Just wanted to say that I've just tried this out and WOW.  Finally, an amazing rogue like on the DS.  It's awesome.  My only query is...there's an inventory but no items to pick up (except chips).  Is this something that will later be implemented?  Or do items only spawn later on? 

Still, amazing work.  This is a game that will certainly be staying on my supercard on a permanent basis!   8)

For some reason the Keyboard only appears after 10~20 times of hammering on the L shoulder button D:

Is it only me or for others too ?

The keyboard comes up immediately for me when pressing L.  Overall, I've found everything in the game to be very responsive.

The inventory is not implemented because this is a 7DRL [seven day roguelike]. This game was born just to make a little library to develop RL on the DS. In the future i'll make a game with more and more than ASCIIWAR. One week is not a good time to make a complex game, but is enought to make something playable.
See you soon [may be the next compo] with more feature 8)

Well, that's fair enough.  I love the game anyway, it's one of my favourites in the competition, and I hope you'll do more!  Thanks!
