Really cool. I liked the minimalist overall effect. :P
Do you guys plan of make the story about coloring the world (I am refering to the dialogue of the guy in the house.)
Suggestions:
-Dialogue button on select, is very uncommon. (But you might have a reason for that).
-Pressing UP to enter/exit house was not intuitive at first. I didnt know what to press. Maybe having a 8x8 sprites on the door (⇧) to invite pressing the button.
-Regarding the "exiting house part", I struggle to find the exit.

But its a very cool and enjoyable start. :) Thanks for sharing.

Hey nice work on the newer updated version. Many changes have occurred to make for a far smoother gameplay experience!
The little touches and instruction go a long way to understanding what to do initially. I made it to the little flying boss as well and I truly enjoyed the mix of single screen and 2 way side scrolling. One thing I had issues with is the instant death block in the ladder rooms. It does not look threatening so maybe the shape language could change a bit since it looks safe and its not!
Overall, I had a really good time and will play new releases. Oh and the new music makes a huge difference, its awesome!

Wow, the cover looks awesome! I love how you aged it to make it look authentic and the style of the illustration is great too.
