I find that restricting the player's vision almost never makes a game better.

I do not understand how to control the player in the game. Loved the lighting effect. All in all a
great game, beautiful pixel style.

It's a shame that you didn't had enough time.

looks really unfinished...

Not much of a game yet so not very fun, looked pretty nice though.

As you said, not too much too do in the game, so not too fun. Anyway, I always like to test it and
give a little feedback. Let's see if we can see a little bit more of the game in the future :-)

It looks cool, but there's not much there. I guess you warned us that it was incomplete.

nice graphic and sound but unfortunately incomplete

So sad you hadn't chance to complete it.

Nice graphics and sound, but almost no gameplay. Occasionally broken by RuntimeError
(infinite recursion in a collision routine) or AttributeError (TitleScreen lacks an update

> I'm reusing portions of my last entry for pyweek I'm not sure you are allowed to do that... but
whatever. I generally don't vote to DQ, because the fun is what matters and you clearly didn't
cheat enough to win ;) So, I pushed the ball and the key card around a bit. Then fell off things
into a black screen where I would occasionally see a flash of graphics but could really not do
anything. ESC crashed because: ------ File
line 391, in run currentState.update(time) AttributeError: 'TitleScreen' object has no
attribute 'update' ------- So, hmm. Not a lot of fun. Maybe I am missing something and you can
use the ball or the key card somehow. I did like the sound the ball makes, and how it changes in
volume as you approach, and the spotlight effect.

It's a shame you didn't manage to finish, because there were a few interesting elements.
Namely the shadows, and horrifying sound of the red ball thing.

There are no instructions in the README. is executable but it doesn't have a proper
shebang, so it doesn't work. Running it with "python" works and the arrows move the
player around. I found that 'w' is for jumping. Feels like old spectrum games with no docs and no
redefine keys option :) I can't do much. Push some things, fall and die (I guess). It's a pity, I
like how it looks. Pressing ESC crashes the game: Traceback (most recent call last): File

Most of the code is from
