Great video, the game looks like a blast. Reminded me of Super Mario Bros., playing as the Princess and complete with Podoboos. Those graphics are exceptional (imo) for a 2600 game. Will be keeping an eye out for this :113:
It's time to dust off the ol' 4-switch woodgrain :p

I love girl heroes!  This looks like a much needed scroller for the VCS!! Very nice artwork considering the many limitations.  I wonder if it's ASM or VWBASIC!?

I've not updated this thread in a while.  Here is a new video showing the progress made with the game.

Yes, this is coming alone very nicely.  It's amazing to see this sort of game on a console that was designed to play Pong-styled games!
