I don't think I've played a Tic-80 game before. It's got a really cool retro look to it, the black backgrounds with the shading on the other tiles make it stand out. I like the tileset you've created here, the dungeon section especially looks really nice. I liked all the different elements you managed to get into the game, like the waterfalls, springs, water sections, spikes etc. that must have been a lot of work to get set up in time for the Compo! Respect! :)
