    Am I in the right direction? (plz test)

    Hey, I'm making a game called 'Ed's Dreamland', and don't know if I should stop with it or keep going. My friend keeps on telling me to keep going...which is the only reason I still am. Anyway, to control the sprite you use the arrow keys, where up is jump and down is nothing. left and right is just move. The point is to get through the level with the least steps possible, where you get more tired and hungry with each step. If you take too many steps, the game keeps you back a level. The plot is totally insane, I made it up when I was programming it. To get to another level you have to have the sprite touch the very left of the door, and with 1ups you have run right thorugh them(not jumping). The game stops when you are able to use the town map and choose your own location. Right now I feel really stupid, having you test my game when this is a programming board.

    the game isn't even a meg.
    Please tell me what you think.
    Thank you(for using AT&T)!

    Nice graphics and UI, but the computer beeping is extremely annoying. Try using wav files or such, but please don't use the high-pitched computer speaker!

    I just got up a fixed version...re-download it...the zips even smaller now...got rid of some stuff. Anyway, when you re-download it just press 'S' when in the game to shut off the sound. Maybe then you can play?

    Well, you might want to try blending things together...but that's kinda hard, huh? How about spelling things in the intro right, hmm?

    Beeping is annoying.
    What will people say if they hear that I'm a Jesus freak?
    What will people do if they find that it's true?
    I don't really care if they label me a Jesus freak, there is no disguising the truth!

    Whatever is said in Latin sounds profound.

    ok, I have no idea about the (. It just pops up all over. I'm fixing it now. And Uraldor, sorry but Its hard to accept keystrokes when the game is in dialouge mode, which is why you can't change the sound and can't press escape to quit in the intro.
