First playable demo of UtwoPia

Here is the first playable demo of UtwoPia.

Known bugs:

- "The invisible wall" problem
- HUD doesn't work (including the energy counter)
- Wall climb is a little glitchy (especially when you have a solid tile above the player)
- Sometimes the stomp on enemies doesn't work (seems like it mostly happens when you jump on them from a high altitude)

It's not a hard game, but it's probably best if you don't die since there are no checkpoints. :lol:

I have plans to make a map system, but I have no idea how to do it at the current time.

Enjoy the demo:

You've developed a vast world in a pretty short time. Nice graphics too.

Thank you! Being able to relatively easy create games like this is what I love about NESmaker, and having access to extra code that the talented people in here have made is amazing.

I like the stride of the player. He looks so determined :-)

I am a bit stuck and seem. After I defeated the big blob I seem to run around in circles and I can't get to a new area.
I love the splashes when you enter water and the bubbles; that's a real nice touch and detail.

Thank you for the kind words. I have play tested it about 100 times :lol: and still haven't found any screens you can get stuck :) This game is just like the old NES games where you sometimes need power ups to proceed. A little hint: After beating the blob boss you should get a power up that helps you progress. However you might have to backtrack a little bit ;)

I have the jumping shoes and I can shoot.
I'll have a look if I find a way forward, but how can I backtrack? I dropped down on the blob boss.

Okay... I finally made a jump I simply couldn't pull of yesterday XD

I think you should put another monster block tile here, because the blob can jump on it ^^
