Hi, I have the following problem: if you don't defeat the final boss right away, the bombs won't be available to me afterwards. They cannot be selected using either the Select button or Shift. Also, I can not buy new bombs, since I already own them.

That is a very annoying bug, thank you for bringing it to my attention, I will try and fix it

Love the aesthetics and the main character. Just finished it last night. I wanted to share a weird bug I had. When you enter a door while using the sword the next level does not let you use it anymore. Want to see more of this!

Thank you for the bug report! I swear I fixed that bug but obviously not! The game isn't as good as yours, but I'm glad you like it anyway!

It's a game boy rogue lite, I love that :)))

You have an awesome game, and I can't wait to see what comes of it!

Glad you enjoyed it! I definitely want to improve on the idea soon!

I LOVE THE ART. hOPEFULLY YOU KEEP WORKING ON THIS AFTER THE JAM. iT IS FUN NOW BUT IT COULD BE REALLY GREAT.

Definitely! I want to remake it fully, I want to reconsider everything that makes it fun and make it a full game, maybe even put it on a cartridge! Thank you for playing!

This game's neat, it plays well =D Early impression to me is the hit points are a lil' confusing- When I just had one, I thought it was a tall thin 0, and when I found points I was wondering why the 0 hadn't changed. I understood when I got more hp though so it's not a big deal :>

I think you're right, there are a few more things that feel half baked that I didn't test too. Thank you for playing and sharing your views!
