Thanks for the frontpage! And the Daily 5th Place? Wow! Hooray!

Due to the players' feedback I created the post-jam version of 1985. The most frequently asked features were: a map and a bigger frame. Well... Here you go!

Update 1.1 (05.11.16):
Changlelog:
- increased game resolution from 64x64 to 170x96;
- added minimap;
- adjusted jump strength of tall character;
- few small bug fixes.

This is my entry for the Lowrez Jam 2016 (https://itch.io/jam/lowrezjam2016).

Description
The legend of the video game industry was born back in 1985. What if Shigeru Miyamoto and his team designed Super Mario Bros as a metroidvania type of game? Well... Let's try to imagine in this little tribute to the good old days.

Controls
You can use keyboard and that's fine. But this game also has gamepad support. You should give it a try!

I liked the parody, but the controls are painful. You did fine, considering most people can't code crap, but it needs a big overhaul if a remake were ever to be considered. I'm glad you made the boss easy enough to beat without having to find all 99 coins, if that many exist (I found 89).

Wolod responds:

It's no wonder that this game might seem a bit frustrating cause it was made for a lowrez jam. The original screen size was limited to 64x64 pixels and I just increased it a bit in this postjam version. It's a little bit hard to balance everything including controls and level design if you're operating in a such tiny resolution.
Anyway thanks for playing and for the constructive criticism :)
PS: there are exactly 99 coins. You need to find them all in order to buy both upgrades in the shop.

cool game EVER

Wolod responds:

Thanks a lot!

fun,but it´s a ripoff of mario

(i am joking,don´t take it serious)

Wolod responds:

Shh! I know, don't tell anyone ;)

its just i cant load it:( and play it

Wolod responds:

Oh, I don't know what can be the reason for your issue. I have a downloadable version on itch.io that might work for you. Here is the link https://wolod.itch.io/1985

NverseMpossiblpRadox, but then what happens when you mess with the Space Time Continuum and prevent certain things from existing? Time Travel too has consequences

Wolod responds:

I prefer the theory that says that when you travel in time you just create an alternate timeline so there are no paradoxes in the one you're from.
