Nes Sprite Programming

Posted by LS_Dracon, 07 October 2017 · 110 views

Slow but improving my NES programming skills.
 
Today (well, yesterday) I did a code to create a sprite "block" (don't know how to call it).
 
This is something new to me, on Atari 2600 and Odyssey2 each sprite is a single object. On NES the sprites is a little tile, 8x8 pixels.
Naturally to display large images you need to use more than a singl...


Simpsons NES

Posted by LS_Dracon, 12 August 2017 · 262 views

I was playing Simpsons - Bart vs Space Mutants for NES and I was disappointed by the game graphics.
 
Actually none of the versions for other systems have good graphics.
 
I played the Master System version back in the day, and I never pass the first level. 
 
Anyway, back to the NES, Here's my redemptions of the sprites, using the sam...


Bubsy the Extra-Terrestrial

Posted by LS_Dracon, 20 June 2017 · 217 views

I enjoyed Bubsy for SNES back in the day.
It is a fun game with some good music (at least on first stage). Bubsy Snes OST : gameplay is not great, but had good mechanics like the glider. And this was fast,
a Sonic like game engine on Snes, without blast processing.
I had a friend who where crazy ab...


Gaping Dragon

Has been long time I don't do a pixel art.
 
Many people said my drawings are cute, even if it is not supposed to.
So I decided to create a drawing/pixel art series of ugliest monsters in cute form.
Problem my weak eyes aren't help me with this, so I'll stop on this first entry.
 
Here's Gaping Dragon from Dark Souls in his puppy form. I can see...


SMS Minimalist Cover Art - Part 2

Sega Master System Cover
Second part of my take on classic games as they where released for Master System using this peculiar Art Style.
The joke here is get a game and abstract more you can but yet keep some in-game elements recognizable, and use it as label art.
Do not take them as a serious. 


 
 


SMS Minimalist Cover Art

People say they're the worst cover art ever, and one of the reasons Sega Master System was a failure in the US.
I kind of agree, but I like them, just not take them as serious.
 
Here's my redemptions of others famous games as If they're released in this style.  :D

Hedgehog Xtreme

Recently I've decided to start another project (there aren't many to take care, only my biggest Odyssey2 project ever, and save 2 Atari 2600 games in development hell,  other side projects involving sprite drawing and many more games I want to start to code...)
Anyway I already talked about Sonic AXSX in my older blogs. It's a fan game that re-creat...


Game Gear Sprites

Posted by LS_Dracon, 28 December 2014 · 493 views

I don't put the title as Sonic 3 Game Gear to not let people think I'm working on it.
 
Just found these old sprites on my computer, years ago I was thinking about how good Sonic 3 could be in Game Gear / Master System. 
 
I wish I could code this game, but  man, too difficult to do it alone.
 
Sonic 3 is my favorite sonic game so...

Mortal Kombat HD Remix was a fan game project I was following since 3 or 4 years ago.
I'm big fan of classic fighting games, the original MK was one of my favorites, so it was going to be special.
The project goal was recreate the original MK game in high resolution using 3D graphics modeled after the original, respecting the animation, lighting and so on...


Project Space Mockup

Posted by LS_Dracon, 16 January 2014 · 653 views

Today I have a good idea for a space shooter game.
I'll not work on it, lot of others priority projects on to do list, so it's just an idea I'm throwing.
 
The game place in a solar system invaded by aliens. This means stages alternating between planets and space.
 
The aliens are displayed in rows just like Demon Attack, but each alien have uni...
