simple movement in ascii-based rpg

hello list,

i wrote this little "rpg" (it's very bad, i know. i don't have much
coding experience).
now i would like to add the methods for moving the "p" (player) on the
map (see game.player).
i just cannot find out how i could do this. i think even the entire
design is wrong (is it good to have the player class _in_ the game
class? i thought this would be a good idea, because a "player" lives in
a "game") and: is the way i handle the mapfile appropriate for further
development, or not?

my main problem is to build a solid way to move the p(layer) and to 
connect this visual output with the game logic.

any opinions?

    g.printPlayerStartPoint()
    p.moveUp()


### eof ###

a sample mapfile is attached. the "#"'s are walls and the "o"'s is
floor. "p" is the player.

(sorry for my terrible english and the german comments in the sources)

many thx in advance,
