That was a good game. I tend to like these screen-based platformers. There was a glitch though, because all the left-facing cannons were firing the wrong way. Also, I found myself missing checkpoint flags a few times.

Thanks! We'll look into that cannon bug. It's strange since it wasn't happening on our last build... typical for bugs. Thanks for pointing that out. Glad you liked it!
