Recreation of the pixel font from Square's "Rad Racer" (aka "Highway Star", 1987) on the NES.

This font includes special characters for "black right-pointing double triangle" (U+23E9), box drawing characters (U+2500, U+2502, U+256D - U+2570), and "beamed eigth notes" (U+266B).

The original font was incomplete - this recreation includes the addition of custom characters for "J", "X" and "Z" that attempt to match the same style. Apart from these, only the characters present in the game's tile set have been included.

The numbers (except 1 and 7) looks like it's displayed on a seven segment display
