    If you have Python and Pygame installed, you should just be able to double-click  If you are having trouble, email me - defensoft at gmail dot com.

    Hmm, I can't get it to work due to it asking for a savefile on the start. How do I start a new game?

    Looks great, nice job. Would you mind if I used the source code to help me make a 2d plat-former? with a level editor
