This is really nice. Good job. I love the title screens, and the ambient sound effects are great. Fun game.

This is really sharp, I did the smoothness of the action.

The mechanics make sense but the controls still feel iffy to me. The long-hold versus tap of X is rough. Not sure what the solve is given the character has to jump too...unless like double-tap was a jump. Maybe if long Z handles rotation, and double tap Z is jump. Then X can be always shoot.

The high pitch sound of my canon rotating had me muting very quickly though; might try to find something more subtle since it will be happening a lot. Maybe a lower "mump" sound that only happens every few ticks rather than constant.

I dig it. This is the Commando action I'm looking for. And that dude with the hammer is awesome. I totally yelled out loud when he smashed me.

This is lovely. Quite challenging to play but the level of polish makes me want to get better :)
