One word about the level 'Coincidentia Oppositorum'.

Ouch!

Heh, I lost about 50 lives (not that I'm cheating) and decided to record my gameplay farce, then I completed it during the recording...

Ale - can you complete this* while playing 'on bread and water'? And do you really expect anyone else to be able to?!

*(the whole game).

Completed, nice ending sequence.

I think I've been a little bit harsh on the difficulty, the collision is very fair and you've split the game into 3 with codes. This would have been pampering the player BITD. I still think 9 lives is too few and the time limit stops the player fully appreciating the fact that each screen is a little masterpiece.

And we'll never agree on hidden platforms :mrgreen:
SpoilerShow
Speaking of which were the hidden platforms on the last level a red herring?
What were the AY tracks btw? I spotted Brian Bloodaxe and JSW.

Thanks for a great game, I really enjoyed it.

50 lives? You cheater! :P :lol:

Hint: The Coincidentia Oppositorum screen can be completed (rather) easily if you start from the right (black) half and then put the right side Alessandro back where you found him at the start before tackling the left (white) half.

Thanks a lot :D Feedback from previous games, especially Seto Taisho Vs Yokai, finally convinced me that people do not have so much time nowadays to stick at a game before completing it, and being able to leave the game to continue it from a certain point later is better than the credits system I employed there. Codes are a way to achieve this without resorting to cheating.

And for admiring the screens, there is the Pause key after all ;)

Two were taken from Tapper, and the Radetzky march is taken from Technician Ted, but the beginning of the medley? Didn't you really remember it? :(

For shame! I forgot to say Manic Miner.
