Simple, Fun, Classic and A lot of Fun! This game feels like it came out  during the NES's heyday. Great Game and nice work!

Thank you! That was the exact vibe I was going for!

que tiene de nuevo la version 2.0,gracias

There are some bugfixes and the main character has a new sprite.
You can use the old sprite by holding the B button during the title screen.

I love the game! What happens if you keep going? Does it loop until it crashes or is a final stage set?

Never mind. I found out 7-5 loops back to 7-1.

And the time limit goes down with every world 7 loop, until clearing stages isn't humanly possible.

Interesting. Good to know!

My little tribute to this game...

Thank you for the video!
You are a true Scholar and a Gentleman.
