Awesome! Only thing though, when I die, I get to skip to the next level for free. Is that by design?

Do you have to shoot the Yeti in the cock?

Yeah, I didn't lock anything down.. No point doing that when there's an editor in there, too.
All levels are selectable..

BUT.. If you play from level 1, and get all the way through, you get a bigger score for level 1!

(or, rather, I'm still not sure what to do about the level structure!)

Hi, I really like your game, and it's great that you release for us linux users aswell.

but I seem to be having a problem with the fonts, as they appear small, and squashed. I've tried it on most resolutions, fullscreen and windowed to no avail.

Eeeuw. That's a bit mental!
Shouldn't be doing that..

... You know.. I bet it's that "24" in the filename. I hadn't considered that earlier, though it just an odd quirky filename.

Do me a favour..
.. Rename..
"files/common/04B 24.TTF" to "files/common/WAS_04B 24.TTF"
and rename
"files/common/SVBasicManual.TTF" to "files/common/04B 24.TTF"

run, screenshot.
(this way, I'll know if it's the font being dodgy, or the filename being dodgy!)

Either way, I'll fix it by the next release.. (hopefully, unless it's something worse!!)

I've done it (you can see in the renamed file in the file manager behind the game in the screenshot) but the same result

Probably the filename.. I just banged the thing in at the last minute, without double checking. I'm usually more careful with fonts, after all the Blitz3D font issues. Silly me.

I'll fix it in the morning. (No Linux upstairs)

Meantime, just to double check, has this happened on my other Linux games, or is it just this one (since this is the one with the dodgy font filename)

cool I can't wait.
and I haven't got any problems with your other games fonts.

Good to hear. I'll get around to it later.. stupid amount to do, this morning!

Updated with different font.. Hopefully works now!
Additionally, Death-Bug is fixed, and there's a whole new deadly level to play with!
