Raider - Episode 1

This was originally 'Raider 2', but since the original 'Raider' was never finished, this one took the title and that became 'Raider Zero'.
I was a big fan of platformers before I ever knew about RPGs, and spent my childhood designing platformer levels on paper, etc, so I wanted to make at least one platformer at some point.
It was never meant to be anything special; just a sort of generic platformer, in a pixelated style. However, due to my level-making approach, what it ended up as was something fiendishly difficult that only the most devoted players can finish at all!
It was originally going to be released in five parts, but that may not happen due to the lukewarm reception of the first two.
Anyway, in this, you play as 'Arkus Zei', a Cyrian 'space pirate' who makes a living from raiding dead starships for treasure. He comes across a drifting wreck, and investigates...

Jesus. I am not skilled enough with platformers to even get past this level (New Super Mario Bros. doesn't count, does it?). I only managed to complete the tutorial. So, I admit. I was beaten by the game. Anyway, this was one of the best platformers I've ever played. The soundtrack matches the "lonely pirate space" thing, and the story is pretty nice too. I wish I had enough will to get deeper into it. :P Congratulations, Pseudo. Good luck with your games... And everything else.

Fantastic game, absolutely loved it. The character design for Arkus is very good, I like the concept. The soundtrack was also excellent, fit the game well and didn't get annoying or monotonous at all.

I've noticed that you can "stick" to the ceiling, allowing you to "climb" over gaps and spikes.

This would be caused by the fact that hitting the ceiling does not end your jump. Be thankful. That is so very useful.

It seems that when one holds the down arrow key while pressing the up arrow key to get on a ladder, one is unable to jump off the ladder.
