    How does it looks now: Screenshot
    2 Threads in background loads different resources. And in this demo.... well, when resource is loaded - it draws on screen.
    Every thread loads 65 32-bit png icons with 64x64 dimensions.
    Theory is - when you know everything but nothing works.
    Practice is - when all works, but you don't know why.
    We combine theory and practice - nothing works and nobody knows why

    Dynamic shadowcasting with multipass rendering. Allow to cast dynamic shadows from any sprite using alpha channel.

    This is small test (can work incorrect, so be kind) of shadow casting that i mentioned above.

    Sometimes too hard to turn where you want. Also one time I got too close to walls and light disappeared for a moment

    Ah I solved the turning problem by simply queuing the character's next move if it comes available. I did this for my Subject 33 game, originally a simple Night Stalker clone which was of the pac-man style maze game genre.

    Practice is - when all works, but you don't know why.
