I've updated the Mac build today to get it through the x-code compiler and also fix up a couple of the mono sounds and title tune. While I was at it I removed a load of assets and other stuff that was in the project to optimise it a fair bit. Ironically the game is a little larger but I think that's due to the sound and music files converted for stereo that weren't done orignally.

Oh, and I put that credit in for your lass, 3dz. You won't see it until I update the windows build though as I've only done the Mac one for now.

I seem to have a few donations being made recently for the game that have come from someone viewing the game via Syntax Bomb, which is a nice bonus. Also from one of our contributors but I won't say who just in case they prefer to be anonymous. Thank you anyway.

If only I had some even limited talent for drawing then I'd be a lot happier. I can spend hours tinkering with a sprite and still find it looks crap compared to someone who can draw that would take less than a minute. I know learning is great but there has to be some kind of ability in the first place to make it work. I'm really that bad. Even my handwriting is terrible as it's too slow a process and I would rather type.

I'll still try and do what I can but I'd much prefer to either work with an graphics artist or find graphics that suit what I need, to be honest.

Well don't beat yourself up too much, your entry was completely bug free as far as I can see, with lots of gameplay and challenge - so you won!

I know you've bought-in some artwork before, perhaps that's a solution.  Or maybe look online for pixel art tutorials - plus Adam is our Syntax Bomb Resident Art Guy for advice.
