The new version of the game features much faster loading times and other polishes too.

Beta 2 improvements:

- Faster level loader/decoder.
- Compressed tileset file format.
- More efficient sprite file format.
- More efficient menu layout format.
- Executable packed with COMPACK from 92K to 56K.

- More stable camera in POW-mode.
- ESC can be used to go back in menus.
- F1 brings up a quick-help screen.
- Some menu polishes.

Yikes, I'm late for the final release of the game. These loading time improvements are probably worth a little delay though, it's a free game anyways :)

If this version proves to be stable, the final release will be pretty much identical to this. So it's quite safe to regard this release as the full game experience.

So... this is awesome - any chance of a final release at some point? assume that some testing has been done by now? :)
