The game is based on a sample called adventure.asm which you can find on the
www.6502asm.com (http://http) website. (Simply select that file from the dropdown, press Compile, then Run and play with the WASD keys to move). The small sample is enjoyable to play, simple as it looks, and works, so it made a great learning project.

The game has primitive graphics as you can easily see. However, the potential for the Lynx is so great. Single colored blocks can be replaced by better sprites and all of a sudden you have a fairly decent adventure game. Enough room for (easy) improvement. For a programmer it should not be too hard to see what it takes to program the Lynx.

This simple game can be downloaded for free and works perfectly with the Handy emulator or a Lynx flash card.

I wonder if there are plans to upgrade the graphics on this game since the Lynx is so much more capable.

He seems to be suggesting he will, this was his first effort at coding on the Lynx

There are. ;)
And not just the graphics, this can be a starting point for much greater games.

I will when I can.
I offered various homebrewers my help because I enjoy pixel graphics and want to see the scene thrive... not to mention my free copies of the games I worked on. :)
