To ensure a halved-square font, any accented glyphs from Mandrill (my monospaced, lanky, much-of-unicode font) that went above a capital A's peak were cut, but many lower-case accented glyphs stayed in.  Since this is meant for a text-heavy game genre where legibility at small size is important, all of Latin Extended Additional was cut -- it was just too hard to read at small sizes, and I doubt it would be very useful in a roguelike or similar text-based game that needs halved-square glyphs.  This looks pretty good with anti-aliasing, but the preview may be funny because it uses the old 2x2 filter.  It's called Zodiac Narrow because of the 6x12 pixels, 12 signs of the Zodiac, more Narrow than Zodiac Square.With%206x12%20pixels%20at%20size%206%2F8%20font%2C%20this%20variant%20of%20Zodiac%20Square%20will%20fit%20two%20characters%20in%20one%2012x12%20square.%20%20To%20ensure%20a%20halved-square%20font%2C%20any%20accented%20glyphs%20from%20Mandrill%20%28my%20monospaced%2C%20lanky%2C%20much-of-unicode%20font%29%20that%20went%20above%20a%20capital%20A%27s%20peak%20were%20cut%2C%20but%20many%20lower-case%20accented%20glyphs%20stayed%20in.%20%20Since%20this%20is%20meant%20for%20a%20text-heavy%20game%20genre%20where%20legibility%20at%20small%20size%20is%20important%2C%20all%20of%20Latin%20Extended%20Additional%20was%20cut%20--%20it%20was%20just%20too%20hard%20to%20read%20at%20small%20sizes%2C%20and%20I%20doubt%20it%20would%20be%20very%20useful%20in%20a%20roguelike%20or%20similar%20text-based%20game%20that%20needs%20halved-square%20glyphs.%20%20This%20looks%20pretty%20good%20with%20anti-aliasing%2C%20but%20the%20preview%20may%20be%20funny%20because%20it%20uses%20the%20old%202x2%20filter.%20%20It%27s%20called%20Zodiac%20Narrow%20because%20of%20the%206x12%20pixels%2C%2012%20signs%20of%20the%20Zodiac%2C%20more%20Narrow%20than%20Zodiac%20Square.

This is Monology, another monospaced font, but it has just one square block, in a monologue of sorts with itself.  Really this just means that this font is pixel-perfect and will not have anti-aliasing at the correct size (16 or 12 pt, depending on the program).  It should be 6x14 pixels at the largest, including the box drawing characters and block/shading elements.  There are also some arrows and the ever present copyright, registered, and trademark signs.  This should be more useful than the original Monkey for certain games, but I would still recommend Monkey over Monology for day-to-day programming/office usage as it is easier on the eyes.Another%20clone%20of%20my%20lanky%2C%20monospaced%20font%2C%20Monkey%21%20%20This%20is%20Monology%2C%20another%20monospaced%20font%2C%20but%20it%20has%20just%20one%20square%20block%2C%20in%20a%20monologue%20of%20sorts%20with%20itself.%20%20Really%20this%20just%20means%20that%20this%20font%20is%20pixel-perfect%20and%20will%20not%20have%20anti-aliasing%20at%20the%20correct%20size%20%2816%20or%2012%20pt%2C%20depending%20on%20the%20program%29.%20%20It%20should%20be%206x14%20pixels%20at%20the%20largest%2C%20including%20the%20box%20drawing%20characters%20and%20block%2Fshading%20elements.%20%20There%20are%20also%20some%20arrows%20and%20the%20ever%20present%20copyright%2C%20registered%2C%20and%20trademark%20signs.%20%20This%20should%20be%20more%20useful%20than%20the%20original%20Monkey%20for%20certain%20games%2C%20but%20I%20would%20still%20recommend%20Monkey%20over%20Monology%20for%20day-to-day%20programming%2Foffice%20usage%20as%20it%20is%20easier%20on%20the%20eyes.

23 downloads23%20downloads23248 glyphs248%20glyphs248A favorite of 2 usersA%20favorite%20of%202%20users2This clone of Monkey (my monospace lanky font) still has one width (6 blocks), but isn't so lanky. It is 12 blocks tall; all letters are at most 8 above the baseline and at most 3 below, but the Unicode box drawing characters are one block taller.  Since all the ascenders got a little lower, I'm calling this one Low Rider.  The fact that the width of every glyph is half of its height could be handy for grid displays in certain text-based applications.  Text-mode programs can also take advantage of the box drawing characters.  This font uses the FontStruct 2x2 filter method with plenty of composite and stacked bricks, which lets the curves look good at large sizes while remaining sharp on the screen at normal sizes.This%20clone%20of%20Monkey%20%28my%20monospace%20lanky%20font%29%20still%20has%20one%20width%20%286%20blocks%29%2C%20but%20isn%27t%20so%20lanky.%20It%20is%2012%20blocks%20tall%3B%20all%20letters%20are%20at%20most%208%20above%20the%20baseline%20and%20at%20most%203%20below%2C%20but%20the%20Unicode%20box%20drawing%20characters%20are%20one%20block%20taller.%20%20Since%20all%20the%20ascenders%20got%20a%20little%20lower%2C%20I%27m%20calling%20this%20one%20Low%20Rider.%20%20The%20fact%20that%20the%20width%20of%20every%20glyph%20is%20half%20of%20its%20height%20could%20be%20handy%20for%20grid%20displays%20in%20certain%20text-based%20applications.%20%20Text-mode%20programs%20can%20also%20take%20advantage%20of%20the%20box%20drawing%20characters.%20%20This%20font%20uses%20the%20FontStruct%202x2%20filter%20method%20with%20plenty%20of%20composite%20and%20stacked%20bricks%2C%20which%20lets%20the%20curves%20look%20good%20at%20large%20sizes%20while%20remaining%20sharp%20on%20the%20screen%20at%20normal%20sizes.

Tall, sturdy, and 6 px wide (14 px line-height), most things work here, and it should be usable for programmers.  Making diagonals appear to have a consistent width was tricky, so some of the letters look a little weird (lower-case z, upper-case K...), but in my opinion it isn't enough to hamper readability.
