I used the C-fighter demo for reference, started on the lynx programming for dummies by sage, a list of 65C02 instructions, and lots of questions posted on this board!

is this real? or are you messing with our headz?


Apparently it is, seeing that it is running on my lynx here-

There wont be as many fusion possiblities and abilities as in Air Zonk, but it'll still have the same basic gameplay (set on spicy mode for comparison to AZ) but, mehPosted Image tis a good excuse to play my lynx rather than the TurboExpress I resurrected.

I bought it dead for 50 USD, then resurected it =P How else?

After Zonik, I'm gonna work on some enhanced GB and GG ports so I dont know about more turbo ports, then off to Tails Alliance.

i got my turbo express back in 1996/7 from telegames when they were
cheap,reptone.i've picked up lots of tg-16 games cheap as used ones.i
picked up a "turbovision" tv tuner this year pretty reasonably in aug.i find
stuff that way now and then.the turbo express is a pretty nice unit in some
ways.i also like my sega nomad for genesis games to go along with me.i'm
still a lynxer at heart though.
also,i like to take my game gear and the tv tuner along on the go.it has a
pretty nice picture when i hook it up to cable or my vcr with the av cable
i have for it.i also use this cable with my turbovision tuner--not as big a
picture on the turbo though.they both give pretty good picture quality on
the antenna too.i can pick up several stations in my area--fox and etc.i
just wish they would have had a tuner for the lynx! i wish wizztronics would release their unit and just get it over with too!!--the lynxer

You use option 2 to call a partner, it costs 50 rings

But I'm such a lazy artist, and MS-Paint is starting to burn my eyes so haven't done the art for the fusion sequece yet.

I really have no idea when It'll be ready, I'm just trying to get it done at my own pace so things won't be rushed out the door full of bugs. Plus, the game's being released alongside something else.....

and packaging of this when the time comes for you.let me know.have do-
ne this several times for others in the past.we are real easy to work with
on stuff like this.we even pay rather good royalties to the folks behind the

Not two lynx games, look at the pics I posted and maybe you'll see ;) ..... As for publishing & packaging, as sage said awhile ago, not good to plan ahead to that but I'm probably gonna need help in the publishing area, (although I would prefer to do the art & design for the packaging myself).

And thanks for the complements guys, I get encouraged to keep going each time time :wink:

Tis very real my friend, but the release may take awhile :P

Here's a new pic of the bonus round in dev.

Also, I am moving over to software collisions, I'm eating up all of suzy's time with my sprites, so I figured I'll try to stress the 65C02, tis not doing much right now anyway =P So the collisions should have just a bit of error to them, like in Air Zonk.[/img]
