Will paly.

It works better at 1920p than it does at 1440p though.  The background past 1920 pixels is bright white, which creates a fair bit of contrast.

The CSS in the page's source is a little weird.

Code: [Select]
background: ${BACKGROUND_COLOUR};

the grey background outside the "game window" is actually being drawn by game maker, and its supposed to fill the whole browser window, but i realized if you resize the window it doesnt expand the background accordingly..... i think i can fix that

if you are seeing bright white without ever changing window size though then thats weird but hopefully u arent

Oh okay, that's probably it.  I moved it from one window to another when that happened, so that would do it.

So things were going well until I hit the room "Nuts and Bolts".  Then I got a little spawn camped.  I ran out of lives.

To be fair, there were adequate lives beforehand.  I just wasn't able to adapt quickly enough.

Though if you want to soften it a bit, one change would be making the hallway into the next room slightly longer (two blocks instead of one).  So you still need to move, but you can catch a breather at least.

altho now im thinking about how the original version of the game (the one made in five hours that i didnt like) was kind of absurd and unfair and thoroughly unpleasant..... an example of how uncomfortable art ends up having its rough edges sanded away for the sake of mass appeal

Hey could you add an option to pay 99 cents to unlock more lives?  We don't all have time to grind out lives ya know.

im actually also the masses because i reworked the game to make it appeal to myself more.....

adding MTX (thats what we call microtransactions in the biz) seems like a good plan, ill put some video ads in there too that you can watch to get bonus lives
