Variation in room size to create a better adventure – Gauntlet of Power demo v0.0.8

Hey adventurers and new party joiners! This is a somewhat unplanned update to the demo, but I noticed there were some crashes caused by Spooky (the pink ghost) it was important to make sure those known crashes aren’t happening anymore, so here’s a “lite” update that does bring you some interesting changes.

I improved the generation of the dungeon layout, so there’s now more “splits” and dead-ends (which can be used for interesting future rooms!)

Also introduced a couple of different dungeon room sizes, and in those tight places some good bullet-heaven fights can be had (or a well placed bomb does wonders).

Finally I’ve been tinkering a bit with balancing things concerning enemy-skills, loot-drops, level-up speed, etc. So this new demo might feel a bit different!

I was planning on more features, but as mentioned, I consider this a lite-update mostly to fix some crash issues.
