I guess it's not like Action Replay memory dump/restore when you continue play from exact saved state?
This save is some kind of legal save from Nintendo as i guess. So what is saved? Hall Of Fame?
As I see from the code, the saved memory has fixed size and only up to 32KB which can be greatly simplified using BRAM. So i want to optimize this part.

To bring up the menu you can either die or press start to bring up the inventory screen and press up+a on controller 2 from the inventory screen. Inventory and number of deaths will be saved. The easiest way to test, though is just create a new character and then verify the name is remembered after power on.

Is it OK to assume that any game will save and restore 32KB? Just for simplification. With fixed size, it will be possible to implement saving slots later.
