I looked in the game with windHex,
there aren't a lot of texts but it's done like a puzzle.
I know this system well.
It is used among others in Metal gear, Firebird, deep dungeon 2 and Rune worth.
But to translate it will run out of space.
useful keys:
F1 (go back one step)
shift + arrow keys
space + arrow keys
keys: 1 2 3 4 5
page up: main menu
INS
DEL

I have almost finished the translation but I tried to save a draft game to see what it feels like,
but I get asked for a name again after entering one, over and over again
on my translated version as on the original
Otherwise it looks very good and not too complicated when it's in English

b) change the shape of the character according to
the direction of movement : YES
c) SAMPLE: choose with arrow key and push space bar
to move at right use shift key + arrow key
( do it for the 4 directions of the character )
d) >-< INVERT (choose what you want to invert)
use shift key + arrow key then SPACE

My translation is quite different but not that much fundamentally.

I tested my version and found errors. so I modified it.
Does anyone have a .cas image of the tape files so that I can test more meticulously?
the original from GAME LAND SPECIAL or others.
I cannot save my drafts. Could someone have done it?
My final version will be available when I'm sure we can save.
