Another screenshot :)

Here's some notes on accent marks, chickendude -- in your word list, you will need to use @ for an accent mark.  For example,

.db "[email protected]" = .db "n'oc"

 But for the 16x16 tiles the accent mark can be in any blank tile you want.

More progress!
--------------------

* If you jump at a smiley face with the correct Russian word, you can no longer wait 2 seconds and collect the question mark that reappears.  Because now a question mark will not appear!  You will have to find another question mark.  I did this so that the player will have to keep going all over the map to complete all 7 questions, just like in the original Word Rescue.
* Fixed a couple of bugs

New screenshot!  This is mostly bug fixes.  For debugging purposes I made it so I couldn't die :)

That's 14 levels done!  My goal for a release is 30.

Good news!  Japanese, Chinese, etc. characters will be 100% supported, including for bonus words.  However, if you want that many characters to be supported, you will need a 3rd application page (right now Slova uses 2 pages)

I've finished the drafts of all 30 levels, so now I need to work on polishing them.  Some of you may be pleased to know that level 29 will have a boss -- the buildup to Level 30 was so epic, I couldn't resist adding a boss!

This is for learning vocabulary from other 'spoken' languages, such as Spanish and French.  Sure, you don't learn grammer, but some people (like myself) have trouble remembering vocabulary.  Check out the first post :D

Because Slova is supposed to be an educational game -- a fun one, but an educational one nonetheless -- I'm adding "shields" to the game.  You can hit gruzzles up to 4 times without dying in a level.
