Revs on the BBC Micro

To-do list

I have documented every byte of the Revs game code, but that doesn't mean that I've fully understood every byte (though it's close). Almost every single aspect of the code is explained, but there are a few issues that could benefit from another look.

This page lists all of the outstanding issues of which I am aware. These are the notes I made as I analysed the source, so they are fairly terse and might not be terribly clear.
