Kirby 2600

Recommended Posts

If you've read my blog yesterday, you've noticed that I've been working on a Kirby game. This is the page for its updates. I'm going to change the name of the game as well as the color of the character when I'm done to differentiate it from Kirby when I'm finished, but I'm leaving it alone for now. All I have left for 4k is a title screen song and then it will be moved to 8k. Good thing I now have the main in-level engine mostly done. I've added some in-game music for the first level which has 3 screens so far.

Today's daily update. I had to make it 16k, but only less than half of that is used so far. I'd like to make this a 64k cart, but bB won't let me, so until it does I can only make it 32k. Well, anyway, there's 8 screens now, with the 8th repeating over and over again. There's now death (so falling down a hole will mean you'll die and can't walk in the clouds any more.) I've added an instruction pdf document with this zip file, which also has the binary and bB file.

This is great work. I loved this game on the NES and you have done a great job with this. The music is nice also. Keep up the good work I can't wait to play the finished game.

when you are moving to the next screen, it looks like you would have to jump, because screen columns are the same colour as a background. the move between screens is weird because of that.

I added something major: Kirby can fly, just like in the NES version! To make him do this, press up while you're jumping up. Kirby will then turn into a ball-like creature, and keep him aloft by pressing up continuously. When you want to land, press down until you hit a ledge or the ground. Also, the game now has 11 screens, the eleventh one just repeats over and over for now.

Perfected the flying code. You can now press up while falling and it will switch to floating. Press up to gain altitude, otherwise, you'll gradually sink. Also added a couple new screens.

Flying is much better now.

I was testing it out and it hung up on the "saw screen" and Kirby just turned into a white ball and hung in the air. Dunno what caused that. Lookin good though.
