I didn't see this post (edited posts don't show up as unread so I missed it). Not too sure yet - there won't be any respawning though. I'll have to think about the best way of implementing it.
Anyway, I came back here to give people a quick update on what's going on. Predseda has very kindly stepped in to do some graphics work and he's come up with some nice, simple graphics that very much fit in with the game I think. He's done animated graphics for both players as well as some platforms and pickups... even a nice title screen. I've already managed to implement the animation for player one so that looks pretty good now.
I will once again post an updated version, probably on Sunday evening like last week, for you all to have a play around with - rest assured it's starting to look a lot better if nothing else
