lost tomb font

description:

recreation of the pixel font from dan lee/stern electronics' lost tomb (1982).

note that the game seems to use unusually stretched 24x8 tiles, which are then stretched horizontally for a more traditional square appearance. in this recreation the characters have been normalised to a traditional 8x8 grid.

only the characters present in the game's tile set have been included.
