Hi Rob,

thanks for explaining about thepower led . I probably saw it on a preview image somewhere before. It's good to know that I'm not going mad.

It's nice to know you can choose a different palette for the display.

Hi Edwin, really glad you're enjoying this! :)

I decided to lose the power LED as it was a bit distracting, and I didn't think it looked that good.  It seems a bit tidier without it to me.  I forgot to mention that if you press 'E' you can change the colour palette, of which there's four to choose from.

I wasn't too keen on clipping the ghost sprite, just purely to save some drawing time, but when I saw how funny it looked going over the edge of the bezel, I decided that was how it had to be.  Breaking the 4th wall is always very funny! :p

Adding keys was a bit of a nightmare, I neglected to consider keyboard input until right at the end of the project, but I'll definitely add ctrl and cursors if I update it in the future.

Thanks again,
