  1. I can’t actually get any controls to work at all.

  2. Have you tried clicking on the applet to make sure it has the input focus? It worked last time I tried it, though I had to wait a ridiculously long time for the thing to finish loading.

  3. So umm…. Z works to jump, O works to just kill me, and T works to reset the game. I can’t get anything else to do anything. Thoughts?

  4. For me, left/right moves, up dumps, and down goes down pipes. (I’m talking the inverted “T” of arrow keys, not the ones on the number pad.) Z, O, and T also work as you say.

    I tried using Google to translate some of the Japanese on those pages, but nothing that looked like instructions came out.
