I agree with Liam. The text is very large in comparison to the original and I found the scanlines quite annoying, I would make them optional.

This is a very nice engine!
Two bugs i've found:
  • Pressing down-arrow makes you look at the background, just like in the real game, but it doesn't look back.
  • You can't drown in water.
  • Sped up text sounds a little strange.
  • Momentum, movement and air resistance are still not perfect...
But I'm very surprised to see how great you've done it so far!
Looking at all your previous tests and now at this one, you're making a progress so fast... I'm amazed!
Keep up the good work!

That isn't a bug, in the original you don't turn back until you press another button or move.

Unless someone provides a good sprite font to fit the textbox, it's going to stay blurry and shitty and whatever.

I don't know of any good sprite font except the one in CS+, but I'm sure you can't use that just like the other images in CS+. However I can suggest a normal font called Emulogic which looks the almost exactly the same as the CS+ font.

Currently he is still building the engine and from my guess it is still in an alpha state, also there is no point in telling him because he got banned.
