Hi, I am David Vella from the small Island of Malta in Europe, approx 60 miles south of Italy.

 

My parents purchased me a TI-99/4A in 1983 when I was still 16. I dabbled with Basic and extended basic writing some slow games, and soon moved on to MSX, Amiga and later PCs making software development my job.

 

In early 2016 for some odd reason I pulled out my TI-99/4A from storage and hooked it up again. It only worked for a few minutes and broke down. To cut a long story short I purchased 3 units and several hardware such a Nano Peb, games etc...

 

In February 2016 I heard about GPL and how it bridges the gap between Basic and Assembly. I though this would be a nice challenge, to write a game using 100% GPL.

 

It took me til November 15th 2016 to finish the game, which is now available from arcade shopper on a custom UBERGROM cart thanks to James Fetzner.

 

The promo video is : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hU9SCoX-KoY

Have fun.

Congratulations, the promo video looks impressive, and I sure am getting a cartridge! Well done!

 

Thanks, tried my best. Hopefully I will have the time to do other games in 2017.
