Have you tried to throw a bomb towards the upper border of the level? I had a graphic glitch once, the explosion wasn't removed from the screen.

ouch! that's true! (luckily I'm in my lunch break, so I could fix it right away). I just updated the release Smile

(the problem was that I was holding the "y" coordinate in an 8bit register, and when copying it to a 16bit register to calculate the map pointer, I forgot to check to see if "y" was negative (in which case the most significant byte should be set to #ff instead of #00, for the sign to be transferred properly Smile))

I just recorded a small explanation of how to play the game in case anyone has tried and has found it too difficult Smile

I recorded on in Spanish: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lq-zJpZ2DqM
And one in English (apologies for my accent ;) ): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-7O2Bz_6Oc8

haha, thanks! I am planning to write a few blog posts about how both Tales of Popolon (the raytracer) and XSpelunker (the level generator) work under the hood for those are are interested. Will post when done (I'm 50% done writing the on on XSpelunker, and will then follow up with ToP).

(basically trying to use the last week before the term starts and my students take up all of my time!!! hahaha)
