This is a game I'm working on for my personal competition against Steve Wardale. It's called Zone Runner, and the objective of the game is to simply run through all the zones (of which there'll be about 40 odd, hopefully), collecting coins. It's a mix of an arcade/retro nature, and the game will take place through increasingly challenging levels.
And with only three lives, you're going to have your work cut out for you. Especially when you consider the fact that virtually everything, from mines to fireballs will do anything to stop you. Featuring a nice custom platform engine and rather tasty graphics (in my annoying Eric Vaughn style). Hopefully this will be good, but then again, I said that about Smidgets X...look where that got me
