File format

Much like the Paganitzu Graphics Format, the Paganitzu Level Format starts with a 7 byte long header. This header is followed by the actual level data, which is basically an array of 16-bit integers:

Offset Type Name Description
0 UINT16LE unknown ! Unknown
2 UINT16LE[192] tiles Array of room tiles

Each level - or "Room" as the game calls it - consists of 192 tiles (16 tiles wide, 12 tiles high). It seems as if only the lower 8 bits of the tile value are ever set.

Note: The first Level Block (Room 0) is filled with 0 values. The game starts in Room 1.
