So this time around, I learned two things that are probably equally as important as each other. Firstly, always consider how other people would play. It doesn't take much time to add alternate control methods and FAR more people prefer WASD keys than arrows. When I make a game, I make the controls around the way I think is best for me, but clearly I'm in the minority to prefer arrow controls and I have to remember that next time around. Secondly, go easy on the caffine. A dozen cups of coffee a day makes it difficult to sleep and the caffine jitters are not comfortable! Other than that, I enjoyed making this one and look forward to the next!
