You mean as in those games where the map is at a 45 degree angle? That's what I'd also like to know.

Well as you know, TNT Basic and Genesis work with square map grids, but this doesn't stop you writing your own tile rendering routine to render TNT Maps.

You can create your map in genesis, using simple from above placeholder tiles to edit your map. Then in tnt basic, write a renderer which uses the "map tile" command to get a tile number and draws an isometric tile on screen. You just have to draw from back to front to get proper ordering but it's not too difficult.

Good luck!
