So far, I haven't received much feedback, but the feedback I have received on the game has been pretty glowing:
This just in: I am 100%, all-the-way-in on @LoneSpelunker. Even in alpha, after a few minutes, I'm aglow. pic.twitter.com/vKQJVCZy1J

@LoneSpelunker I just played your game for 4 hours straight. Worth it!

So, it's looking like people are enjoying the game. That is really gratifying!
There has been one major problem - the captcha I was using to block potential spambots. Apparently, it was so good that it also kept out humans. This was by far the source of most discussion on my game, sadly.
I have since eased off of the captcha requirements, and made the requirements that remain a lot more forgiving and understandable. Hopefully, this will allow people to get in and play while still defending the site from people wanting to post ads.
