Looks mighty fine.

My own version did not get very far. Got to 64 kilobytes of source code and 1 level before the burn out set in.

Crikey, all that music adds up in the filesize, huh!!?
Yeah, runs well enough. A lovely little recreation. I didn't play it far enough to get a feel for the RPG elements. I might have another go once I'm >5% awake
Nice game! \o/yeay\o/

@Pakz I barely finished this one myself. Got about 80% of the way done and then it starting getting hard to manage, but at that point I had to see it through.

@Jay Yea, I think the game would be around 7mb zipped without all the ogg music, I try to keep it lossless from the NES original. Would be cool if BlitzMax had an NSF module for music though. I saw you on the hi scores, thanks for playing!
