This is a great tutorial series! I have a question, do you know how to reduce screen flickering in the program? Everytime I move the character the screen flickers.

Hi Connor! I haven't experienced any flicker myself, it always runs smoothly. Perhaps it has to do with the environment you are running it. What OS, and terminal are you using? If you are using Linux, maybe try a different terminal emulator, and make sure to play it with the terminal window maximized, if the window is too small for the size of the map that can cause visual glitches.

I use the Windows OS and installed Windows Subsystem for Linux to run ncurses on my computer. I might try and use a different terminal emulator and see if that helps. Thanks for your help! By the way, you should consider making more parts to the series like adding monsters or something, that would be awesome.
