Wow, this is one of my favorite carts so far! The bouncing mechanic was a little hard to understand at first, but it ended up being a really satisfying and unique way of attacking. I'm a fan of the NES-esque graphics, too. A lot of Pico-8 carts end up looking more 16-bit but this really does a good job of capturing the feel of the black-box games on NES.
The boss fights are great, too! I was surprised by there being three of them, and that last one took me quite a few tries. Anyway, great work!

Really cool game!

The ball form physic and mechanics are great, and I really like the variety in platforms and enemies.
I didn't finish the game yet (maybe I'll comment more when I get to it :)), but so far I felt like there was rarely any need for the normal form, so maybe there could have been more stuff requiring that. Anyway, really good stuff!

Played again today and finished it! (In one sitting, though save feature is nice to have:))
Enjoyed it a lot, thanks!
I realized the issue with the second level I had on the first play was that I hadn't yet learned how to bounce higher in ball mode, so I thought you had to do a precise jump up in normal mode to get up to the platform in the beginning, if you get what I mean?
But seriously nice, besides what I already said I liked, 3 different bosses and everything, awesome!
