first of all the trailer looks very good. but after i download and run the game i saw that its not that good.
when the first enemy come i have to walk backwards, as i try to jump over the enemy it hits me, so there is only one way to handle the enemies... walking backwards.
the next point is the "dead screen", you should write:"press space" because at the first time i die i was waiting becasue i dont know that i have to press anything.
i also always get back to the title screen after i die, which is wrong because at 99% i want to try it again.
i wish i cloud play against some bosses, but the enemies are way to hard. the level of difficulty kills the fun.
resume: the game have majer problems with balance.
i hope you will edit your game, it could become a good one :D
the "problem" starts with the sketch. the proportions are wrong and the hair is just to extreme. the colors you choose dont fit well together.the upper body looks good. but the leather shoes and leder gloves dont fit together with the futuristic outfit. i dont feel like i should redesgin the character. i even dont change the colors mich. what i did is to change the proportions and put the shadowas on the right place. if you want know how to sprite right use google to find some tutorials. for the beginning the chararacters and the sprites are very good. make some more and you wil lsee it will look better with every pixel you make^^ good luck
