I'll have to resist the temptation to tamper with the game, making it easier just for the video : ) At least I can practice the more difficult areas first though ... new jump code update will help, it's 'awaiting review'.

Nooooo, we can't be talking about the same game! It was revolutionary!

Don't forget Ben Daglish ... I actually met him once! RH's in-game music for Delta was the best SID track I reckon.

One minor suggestion? I've already overwritten my save file by hitting the 'new game' button about halfway through the game. I was fine with it because it just meant I got to play through it again, and potentially shave off a few minutes, but maybe have a confirmation button if you're about to lose a saved game?

I was going to suggest the same thing. I've accidentally done it once so far.

The update (1.00.7) should be available now. The jump button is a bit more friendly, especially when jumping out of vertical water. Thanks for spotting that, I've realised my playing style was compensating for the problem

Ah, this will be in the next update ... I stripped back the UI for this game, going for the basic/retro approach, but the 'new game' button clearly needs an are-you-sure!

Ok how do I get past the bear in area 16. I can't jump over and I can't run under. I must be missing something.

Edit: Figured it out by accident.

Finally finished. 3:46 with 271 deaths. Fun game. I'll probably try again for a better time.

Hello, an update's just been released (1.00.8) which includes an 'are you sure' screen for the 'new game' option, so no more accidental overwrites. Thanks for the feedback on that

Just played through at 52:10 with 35 deaths ... 10+ of those were from a single area, tempted to get the editor out
