This is a platformer made entirely with ascii characters, even using the simple screen mode, so objects could not be rendered anywhere but in thier cell. Objects could be inbetween cells, but the game would just find the closest one for the object to be on. This game uses qbasic interupts for smooth keyboard strokes, and not the clunky $INKEY command that is a queue and doesn't let you know which buttons are down. There was one qbasic game I liked that looked very similar, but had bad controls and I wanted to make a version that worked.
