A downloadable game

Your last memory of the free world is:  you walking alone in the basement parking garage, you reach for your keys and next thing you feel is a thud and then everything turns to blackness. When you emerge from the darkness a monstrous face appears on the once static filled wall tv monitor. It says to you, "Welcome to my Deth Complex!". You find out quickly that death is lurking around every corner! You must find and rescue your son Billy, who also has been abducted, and find a way out of this factory of Death!

The graphics are nice and the mood is cool, gameplay is challenging and fun, even though pixel perfect player collisions are a bit too unforgiving (even using a collider slightly smaller than the whole player would go a long way towards making the game more playable and less stressful).

The animation when the player hits an enemy is strange, looks to be kinda glitchy, I don't know. Could use a lives counter, too.

The main issue I have is it crashes very often. Tried with the latest FCEUX, after a few deaths what happens is shown in the attached snapshot.

Nice little glitch out there! Here is mine from the other day lol. Try using Mesen, it is much more reliable.
