Silence, heathen! That is a classic you’re talking about there.

Although I’m reminded of ZZT and Megazeux… Nice one Wert! laughs

ZZT was awesome, I gotta find it again.

Megazeux is very good, if you like ZZT. You can do more with Robotic and you can actually design the characters in a limited fashion (limits of Ascii actually), and can actully come up with some very good two color pictures with good char editing.

Anything over 120 is useless, so 1000 fps…is like overinflated trash.

And anyone who actually thinks that anyone would make a video card for ASCII games in mind… is an idiot.

Just look at those high-rez alphanumeric characters! :hahaha;
