First off - wow!  I'm very impressed so far.  I'm really hoping that this 
turns into a finished game; I have fond memories in my youth of playing 
Jumpman on the Atari 8-bit computers, and in later years on my PC with the 
Jumpman Lives collection.

This inspires a question about game construction philosophy...

When you're making a game that has a great many number of levels, do you find 
that is better to design most of the levels first and then write code to 
accommodate them, or design a couple of levels, write the code for them, 
design a couple more levels, and so on?
