HA! I love it. It may be buggy, it may be simple, it may be
a real crappy game so far, but it's still neat-o-rifiic.
Keep up the good work, I can't wait to see he finished game.

As for the controls, I sometimes found myself moving more than
one screen at a time when I would push the buttton.  I would
put a delay in between the time the button is pressed and the next time it
is checked if I were you or just don't check the button again until after
it is no longer depressed.  Otherwise, I think it's a pretty good idea
for a supercharger game.
