Frank on Christmas Eve

Posted by atari2600land, in Pokemon Mini 24 December 2018 · 71 views

So I had a hard time working on this game for a few hours last night. I got up at midnight and went to work. Today's thing was adding a level intro screen and little tune to accompany it. Most of the time was spent figuring out why the game wouldn't start if I set the beginning screen to screen #1. I must have copied and pasted the screen 3 beginning code...


Bzzz.

Bzzz. There was an angry-looking yellowjacket caught between the sliding glass doors and couldn't get out. I tried to help him but he was too stupid to figure it out. So he's probably still stuck in there. But it gave me an idea for a screen for Frank the Fruit Fly.
 
Frank's next obstacle is a beehive. Now he must pass it without getting stung by a bee. T...


Meow.

Meow. I added a cat to get past in the game. It took a really long time to code. I tried last night and I just gave up. I tried this morning again and I had to give up again. I finally tried to do a simpler version of what I was going to do. And just like that, the original version of the cat screen was completed. I had a bad case of insomnia last night. I gues...


Frank on Pokemon Mini again

Posted by atari2600land, in Pokemon Mini, Frank the Fruit Fly 22 October 2018 · 92 views

Frank on Pokemon Mini again I've decided to return to working on Frank the Fruit Fly for the Pokemon Mini. No reason, really this time, besides looking for something to do. I read somewhere that once the ROM size reaches 64k I have to do something different to it. Right now, the ROM is only 17k, but I want to make this be a full-fledged adventure game like SMB or something with hidd...


Pokemon Party Mini 2 - September 17, 2018

Posted by atari2600land, in Pokemon Mini 17 September 2018 · 98 views

So I went back to work on my Pokemon Mini game I was working on because this guy on eBay told me he had a Pichu Bros. game he'd give me a great deal on. Except I had to pass on it because I already have it. So that got me thinking about my Pokemon Mini game I was making. Does the shading on these clouds look cool or stupid/weird? It's easy to change, so b...


Platform fun

Posted by atari2600land, in Pokemon Mini 28 July 2018 · 132 views

I decided to give another go at putting some code from my Upmonsters game into this minigame. This time it worked, for the most part. You can now continue jumping on the same platform without risking it going away and scrolling down to disappearing. I don't know, though, it seems like I've made the game too easy. I wish someone could give me feedback on P...


Turning around

Posted by atari2600land, in Pokemon Mini 27 July 2018 · 135 views

I've been trying to stay up later so I can go to sleep later so I can lead a more normal life. Yesterday I went to sleep at noon instead of about 7am. Partly due to the fact that the neighbor's dog got loose again and came up to our window a couple times, and our dog kept barking at it. And it just stood there like nothing was wrong. Idiot dog. Oh well....


Frank on Pokemon Mini

Frank on Pokemon Mini So I tried with fireworks ablaze last night, to make Frank the Fruit Fly move on Pokemon Mini, but I had to give up and go to sleep with a broken game. I finally woke up at about noon, after my daily 12 hours of sleep, and worked on it again. FINALLY got it working, but I don't know how or why, the code I wrote doesn't make any logical sense, but it works...


Pokemon Party Mini 2 - Jul. 1, 2018

Posted by atari2600land, in Pokemon Mini 01 July 2018 · 150 views

It is a hot, lonely day, so I decided to return to work on my Pokemon Mini game I was working on. I completed the Electrode minigame. I tested it a lot and I never once scored above 100 points. But I got so furious trying to pput more than one song in the game. It kept giving me a buzzing noise. So I made the song a third sound effect and that worked. Why...


Pokemon Mini programming

Posted by atari2600land, in Pokemon Mini 03 June 2018 · 148 views

I went back to work programming my Pokemon Party Mini 2 game. I added in a snail-like Pokemon for the Electrode game. Someone suggested a snail wasn't Pokemon-y enough, so I went to work creating sprites for the snail like Pokemon called a Magcargo. After a few hours I actually got him in the game and working, moving right to left like a snail would. The...
