I finally implemented a basic menu title screen and also a screen for when the player dies. I will be adding more detail to them both soon. I've also fixed a few minor bugs and tweaked some variables related to movement to give a better overall feel. I've been struggling to produce music for the game but I am learning. I plan to finish programming the first boss very soon. I hope to get a basic alpha demo out soon so I can get some feedback and suggestions to further develop the game.
