Development Info:

This is the first game I have made, it is for an open source class I took Summer 2012 at PSU.  The game itself is short because I ran out of time for development, but if people enjoy it I could add more levels and a longer storyline.

Real cool game. Was reading in the read me that Mac was untested and would just like to say it works beautifully on MacOS 10.8 after I set up pygame per the instructions on

Cool game, really liked it at the first part. You might wanna make better 8 bit graphics, looks a bit modern.

I enjoyed playing it :) Before I could though, I had to edit the file and make it not start fullscreen because on my Kubuntu 12.04 laptop with a 1366x768 screen, it would start, but the menu screen would be at the left side of the screen with a strange border at the right to take up the slack. That would be acceptable for a beta game, but I couldn't start it by pressing a key, only Esc to quit.

The other thing is that I didn't realize that I needed something to break crates with. So I thought that the left-click action was broken because I didn't get any feedback that I needed something else.
