And it has a retro look to it.

But why is the first option just an "A" by itself?

BTW which version did you start from?  In my version I completely rewrote the text display 
as what we had was geared towards a character-cell display, which was no good with it 
using a proportional font.  I think I found that some existing saved games wouldn't load, 
but there's no problem loading games that were saved with that same version.

The version I've contributed I emailed to Walter and he eventually put it up on the 
website.  Is there any reason the same can't be done in this instance?
