Yeah I love that high contrast look. The UI is a bit unfriendly. I needed to put some messages in to give feedback but ran out of time so just stuck some noises in. I think the problem in the vid is you're mage ran out of moves. So couldn't go to the next tile. You can notice the mage has mov:0. But needed a "Out of moves" string really.

Lovely graphics, though I wasnt sure if I was playing it correctly... I included it in my ZX Specturum Basic Jam compilation video series, if you’d like to take a look :)

True. Though maybe i'll put a nice little tune in instead. Could probly do a bit of optimisation to get the map loading faster too, now i'm not in such a hurry.

Not sure about the earlier complaint re: a tone for each tile. Just turn off the sound.

The map was loading so slow I thought insanity might be preferable to boredom. I admit... I just yanked the speed up on my emulator to get the map printed out quick.

Duuude. What in the world possessed you to make the game play a tone for each map tile? I had to give up after the 40th or so lest it drove me crazy! :P
