So with the gruefooding of the recent submission on this game and discussion in the submission thread
regarding whether it has merit as a remake, I figured I'd start a thread on the game itself.
The actual game is open-source
, so those who are so inclined could rebuild it so that the original challenge is there. I've already grabbed the code off of SVN to play around with it and see what I can tweak.
Personally, I think that even though this game won't ever have anything in the Moons tier it's worth using in order to develop TAS habits such as frame-precision and researching engine quirks (the ladders trick as well as understanding RNG and AI manipulation).
