I dunno :-) ..

i didn't want to keep repeatedly posting every new release. i was going
to try and write things about it's development perhaps in some kind of
vague context i've yet to imagine, but that never happened because i
got sucked into the coding of it. cheers tho.

Glad you like it. I can't complete levels 6 and above, it is tough :-)
it was partly out of curiousity, to see if i could complete it after
almost 20 years (eek).

With the view, i was trying to faithfully recreate the game - up until
load/save of replays that is. but yes, that's a good suggestion
particularly for those new to the game, easily made as an option.

i will only make one last post here about xorcurses when everything is
complete and then if you like it enough you'll just have to remember to
check back to my website once in a while... i'm trying to let people
know about it via other linux gaming sites when i have time.

cheers for the comments,
