I think it should fit in 8K. Maybe even 4K.

All gameplay in Sword of Fargoal is generated on the 
fly, you get new mazes & challenges everytime you play, 
so no ROM is needed to store maps or something like 
that. The maps are played screen by screen - no 
scrolling, so I'll most likely come up with visuals 
similar to "Maze Craze", only I think I'll not use PF0.

That is, if I manage to live with 128 bytes RAM. When I 
see that there's no chance at all to do it like that, I 
might as well do 32K and pre-generate some hundred maps.
