This is really neat! The directional binding of items is a great little twist to add some novelty and tactical depth to a small RL.

That 1x2 title font is great, too. Did you pack the whole thing into the sprite buffer or just the letters needed for the title text?

I just did the letters needed, and actually even less then that, since a bunch of the letters share elements. I got a bunch of ideas for the visual stuff in this cart from https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=2039

I am gonna try and clean up those out of memory issues that people are having today, hopefully you will be able to complete more than 2 quests when I get done with that.

ok! I am now totally out of program space. Added a new quest and a new enemy type though. I tried to reclaim a little program space, but I couldn't figure out the best way to do it.

Nice game! I played 3 screens and then got an "out of memory" error.

urrgh :( @zep is the memory space more constrained in the web version than the client? i.e. maybe the GC runs less often or something?

just under 3 years later, I decided to finally chase down that out of memory error. The cause that I found was having the player get hit by two enemies and die in the same turn. That would cause the game to end twice in a row, which it didn't like doing. There might still be bugs, but at least one is gone.

also, since token counting changed, I now have 3k extra tokens to work with, holy crap. might add some additional stuff to this :D

p.s. my current highscore is 60
