The game is complete! I'm hoping to have the download up later today; I'm having some peeps test it first. It's a very simple game - 8 levels, a couple boss throwdowns, and a few scene-levels. Good players will blaze through the game in about 15 minutes; it'll take at least twice as long to 100% the game. Collecting the Secret Star from each level takes time, and there are two extra levels after the castle if you do so!
I'm excited to have another finished project under my belt, no matter how small. This project, despite being very simple and lazy, was a huge first step to me. I'm now back into designing games as a hobby, and I couldn't be happier.
