That was a well deserved 1st place for the Giant ROM 2 jam, congratulations! :) It had an own kind of humor, the concept of a two-in-one game was super neat and I also liked the retro flair thanks to the visuals. Really some very sweet work. <3 Happily I recommended it in an article as well as I uploaded a quick gameplay video of it. :)

Best wishes,


This game is incredible and deserves to win all the prizes (Critical Crisis gets hard as Fuck, the last boss is ridiculous but I finally beat him and Hawk's cigar mimics my heart)
