I made this game a while ago (it was published on itch.io on the 7th of January 2019), but at the time didn't know about uploading carts to this page, and I have finally taken the time to do it.
You can find it in itch.io here.
Use the right arrow key to move right and the left arrow key to move left.
Jump with C or Z.
Enable/disable the timer using X (you can only perform this action while in the titlescreen).
Pretty well-done overall, if a bit visually simplistic. That final fight is definitely tricky but once you figure out how to deal with each phase it's not too hard.
I definitely like the idea of the music changing and progressing as you get further in, but as it stands the gameplay theme still gets very repetitive in each section. It could definitely benefit from being at least twice as long and more varied. (The boss theme works well as-is though!)
I think the game could use a bit more polish to make it more interesting to look at and to improve the game feel (ex. particles and screenshake where appropriate) but it does work as-is. More varied visuals would also make it less confusing to navigate the world because you could make locations feel more distinct.
Oh also: I noticed a possible bug where the flying enemies die instantly upon touching the bottom edge of the screen in the lowermost area.
I enjoyed this game quite a bit!
I must say the game is pretty short and simple though. Visual and gameplay variety is definitely lacking to say the least.
Despite this the game is mostly well designed and can be a nice experience to play through.
It's a fun little linear platformer that isn't bad at all but could definitely use improvement.
