Good luck with your project purestrain, looks really nice.

About bigger tiles.. Last night I tried to implement 3 levels of zoom, one with 8x8 tiles, 16x16 tiles and 32x32 tiles. The problem is that there just isn't enough memory for the 32x32 tiles. J2ME is very limited in memory and cpu power, so resizing them on the fly isn't an option. On my phone (Nokia EM 5130) the tiles as shown in the pic above are - in my opinion, just right.

Currently I'm implementing save/load, so we'll see how that turns out.

Thank you all for the feedback that's about enough I need for now. Thanks again!

New question:
Does the name "Swords and Shit" sound appropriate for a roguelike that's a bit humorous?
Does this icon represent the name well?


I lol'd. Appropriate for all audiences? Probably not. Appropriate for the majority of RL enthusiasts? Most likely.
Not for me, but some times I get too serious with this sorta things :)

Perhaps make it punnier  "Swords n' Stuff"   being that the nature of the game is likely putting Swords In Stuff trying to kill you for loot and/or kicks.

Swords and Stuff sounds better. I'd play it :)

Yeah, Swords n' Stuff might be a bit better. Have to come up with a new icon tho. Like the pun, good idea getter77!

Maybe just have that same Sword skewering all kinds of "common" stuff to the game like a shishkabob?  A Door, a skeleton, steak, and so on.
