Very short game, and the gameplay was horribly bad.

Very fun, my GF loved the dog and cuteness. Gameplay was an interesting take. Very nicely done!


The first time I fought the ******, most of my vision was blocked by a tree, you might want to either consider the sightlines or give them like an escape to the other side of the map move (all the old SNES bosses had something like that). 

Thanks for playing! That snes idea is interesting! That part of the game should be in the open, so I'll have to adjust it.

This was a fun game and the low-res graphics were great (reminds me of the graphics back when I learned to program on the Apple II series). Amazing job!
