Great stuff!

Just out of curiosity, how did you find the difficulty setting? Too hard? Too easy? Just right?

Well I thought it was going to be miles too fast judging by the video on the site, but it was fine, just the same speed as I remember on the Amiga

The Slow setting is hilarious, you can go put the kettle on before your egg leaves your 'duck'

Nicely done though, seriously it's very polished.

HEHE. The slow setting is really in there for kiddies! That said, even my 8 year old niece prefers to play on 'normal' speed.

I think you become accustomed to the face pace of the game, and without thinking, you're reacting and thinking faster, so it demands a little more from the player ...

Please recommend it to your friends though, I have loads of copies left still, and absolutely no clue how to do the marketting and promotion thing! lol.

Advertise on a site like Atariage.com. While not quite on topic, they do seem to buy/sell/support homebrew. I'd guess you could also sell a bunch at any sort of classic computer show (ie. CGE, etc.).

There is a PayPal option!!

Actually, you're not the first person to think there isn't, perhaps it's not clear enough?

On this page: http://www.qwak.co.uk/order.htm

"Click on one of the following 'PAY NOW' buttons" ... "then be taken to a PayPal page"

Got my copy yesterday! Great job. It's very enjoyable.

One question, is there a way to choose the starting level? Or, any other cheats?

What happens after the 300 copies are sold? Are more going to be produced?

Glad you like it!

Sorry, you can't actually choose the starting level (you'll be able to do this with the PC version .. coming soon).

Sadly, there are no cheats. When you have the game playing prowess of a ninja ... you don't need to cheat. ;-)

After all 300 copies have sold (err don't you mean *if* they sell?) ...

After that a publisher with a big bag of money will come along and the game will be released through 'normal channels' and they will beg me to produce a version for the DS (and they will also give me a big red ferrari).

That may or may not happen!

Releasing source? Just not likely to happen, unless you can demostrate a way for that to pay the bills! hehe.

Great game, which deserved a dose of CPR! I just wish I could play it in full screen mode in the Mac version of Virtualboy Advance. There doesn't seem to be a stretch option as there is in Windows. Booo!

You get a permanent clicking noise when playing it in BoycottAdvance by the way. I know this isn't an issue with the game, it's a known emulator bug. Just a FYI for any other Mac users.
