Aiyuh, both me and the programmer want the AA to stay, so, yus, !yus!.
And, uh, I think I finally got a good style for the floor here.
Tried to darken the background, atleast on this level. Not sure if I succeeded.


Maybe, since they're not supposed to be viewed at 1x, would be wiser to post them at 2x? I dunno.
Oh yes naked women are beautiful

The Good:
Great name for the game. Don't underestimate a great name.
Great concept too. It almost feels like a boss fight game but with more of a danger room feel to it.
I also like the dark walls and the bright background. The smoke and fire looks stunning.

The Bad and the Ugly:
AA is not a bad idea but currently it looks like you took the character sprites and reduced them to 50% in PS or something. I'd suggest you take a look at "AA-era" games like the ones by the Bitmap Brothers. Black outlines and AA at that scale hurts my pixel soul. If you'd just get rid of the gray pixels around the characters it would be a step in the right direction.

Fine, you win. I'm gonna have to rework the characters sometime soon (read: Not right now), I'll try to improve them. :ouch:
