very nice soundtrack

Hey that's a cool game. Just one minor issue I found, pressing z while the caps was on didn't enter the command.

It's pretty good!

The controls feels real nice

nicely done !

Oh man, this is cute as! When I finished the first level... that was such a great moment haha! Well done!
...and thanks for using my tileset!!

I originally was just using the free set to prototype but I ended up liking it so much I had to grab a couple of your paid sets. Really helped. Your sprite work is great. 

Thanks heaps! Glad you like them :)
