I have gotten a lot of inspiration from classic GBA games like Zelda: The Minish Cap and Pokemon. I am continuing to build out more tiles and images to use in the map but I feel like I have a really great grip on it right now!
I have also tied in the battle screen to the Overworld using Random Monster Battles, and Enemy Unit Battles! Similar to other games, when you walk into an enemy unit’s line of sight, they attack you! When you walk through tall grass you are bound to run into perilous monsters to fight as well!
Finally I have squashed a lot of bugs in the battle screen and I have started working on scripting for this zone and will finish that next week along with a very handy menu system!
