Is it possible that something as silly as the fact that western writing goes left to right is what makes almost all games start off in that direction?

OTOH, remember playing some or other martial arts game a very long time ago - in 80s where you standardly traveled right to left, but can't even remember the name of it, and maybe that was partly due to oriental writing travelling in the other direction AFAIK?


Stay well

Hi Jim,

"I sure have gotten one heck of allot of people on and off list
running to the right."

I haven't tried this new game yet, but in most classic games action
often traveled from left to right rather than right to left. This is
most likely why people are doing that.
