it. Only a few additions I can think of, a toggle switch for the music so I can turn only the music off and listen to my new Frank Zappa album. Although, after a few minutes the music stopped playing all together, my apologies of course if the feature was available and I missed it. Another thing would be to make the character flash and a sound occur when Nicky is taking damage. Some times I could not tell until I looked up at the bar draining. I thought this game was well done, nice job.

Never played the original,

But it's fun, I imagine it's very true to the original, and it's an all around excellent game. You gotta make money, and this is quite a project, so I definitely would encourage people not to vote down for providing only a part of the game, after all, it's still something for free. However, I do knock off a point for the deceptive 'play level 2' button. If you're gonna redirect me, please let me know first, eh?

Cool game

Cool game, fun to play but a quite difficult !
Definitely SNES style !

Wow! awesome remake!

Realy gae me that good feeling from the nineties sitting infont of my amiga 500+ playing. Well done!

Suggestions: make the gfx a bit clearer it was a bit washed out. also the music stopped after a time

And make a remake of "Magic pockets" by the bitmap brothers while you are at it :)
