Ah. Over-zealous optimisation. I cut out a routine which wasn't called...
but it WAS executed by fall-through code. Oops! I'm a bit pressed for
time, so I'll do a fixup version later tonight. Thanks for pointing that
I'm sure you figured this out, but I played one more time before hitting
the sack and noticed that all I had to do was hold down the fire button...
forget even pretending to be jumping. Talk about your "Kid Mode"! :^)
I also had the little fire dude move down off of a block once towards
nothing (no block for him to land on) and then *wham* he kills me (I was
one block to the right of the initial block). I'll try and get that to
repeat if I have more time to play tomorrow. Not sure if that was a
feature, so to speak, but it certainly didn't seen intuitive.
Anyhow, I got a good laugh after figuring out all I needed to do was hold
down the fire button. You shoulda seen my face trying to time jumps and
the button just right, jumping back and forth as fast as I could. *sigh*
