I was able to figure out how everything worked, except the toaster, and win the game, only dying
once. That means the game did a great job of explaining things or making it possible to figure
out on-the-fly. Music was funny and very appropriate. Gameplay was a good balance between
difficulty and fun.
Nice intro, liberal use of cheesy fonts, good progression of difficulty. Very good job! Had
two problems, though. #1 See the traceback. (t was nice when the game reloaded from when it had
crashed.) #2 outlines of some sprites are black. There seems to be a few differences from
windows pygame and os x pygame. I've seen it before. On windows, it seems to detect the alpha
channel of images and will set the appropriate flags when loading to have alpha transparency.
On os x, you have to explicitly set the alpha channel. Hope that helps you. Congratulations!

An all round average game. The best feature for me was the story line. Loved it, found it very
amusing so whoever crafted that gets the Puntastic! award from me. Should go nicely on your CV
;) It's great that it's so hard, but to be honest once I failed a level twice I gave up because I
didn't care that I didn't complete it... knowing that I'd forget about it in a weeks time. In
terms of gameplay I don't feel like you've broken new grounds. The story is creative for sure
but the platform, movement, etc is all very standard. I am looking for a game that I haven't seen
before. If I wanted to time clicking on a screen I'd rather play Helicopter. Sound and music
wasn't unbearable but not particularly enjoyable either.
