"Bob is stuck in the orange packaging plant where the packing machine has gone out of control and is spitting out oranges all over the place! Why? Some idiot poured radioactive goop all over it and so the oranges turned radioactive! So, locked into the room, Bob must get 500 points to beat the Orange-O-Matic, or else he's toast, which would go good with oranges for a nutritious breakfast."

Oranges is a game I'm making for the Game Boy. And I'd like to know your feedback on the game so far. You can get the latest build here

Play it on your emulator or on an Everdrive and let me know what you think.

I have begun work on a Game Gear version. All I have is this screenshot, though:

Oranges is finished. I've begun work on a second Game Boy game, this time an adventure game called "Frank the Fruit Fly." You can get the latest build of it here.

Worked on the Game Gear version some more today. I finally got collision detection in. It resulted in a different graphics setup than the Game Boy version, but it works.

Dusted off the ol' Game Gear and worked on this again. I began work on power-ups. The first one is now in, it's the syrup bottle which will slow down the oranges. Bob's shirt will turn blue, then orange when the oranges were about to go back to their normal speed. Believe it or not, that took a long time to do because I couldn't get it to work but now it does. As you can see, I changed the colors around so it wouldn't create faint lines on a real Game Gear.

I went back to work on Oranges for the Game Boy. I have also started a new Game Boy project called "Ten Pest." (that's supposed to be a rocket in the picture.) It will be sort of like "Tempest." I plan to have ten different kinds of UFOs to shoot at, hence the name. All I have done is a title screen, worked on music this morning.

It has been a while. 7 months. But I've decided to continue work on the space game again. If you have a Game Boy everdrive or emulator, play it and let me know how I'm doing with it.
