- A few map tweaks based on Tim's feedback
- Fix a couple of bugs in my game engine (again, based on Tim's feedback)
- Add graphical icons on the teleporter UI (I've had blank placeholders sitting there for months now)
- Finish the options and license/credits screen (I've used a ton of Creative-Commons licensed art and sounds, so I have a lot of credit that needs to be mentioned)
- Finish the leaderboard and cloud save integrations
- Add an ending sequence
- Test, Test, and test again
- Release the game, get rich, and retire

Robo-Ninja Boss Fight
My office-mate Tim has been so kind as to play through Robo-Ninja, giving me great feedback along the way. A week or so ago, he finally got to the end -- at least so far. He got to the room right before the main boss. And has been patiently waiting for me to give him a boss to fight.
Well Tim, we're almost there. I think the boss is done. Although once you kill him, I don't have any sort of victory sequence or anything. He dies and you're just stuck in his room. But hey, progress.
I ended up NOT giving him multiple forms after all. Partially because I'm ready to finish this thing, and partially because while testing it, he seems hard enough already.
