1st of all, congratulations on the work. I've been a fan of Nether Earth since I was a kid. I still play it on a z80 emulator, from time to time.
1. the "up" and "right" arrow keys are reversed in your game (i.e. in the original I advance w the right arrow, in your version I advance with the up arrow.
2. In the original game, the robot "remembers" the last command key (if I push one arrow, the robot will advance in that direction untill it meets an obstacle). In your version, if I release the button, the robot will stop (dumb robot! :)).
3. In the original game, in the build robot menu, the default active command is bipod, I am directly in the robot parts list, in your version, the default command is exit, so I have to press right twice before entering the list of robot parts.
4. The game crashes under MS Win 2000 Pro (maybe it's my computer, I don't know). I will test it under MS Win Me and 98 SE with my friends and if I will encounter similar problems I'll let you know.
In the end, again, congrats for this idea, of remaking this classical piece!
