I just finished up a side-scroller/platformer called “Sand Castles” – I wanted to share a copy if anyone’s interested. Here’s a quick run-down…

  • Shoot to defeat monsters to clear each round (if you spend to much time in a level, you’ll get chased by the “reaper”)
  • Health bar is to the bottom-right, lives to the bottom left
  • Left difficulty switch to control game difficulty (b=longer time before reaper, health restored each level)
  • Right difficulty switch turns music on/off.
  • Works with SEGA Genesis controllers with multiple buttons supported: B to shoot, C to jump – of course it also works with the 2600 joystick, where “up” jumps.
  • DPC+ kernel (tested in Stella, and Harmony cartridge)

Based on the feedback I got with Bit Quest, I thought it’d be cool to make a proper manual for the game, so I’ve include that as well.

In any case, check it out. Hope you enjoy it!

The main sprite is very cute.  There is quite a bit of variety in the levels, which keeps my interest.

Just curious - what emulator were you using on your phone? Thanks for trying the game out!

Finally got a chance to play.  Love the main character sprite!  Jumping can be a little unforgiving in spots leading to some cheap deaths, but overall the game play is fun.  I like the variety of enemies and play fields.  Kind of surprised to see it has an end.  Can you keep playing past the end, i.e. repeat with higher difficulty?
