                         ADDITIONAL NOTES 

                         THIS GAME RUNS AS IT SHOULD IN 
                         FULLSCREEN-MODE ONLY, I STUMBLED 
                         WHEN PORTING IT. SORRY FOR THAT, IF
                         YOU CAN DO BETTER, THE SOURCE IS 
                         INCLUDED. SO, DON'T PLAY IT IN
                         WINDOW MODE, THE GAME IS BEST IN
                         FULLSCREEN ANYWAY.

Control notes:

Press any button (or key) to start the game.
Use left analog stick (or arrow keys) to move character (up, down, left, right).
F (on keyboard) to toggle fullscreen mode.
B (on keyboard) to adjust screen blow-up factor.
Q or ESC (on keyboard) to quit.

Display notes:

Default full-screen resolution is 640x480.
Some monitors (like LCD?) don't do well at low resolutions (blurry pixels).
Edit the files in the settings folder to change the full screen resolution (try
1024 for screenWidth.ini and 768 for screenHeight.ini).
Put a zero in fullscreen.ini to make the game start in windowed mode.


All code, music, graphics, fonts, and animation by me.
I used mtPaint to make all of the pixel art.
I used the SDL Library for cross-platform screen, sound, and user input.
I used MinGW to build the game for Windows.
