There is some kind of rendering problem in my Javascript/HTML5 Canvas code that I haven't been able to spot. All the assetts are there, for some reason my sprite goes invisible and nothing loads when I enter the second room except the pizza slice that is deployed when I press space bar. You can see the running (and obviously buggy game) here: http://frontandcover.com/games/rpg/canvas.php

You're calling worldmapA() but your function is called worldMapA().

Chrome dev tools will help you in situations like this.

Thank You! I changed it and it worked. I spent a ton of time trying to debug to no avail. I guess since I am used to compiled languages like C and Java I never bothered to check that since the respective compilers will tell me if I'm using something like that.

Perhaps try a slightly different workflow. If your code is transpiled you'll see these errors in the console straight away. Look at Typescript, a typed superset of JavaScript, or Babel, which allows you to write the latest version of JavaScript (es6, es7) but serve es5.
