Thanks! Glad you liked it.
Yes, these are both bugs. Because they don't make the game harder (or un-winnable), I've decided not to fix them until judging for the jam is complete.
I was so excited to reimplement that game over screen in ascii! I ran out of time literally right as I started it. Still might do it...just for funsies....
Good to see PS1 era homages with a strong presence.
