I completed the game with a trick, I'm not sure if it's an intentional feature.

I noticed you made it with game maker studio...
Anyway, I like the Metroid style graphics and play.
It is high quality.

Very well done. The graphics are amazing the music is great and the mechanics are amazing. I can see this turning into a fully fledged game on steam. I as well am working in Game Maker Studio still learning so far from any thing this advanced. This was super fun to play and I'll be keeping an eye out for updates.

Thanks DanJamesv! Programmed in Game Maker Studio, exported with the HTML5 module. Did some of the pixel art in GIMP 2 (image editor), then animated in Game Maker's image editor (great for animation). I did the music on a very old version of Garage Band... not sure which version, had a digital keyboard hooked up to an old macbook. Made the sound effects with bfxr.net .
