Nice game!

Enemies are cool, and big sprites. Also a lot of songs, good job!!

Thank you! Hope you enjoyed!

Hola, en el fichero Half_Rest.dsk, teneis que renombrar el archivo "Half_Rest.bin" a "HalfRest.bin", es decir hay que quitar el guion bajo, sino da un error de Bad Command en CPC6128 al ejecutar el archivo.

Hola! Muchas gracias! Lo tenemos solucionado pero estamos ajustando un par de cosas, en cuanto esté subido de nuevo te avisamos!

Hola! Ya hemos solucionado el problema y tienes una nueva version subida con 3 niveles jugables.
