Mighty impressive. I remember playing the early WIPs, and so can appreciate even more how full the game looks now.
Nice title screen. The whole visual design of the game is remarkable, especially when aware of the hardware limitations.
Wish there was a way to turn off the music. It sounds good in the first few minutes, but then gets tiring to hear.
The transition between death and life indicator screen is too abrupt. I think it would be better to cook a small death animation or sound, to communicate more clearly to the player that he has failed. Think Super Mario death jingle, or Zelda 2 epileptic inducing death flash. Doesn't have to be fancy either.
I believe it would be neat if somehow there was a positive sound when the player finds a secret passage way.
It's hard to believe this is actually running on the ol' VCS. How far have we come since 1979.
Edit: Would be nice to have a "Game Over" screen, that lasts until player input.
