I love the intro screen notebook, the tv with legs (and other characters), and the wild pen-drawn backgrounds in the course selection area! Great style. I'm not as crazy about the style and graphics in the actual gladius-style shooting part. Very interesting and impressive, though. Unfortunately, I don't have a PC :(

I will have Mac version very soon, in 1.9. There were just a few additional bugs to be resolved first.

It's shaping up pretty well! I have a few niggles:

1. I opted for mouse controls but I found moving the character in the platforming parts was a bit tricky. I would have preferred a combination of keys and mouse, or perhaps click to move. It might take some getting used to but it just felt like I was often moving when I didn't want to be and fell off ledges a few times as a result.

2. The foreground objects in the shoot-em-up parts (asteroids, etc.) were quite distracting and made it difficult to keep track of what I was meant to be shooting.

3. There seemed to be some arbitrary restrictions on the resolutions I could choose. There was no option for my monitor's resolution: 1440x900 / 16:10.

The game looks amazing and the world and ambience are really cool. Keep up the good work!
