So, the Winter Break wasn't as productive as I would have liked it to be. I only recently got my character controller to a place I felt was "OK" but it's still not where I'd like it to be. Still, the Platformer is starting to take some semblance of shape. I figured it couldn't hurt to post up my early build to get some opinions on what you guys think of the controls. Please excuse the programmer art. I have a talented Pixel Artist I know coming on board to work on the game with me, and that'll change the aesthetics for future builds. For now, you'll just have to deal with putrescent colored blocks and NES graphics.
Here's the link if you'd like to download the build: RingOfFire v 0.2.4
