Shadowfire Remake

Shadowfire is a classic Spectrum game from 1985, and I'm always surprised that no-one has remade this, since it seems perfect to me. The original game had some great ideas, plot and gameplay, but was limited by the platform. Some modern graphics would enhance it no end.

So I've taken it upon myself to do the remake, which is located here.

I've given it an RTS-style interface. It's still unfinished; at the moment you can walk around, teleport your team in, and shoot the enemies. It currently uses sprites from the original game, which weren't designed to be used in a top-down game, so if anyone could provide me with new sprites that would be good. I've got the code to rotate them to all 8 directions, so you only need to draw one copy of each!
