Re:

Any chance of an e-book? Pretty please? I've considered an e-book... although I'm pretty sure if I distributed it as a plain PDF, I'd only sell one copy...

It certainly seems to be one of the more interesting systems to launch in awhile. I'd like to say Nintendo has never failed, but everyone remembers Virtual Boy. (Or everyone remembers not picking one up.) I am a little disappointed it's not much more technologically than a GameCube, but the GC is a ...

Re:

(assuming your scrshot is from the start of level 1) Actually, it's from 3x1. (That was the one I had open at the time. I've been playing this quite a b...

It's typically a $1.50 here in the United States. I haven't played many arcade games since I was a kid when it was always 25 cents. Now I understand what older folks mean when they talk about gum costing a nickel at one time. There were $1.00+ games when I was a kid, but that was only reserved for n...
