Funny sounds. Interesting enemies. Nice story.

I don't seem to have enough vertical screen resolution to display all the screen so I had to be always on the platforms. Shouldn't be so hard to fix, as the upper part of the screen is almost unused.

Is there really no ending ? Really good idea though, was surprised the game did detect my computer, haha! Nice puns and sounds.

blob - I had so many plans and too little time, so had to end it like that. Have a few voice cuts that I'm really gutted I had to leave out (PCEyes with pirate-y "Aye, Cap'n" voices would've been awesome). The final boss would've been [the original] Tron's Master Control Program :)

fanatiko - Sorry! Display options were on my to-do list, but didn't make it to the final cut. Ended up with what looked good on my screen :S

mikolalysenko - It's Java so should run on linux (I only pasted the link into the Windows box :S). Let me know if it doesn't work.

I like the somewhat crazy style :D
It got quite hard where it says PCEyes...

Fun and simple. At first I was like "wtf I have 100 bullets why is it only shooting 4? Oh... I get it"

I'm picky about how platformer controls feel, and for me the jump was to high and the moving was too slow and imprecise at the same time. And I was getting some apparently random slowdowns in places.

But a very clever take on the theme.

Very amusing. Very simple and basic. I enjoyed it.

Funny take on the theme.

However due to the high window not really playable on my laptop. In level 2 I always fall into some off screen holes.
Neat sounds effects!

I love the intro and how the basic platforming felt! I had the same trouble as some others with the game taking up too much vertical space (I'm on 1366x768 on this laptop, which made it a bit tricky. I'll try this on my main PC when I get back to it.) but I definitely enjoyed what you were going for.

Nice take on the theme and I liked the intros!

Quite clever take on the theme, and both the story and the names of the enemies are really funny.
Boy, and is that title a winner! XD
That said, the movement was too slow and had too much inertia for me. Also, maybe the Big Endians' (hehe!) shots should be slower, or fewer.

Cool little game, for sure!

Sorry, can't judge since I don't have windows.

The ammo in binary and score in hex is a nice touch.
