imVergil Thanks! I'm glad you enjoyed it!! I'll hopefully have a new beta/demo in the next few weeks!
Slowly working my way towards the end of the game again ;) Stage 8 level tiles and map completed in one sitting - except for the boss area.

The catapult was interesting to draw - looked at another image while doing it and used a 14px brush to do the rough shape and then chiseled away with the erase tool and 2 other colors... and now I look at it, it's wonky.
Think I'll be plowing through a few more tile sets/maps over the next week. Hopefully will have up to stage 11 finished shortly. Two of the stages are reused since the areas are revisited so once the castle is completed it just gets a slight alteration for stage...15 I think?
May completely redesign the map for stage 3 - it's too open I think...
