And Hey snarfblam, thanks for implementing that great automap feature!
No problem. Thanks for including it in your hack. Makes it all the more worth the effort.
I've spent some time with this hack. Not a fan of swordless segments, and really not a fan of being able to run out of ammo in the beginning. I was on the fence about making a second attempt after I found myself utterly defenseless in the beginning, but I'm glad I did.
The polish put on the graphics has a surprisingly big impact. The world seems well designed makes you want to explore it. Screens look great and make great use of the available building blocks. You're certainly more clever about it than I ever was. I have been having a bit of trouble finding dungeons (maybe I just haven't trekked far enough?) but I don't find myself getting bored or irritated. Swordless segment aside, I'm very impressed with what I've seen so far. Hope to be able to spend some more time with it, maybe this weekend.
