Brilliant game, Actually put off homework to play this.

EDIT: Help for anyone, on the level the first cacodemons appear, there's some secret items above if you can make the jumps. It's crazy difficult however.

I'm a sucker for that old DOS aesthetic and you nailed it; this feels like something on the old hunk of junk back in the day. Simple but highly replayable, so I'll be coming back.

alevgor responds:
