    You didn't use a graphics library?

    So you used bios/os interrupts?

    use a dictionary. wares should be wears, and fizze should be fizz.
    the sound and the fact that the intro can't be skipped annoys me. the graphic artwork is great, but the way it's put on the screen sucks. my suggestions:
    animate the characters(if possible)
    speed up the intro, or at least give an escape key
    more detail in the background(other than blue)
    use transparent sprites

    Your full of it. I don't think you can use allegro with Borland C++ 3.1, can you? Cause if I was using a graphics library, the game would be MUCH better.

    You can use Allegro with borland 3.1

    You probably used BGI then, which is a graphics library.

    if any of these lines are in your code then you are using a graphics library:

    #include <graphics.h>

    or

    #include <allegro.h>

    nope. Even if i DID use BGI, a .BGI file would be in with the exe, wouldn't it?

    Why don't you use a graphics library such as allegro then?

    Using the DOS 320x200 sucks

    I wanted my game to be small, so I could fit it on floppys for my friends. With graphics librarys, aren't your exes really big?

    Alll those .xff files could be in one file which you could call data.dat. Because they are only about 13k each

    Only if you use MSVC . Anyway, most zip programs have an option to divide your zip into several parts so you can fit it on more than one 3.5".
