I think Alfred's Challenge is good, but not great the way Oystron is.  The
movement of the guy in AC is a little jerky and stiff sometimes, and
certain collisions and jump situations seem too picky.  It's the kind of
thing that I think might have been solved had it been gametested here.  I
also feel that there is better replay value in a shooter with its
randomness vs. a platformer which you can "finish".
