Here's an 8-screen demo of the game so far. All control is with Joystick 1, you won't need to be near the keyboard again until you quit.
Pushing up starts the game ... Eric can jump back and forwards, walk back, forwards, and pushing down makes him crouch.
Note: The edges of the ditches don't really support Eric's weight. He's only an Elf but grass vs elf is a no-brainer. If you're near the edge, either back up a little or jump quick and don't try crouching!
Screen eight contains a gang of wasps that I personally cannot get past. The game will lock up once you are past them, but can anyone playtest this and confirm if they got past the wasps?
