Hey, addressing the "movement reversing" bug, I'm pretty sure this happens because you're subtracting 1 from his speed every time you eat a person. To fix this, you could subtract half (or a quarter, or a third, etc.) of his current speed each time you eat.

Thanks and yeah I think that'll do it.  I'm doing a lazily written division on the movement speed after every eat, but eventually that number becomes close to zero then negative.

I haven't looked at the source since releasing, but will do in the off time after "downhill" has wrapped.

Edit: Fixed!
