I finally decided to announce something that I have been working on: Heofonfīr. (O. E. for Heaven Fire) Genre: Space Shooter (Vertical) Levels: 5 I was thinking about Sting's Baroque spinoff called Baroque Shooting, and decided to do something similar for the 7800. So, I decided to re-read Steve Engelhart's 7800Basic tutorials, and started to code. However, I hit numerous roadblocks during the process, such as figuring out how to do vertical scrolling, enemies that attack, power-ups, bosses, endings, and other things not covered in the 7800 Basic tutorial. To prove that I am not pulling people's chains, I'll even post some of my graphics. Update: Functioning ROM file can be found in the last two posts. After loading it up in your favorite emulator, push fire and try it out. Update 02: The latest version of the ROM can be found in the latest post.
So, I made a game for the Vectrex some time ago called 'Circus Vectrex' that was supposed to be just a tongue-in-cheek take on the classic 'Circus Atari' game. At one point I was thinking about polishing this game off, as it was, and releasing it as a cartridge. I never did get around to it as the cost was a bit high for me at the time, and the game had a bit too much drift on some of the testers Vectrex. Although it seemed fine on mine? Since then I've had a few people tell me I should make the start jump and in-game jump mechanic more like the Atari game and release it. So I've come to ask for, and would appreciate, some honest answers from people who are likely to know both systems. Do you think this game is good enough / worth attempting to convert so it plays the same as the 'Circus Atari' game? I've added a short video (sorry no sound, my bad) and an online playable link below so you can get an idea of the game. https://drsnuggles.github.io/jsvecx/?rom=Circus Or have a look on my (old) blog: http://garrysgamingblog.blogspot.com/p/programming-projects.html Thing is I now have 10 spare eproms to do this with, as I've decided to use a writable chip with the full version of my 'Trapped' proof of concept game. (If it ever gets done) So do you honestly think it's a worthwhile project or not (I've more projects than time just now ) and your opinion would be welcome.
Working on the graphics for a future Electric Adventures release for the MSX, Spectravideo and ColecoVision, a port of Kangaroo in the arcades. Quite a decent multi-screen platform game, that I always enjoyed back in the day. Different aspect ratio, so the layout can't be perfect, but I think this captures the feel of the game so far. More detail to be added to the greenery sections and of course sprites for our main player character, little Joey and Naughty Monkeys to follow. Original arcade screen for reference: More updates to follow...
