Love 8 bit games
What I like the most in your game was the two main characters, the alien looks bad ass!
My complain is you have to output the numbers too fast, my keyboard does not have numberpad, so I have to wait until more numbers are repeated... but no big deal, I persist and beat the game...
The lazer wall hacking has certainly got mixed views! Some find it a nice challenge, others hate it. I know a couple of guys who BOMBed around a whole map section just to avoid it! However.. if you fail the wall, it adds 1 second to your allowed time for your next go. And it keeps doing that. So if you do suck, you'll eventually succeed because the timer just gets longer and longer :)
The old days of glory
Great game, I played it through and I must say, hats off to you guys.
I'm sad you weren't born earlier to have played this game on my actual GB :D
Thanks for this time warp :)
For the gameboy interface alone

Flirting with perfection
This game was almost soooo good, and then it kind of fell down.
The main problem was the freaking controls. Never have I seen a control system so obtuse. You can only move on a grid very, very slowly, while all your enemies were faster and more maneuverable. Hitting things with the gun was just a pain in the ass. The spaceship sections sucked--your ship is the most slippery thing I have every tried to fly. It's like it was skating on ice, not flying through space.
The game was incredibly fun, the story was good for what it was, and while the collecting normally would have gotten boring, here it was too short to be annoying. Everything was there, just somewhat difficult to get to. I never wandered around wondering where to go--everything was just linear enough to be guiding without being restrictive. The bombs kind of broke the game, though--you could just jump into acid and they would all respawn, and give you an alternate route anywhere!!!
The secret room was findable without being obvious, and the arrows were somehow subtle enough to guide me perfectly.
Oh, and TEH BOMBZ CAN BLOWS UP SPACE!!!!!!! That earned you a star by itself.
