I like to use the up and down keys to cycle between save and run on the terminal
while developing.

I’ve accidentally scrolled to load instead of save which loads the previously saved
version of my current project in progress. I’ve lost work several times.

It’s an easy mistake to make.
Defintely user error and not a bug,
although I’d consider it a UX issue.

I’d like to recommend a Y/N/C prompt in the terminal
for any command that could cause unsaved work on a project
in progress to be lost.

E.G.

>> LOAD MY_PROJECT
>> SAVE
>> RUN
.... (repeat for a long time)
>> LOAD MY_PROJECT
>> CURRENT FILE MY_PROJECT CONTAINS UNSAVED WORK
>> LOADING WILL REVERT TO PREVIOUSLY SAVED VERSION
>> AND WORK WILL BE LOST
>> ARE YOU SURE YOU WANT TO LOAD?
>> (Y - YES , N - NO , C - CANCEL)

My first game. Inspired by asteroids.
Really enjoyed making it and great learning experience.

Not too hard to win, but if you feel the need to cheat give it the old' Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right...
