Author's Description: Update - I've decided to take this game off of BETA status since I've had no real problems with it. I've updated the demo fixing a major issue: Now when you run the game it tries to get all the 320x240 video modes first and doesn't go for 640x480 unless all the low resolution modes fail. I've also added a manual video mode option to the command line arguments. Read the readme.html file for more info on the "-res" switch.
This is my first online release of a sidescrolling action game. I have worked very hard on this game's engine to make it look and feel like the old classic adventure games for the nes and snes. As of right now, the game is completely finished and there is a download available for windows (dos included) and linux!

*Up to 32-bit color 320x240 graphics.
