I know you can press ENTER to see some info, but I think it would be great to have the room move counter displayed all the time as has been done with the spawn clock.

I wouldn't want it up there all the time. It would mainly be distracting, unlike the spawn clock which actually helps solve the room. As a toggleable option, could be a good feature, though.

The spawn clock includes information necessary for solving the room. A move counter doesn't. Hence, they're not directly equivalent.

I don't have a strong objection to adding a move counter but I personally don't think it's necessary.

I like the idea of being able to see a move counter displayed during play; I'd also like to be able to see the move count during demos. While mainly useful when trying for high scores; it would also come in handy during "timed" rooms where knowing how many moves you've made up to a particular place can be crucial. A visible move counter would make comparing different attempts at a room much easier. Alternatively, being able to toggle on the spawn clock in any room would serve much the same function.
