so when i finish the giant fly first, i can't proceed to the second level because i didn't grabbed the key? that is not very player friendly game design...
the black and white design is cool, but more details would be good. especially for the fly boss.

it gives you some sort of challenge. plus you can always go back to the level again and get it (you still need to finish the boss) on this game though, you dont need to get the key, you still can enter without it (i didnt program that in yet)

plus, there is a quicker way to enter the first level, on the first house, the one you first start out on, go down the chiminey and you can get in without finding the key. though you lose 5 health.

plus i saved all the images a black and white images, so the antialiasing is gone

i couldn't try it out because 7zip download site gives me a time-out. why the heck don't you use normal zip files??? the difference between 8 and 9 kb is not so big...

7-zip offer's more compression and is free compared to winzip. i guess the website host im using doesnt support 7z. ill get a zip version soon.

You know that 7-zip can create regular ZIP files too, right?
(7-zip is my preferred archive program too, but I usually use regular ZIP format unless there's a significant difference between 7z and zip format, just because many more programs will understand zip format.)

i know. i made a zip version. i updated my website, only problem is i "reached the quota" so i cannot load it on there.

can't post it here because, oddly, the file is 290KB! :o

ill go to Box.net and ill post a link. brb

edit: Its just NOT my day today! box.net is having troubles uploading files for some reason. does anybody who has 7-zip can convert this file to zip? ???

and now i just forgot i deleted the 7z file! and worse my zip disk (used for transporting my files to the internet computer) was flushed accidentally by WINZIP!. not my day! :(

now i need to reload it! ill brb (last time hopefully!)

edit2: YES! i get it. unfortunately, the zip version has no music to save space. its 123KB. plus some maps (most useless) were also deleted. and the Inside tileset is deleted.

can't play, there are 2 error messages. the first says "automation errror", the second " error playing map: display must be open to clear display".
i think it was the zip version you posted yesterday.

That usually means the sounds are missing or unable to play.
