    Cool Here's my little x-mas present to all you guys...

    I made a new game, called ZimLar. It's acutally quite nifty. yes, it's an rpg, and yes, it's text-based. But dont let that turn you off! Remember, I made Xtreme Fight, and you thought that was cool, right? Anywas, please check it out and tell me what you think. Read the readme for instructions.

    I am against the teaching of evolution in schools. I am also against widespread
    literacy and the refrigeration of food.

    First of all, thanks for the great gift. Especially thanks for making your code standard enough to compile properly on my iBook. I have a few suggestions, but before I offer them, I want to say that I think you did a great job. As a fellow programmer I realize how much time and effort you put into that.

    1) Make the program a little more robust. I wouldn't suggest using getch(). When I type in yes, the program jumps 3 moves ahead. I realize that the game was meant to take only single character input, but you still might want to guard against that.
    2) Allow upper case letters e.g. Y or y. This suggestion is rather insignificant.
    3) Allow more to happen at a quicker rate. I'd suggest finagling whatever random function you use to allow for more to happen and less just walking around.

    Once again, thank you for the great gift. I look forward to pouring over your code.
