Hey, this is pretty great! Playing it made me swear a lot, in an entertaining argh-I-keep-dying way. The pumpkin in the beginning is kind of confusing though. I think if you slice it you should get a 1up. That much just makes sense.
Yes, apparently I made a pretty hard game. But nobody likes easy games, right?
You're about right with the pumpkin. Initially it was supposed to give you back some of your health. But I originally made this in 1 month for a competition and knowing my workflow many of the planned features got canned.
Thanks for playing and feedback!
