Frank and snow (part 2)

Posted by atari2600land, in Frank the Fruit Fly 22 January 2019 · 21 views

Frank and snow (part 2) On the left is Frank. On the right is snow. I don't know of any other way to draw snow except for a blob. And I am not sure if the snow falling thing is going to stay in the game or not. I just can't make it be random enough. I tried using user input as a way to try and make it random, but the results were it was somewhat predictable. But at least I made...


Frank and snow

Posted by atari2600land, in Pokemon Mini, Frank the Fruit Fly 21 January 2019 · 37 views

Time once again to work on Frank the Fruit Fly. I was having problems again, but they're solved. The problems were related to me switching to a new level: Level 2. First, the music didn't play. So I changed the way the variable value was gotten, and that did it. Each little tune has a value for a certain variable called bgm_select. So then I tried it and...


Read, issue 21.

Posted by atari2600land, in Celery comic book 19 January 2019 · 47 views

I made a website for the celery comic book . It is lovely. I've also posted issue 21, and will post issue 27 when I'm done with it. I'll try to write legibly like I did in this issue. Alien Invasion came, and the stupid thing is broken. It won't work. Why can't people TEST their games before selling them? Argh! At least the other, non-Channel-F game I got...


Cold celery.

Posted by atari2600land, in Celery comic book 18 January 2019 · 39 views

So I have decided to make my comic book about celery again. I thought I had a webpage for it, but I don't. Anyway, something new I tried is to make the cover out of real items. This was employed by the Cartoon Network (out of all channels) shows "Amazing World of Gumball" and the short-lived "The Brak Show". I don't really watch CN much, even [adult swim]...


Return of the cranberry

Posted by atari2600land, in channel f 17 January 2019 · 44 views

Something struck me, urged me to continue work on Quest of the Cranberry for the Channel F. Last September, I deemed it too ambitious and gave up. But there was just something that was telling me, "no, this isn't as ambitious as Adventure, and that was made." Albeit for the 2600, but still. I tried to make a heart that gains back health upon touching it,...


Alien Invasion

Posted by atari2600land, in channel f 16 January 2019 · 59 views

An alien invasion will be happening at my house soon. So I just happened to be on eBay at the right time. Earlier there was also Video Poker, which I would have gotten as well, but I clicked on it and it said it was "out of stock." There was only one and someone else must have bought it, which I don't blame them because it was only $40. So I bought the ot...


Making another 2k game

Posted by atari2600land, 15 January 2019 · 68 views

Almost finished with another game. I am about to break the 2k barrier, which is good because I don't know of anything else I can add or change to it. Just got finished typing out the instructions for it. I even have a publisher for it, so don't ask to do so. So what is the game? Right now I'd like to keep it a secret because not everything is finalized (l...


Options

Posted by atari2600land, in Game Boy development 14 January 2019 · 60 views

Options I made an options screen in Fast Food for Game Boy. You can turn off the in-game music (the sound effects still play), and start on a different level. The levels progress as you get deeper in the game, as more pickles and faster food come by. With this option you can start at the highest level and have these enabled at the start of each game. The worst pa...


Bicycle Casino

Posted by atari2600land, in Chris reviews X-Box games 12 January 2019 · 71 views

Bicycle Casino So I got Bicycle Casino. I thought it was a weird name. Do you ride a bicycle to the casino? (I know, Bicycle is a brand of playing cards, but that's an odd name for a playing card company too. So is Nintendo.) Anyway, I took it for a spin. Lady Luck was on my side in the Video Poker segment. I kept getting lots of 2 pairs. I like this casino game better...


the second return of Frank the Fruit Fly on Game Gear

Posted by atari2600land, in Frank the Fruit Fly 11 January 2019 · 58 views

the second return of Frank the Fruit Fly on Game Gear So I've decided to make Frank the Fruit Fly on the Game Gear again. This time it will closely resemble the Pokemon Mini version. What inspired me to do this was wishing it was in color. Then I thought "Hey! The Game Gear has color! I should go back and do the Pokemon Mini version on the Game Gear!" This doesn't mean I won't work on the Pokemon Mini versio...
