Thanks for the comment Eric.
Most of the people who play it the first time tell me it's a little difficult to control with the keyboard, but once they get used to it, it seems to flow. The jumping is a little different than other Mario games but I find it suits the game style and levels well. You can change the controls to WSAD for the arrows and some other keys for jump and run and shoot if you want to run around with your left hand. The Setup Controls program included allows you to change the default keyboard keys and also set up a joystick or gamepad. Also, this game gets hard fast because there are not many levels and I wanted it to be challenging to finish. The final version will ease in to the difficult levels allowing time for getting used to controlling Mario.
There was no way I was going to use old levels for this game. I was not going to make many levels at first but I got used to it and now I plan on the final version of the default mod to have 8 full worlds with an average of 10 levels each. Keep your eye on the site for updates if you enjoyed it.
