    Best game I've played in a while!

    Really nice game! It is challenging, and fun to play and discover all the levels!

    I had a little trouble getting it to run on linux, however. In `levelModule.py`, the functions saveTo/loadFromPickle open the level#.dat files as text files. This causes issues, since Windows and Linux use different characters to determine line breaks (\n\r on windows, just \n on linux, if I recall). Files containing binary data, like the output from pickle, should be read and written with binary mode enabled, ie "rb" or "wb". A quick fix for Linux users is to add the universal newlines option, "rU" and "wU".

    To review, a quick fix for linux systems, change line 42 to open files with "wb", and on line 47 to open files with "rU" in `levelModule.py`

    Thank you a really lovely game.

    And thank Dough. I wouldn't be able to find out myself, why the game crashed after the introductory screen.

    It's precisely a concept I would develop for 2 years, though in 3D. I'd have made this 2D game!
    About Dough's remark: I can't make it run (from source) under Python3.1.4-32/Win7 for the same reasons. When using "wb" and "rb" modes it then complains about "ImportError: No module named levelModule".

    Excellent concept/coding though. Well done!
