A room editor for my colecovision game

Posted by Serguei2, in Programming Colecovision 30 August 2016 · 270 views

I made a room editor for my colecovision game.
It would be easier to design rooms.

With this editor, you can export codes to make the game like this.

Just copy and past these codes to your programs.
I noted CCI supports only strings with 256 characters. But this is still fine.
Instead writing 24 lines...

Still learning Colecovision

Posted by Serguei2, in Programming Colecovision 16 August 2016 · 264 views

It's a long way to learn how to make Colecovision games.
At least, I made few progress.

This level layout is boring for the moment but I will improve it.
I first want to make Atari 2600 games but the 2600 is not my taste because,  the joystick only has one button.
