Go for the Zelda approach. ~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~ I don't know, part of the thrill of Adventure is the wierd way you have to kill the dragons. One of the fun things I like to do is to drop the sword and lure the dragons into running into it. Kind of reminds me of the finale to "Planet Of The Dinosaurs". Or it's really great when the Bat flies by with the sword and kills the dragon. The Zelda approach would make for and easier game, but would I be "modernizing" the gameplay too much? ~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~ >>But this project is still a long ways off for me, I've got to finish this >>semester first before I'll get any serious programming time in. > ><sniff> I smell vapor.

Or it could just be the chili I had for lunch. I'm going to make a serious effort to get some sort of original game done this summer. But you never know. There's a chance I might have to go on tour with a celtic folk group, but hopefully that won't be until the fall. If only I had a pause button that would stop all time everywhere else in the world! man, the things I could get done.
