A little something for Ava. Normally you defeat enemies by stomping them, but the main menu gives you the option of unlocking a weapon to use during the game. We needed a splash image for the menu so I worked on this over a couple of days.
Think Fire Mario... it allows you to safely pick off enemies from a distance.
It does make certain stages/situations easier, but it kind of takes the fun away from the run and jump style of play. In some ways it's almost too easy to stand back and shoot stuff rather than try to leap around enemies.
