I got mine yesterday, but haven't had time to open it up yet and play it.

My box got dinged up a bit in the mail. Pretty sure my package was not cardstock reinforced. I'm not bothered by it at all, just sharing my experience.

I hope I have time to get into the game this weekend. The demo was really fun!

I shipped all the US and Canadian white carts before I started wrapping them in card stock. I switched to wrapping them when I sent out European and international ones last week. The grey ones are going out this week and will all be reinforced. I feel bad that some of them have arrived damaged, but I'm happy that everyone seems to be enjoying the game.

Just wanted to let everyone know that as of today, all Kickstarter rewards have been shipped out! Website preorders will be shipped tomorrow, and all new orders will be shipped within 24 hours as long as the game is in stock. Thanks to everyone here who helped make this happen! It was really a dream come true.

I have this game. Pretty fun! I like puzzle games and there's some action/plateforming qualities to it. There's many fun homebrews out there and they are all at variable quality. I consider this to be one in the upper tier even thoughts it simplicity. There's a password system so it's a plus! Right now I'm at... like Level 25-26 and there's 64 if I remember well.

I agree, this game is solid. I'm very happy to own it. It is in my NES right now with the Goofy Foot Controller for an added challenge!

Man the levels start to get pretty challenging in the 40s requiring thought and in the 50s it is pretty hardcore, which is a good thing. I am stuck on level 54 I believe (the one with all those passageways along with enemies flying around). Just can't nail it yet!

I'm glad that everyone seems to be enjoying it. The response has definitely been overwhelmingly positive, which makes me really happy.

I've been making some good progress on the sequel over the past couple of weeks. I'll be using a mapper instead of NROM so I have a lot more room for varied graphics and new gameplay elements. I've already added in ladders, springboards, and hidden doors. I'm hoping to improve on the boss battles too as I felt they were a bit lacking in the first game. Also thinking about getting rid of lives in favor of a death counter and speeding up the transition between levels, maybe treating a block of levels as rooms within a larger stage. It's all pretty early so far, so who knows what I'll come up with.

Depending on the quality and fun factor for eskimo bob i would without any doubt buy the sequel.
