Gabrien's comments:
Don't know a whole lot about this one, but that map screenshot sure made me think "Super Metroid." Just throwing it up here for now, but chances are won't be able to resist downloading it to see what's what:

It would be cool if chapter 2 finally got finished once Steam Punks finishes the current round of updates.

Thanks for reminding me I needed to buy the iPad version. Hopefully Ash hasn't given up on this title.

Working on a huge overhaul
tons of new graphics/enemies/bosses/weapons/secrets/map system/etc.
I want to try to just have the whole core game in the bag before the next update. I was kind of a newbie when I started BD, and I've learned a TON about making platformers since...like don't put in complicated controls for walking on stairs in your game!

I was considering doing a kickstarter to try to fund my existence for a bit so I can just hunker down and get it done along with maybe 2 other bigger game ideas I have sitting on the back burner. but even if I don't end up doing that it'll get done, it's just going to take a little bit longer.

in it's current build it won't even run on iOS 7 I don't think, so if anyone is going to try it, get the FREE version incase it doesn't run on your phone

And thanks for remembering this game guys! it is my favorite title and when it's time to relaunch I hope to blow the original version away.

Thanks for letting us know! Just a note that the iPad version currently crashes shortly after starting up the game everytime on my 1st gen iPad mini iOS 7.0.3.

I just bought it today after intending to play the free version this weekend but getting sidelined by Cavern. Anyway, I haven't upgraded out of iOS6 and it still runs fine on that so I'm good. I don't intend on upgrading to 7 (some devs say it uses 100MB more memory than iOS6, and I don't need any more handicaps to my poor 4S) until I get my next iPhone (maybe before Christmas). So if it's possible with little work, please consider recompiling the game with the newer version of gamesalad so it'll be supported under iOS7. Just don't require iOS7.

I'm all for buying whatever you make as well as checking out older games.

I love you.

Too forward?

Hard to believe you were a "newbie" when this dropped...

Yesh, please. More Metroidy goodness!

Cheers!
