Swan Driving (06-01-2015) (WSC misc)

Swan Driving is a new WonderSwan Color “game” by Sebastian Mihai. You control a car, trying to avoid incoming traffic. Your car has a low and a high gear, for driving slowly and fast, respectively. Use UP/DOWN to move your car, and LEFT/RIGHT to select low or high gear.

Swan Driving is meant more as a tech demo, to be useful for others trying to kick-start their WonderSwan development. It features a scrolling background layer, scrolling foreground layer (for the rain), and of course, sprites for the cars.

Eight Queens (16-01-2015) (Sega 32x misc)

Eight Queens by Sebastian Mihai is an implementation of the Eight Queens Problem on Sega’s unfortunate add-on to the Genesis, the 32x. Towards the end of the Genesis era, Sega’s plan was for the 32x to tide Genesis players over, until the release of the next-gen system, the Sega Saturn. It seems that Sega preferred planet code-names for their systems, as the internal name for the 32x was Project Mars.

This Sega 32x homebrew finds all solutions, whereby no two chess queens threaten each other (as in, share a row, column, or diagonal), on a standard chess board of eight by eight squares.

Gianas Return v1.10.1 (DC Game Port)

Giana’s Return aims to be a worthy UNOFFICIAL sequel of “The Great Giana Sisters” and has been recently updated for Dreamcast to match to it’s latest v1.10 version. Ported to Dreamcast by Indiket.

Evil Swampy and his followers have stolen the magic ruby, which made it once possible for Giana and Maria to return from their dream. Many creatures are after this ruby, but does it really has power, or was it just a coincidence?As this is not bad enough, Swampy fell in love at first sight with Giana’s sister Maria and shamelessly kidnapped her. She simply has been at the wrong place at the wrong time.You will now have to take on the role of Giana and get back the magic ruby. And most important of all, save your beloved sister Maria and get home save!

Release notes:

Unfortunately we had a bug in Giana’s Return v1.10 for Dreamcast, which crashed the game after level 8. After some investigation Indiket was able to track the bug down. The version of mikmod used was a bit old and had to be updated to v3.3.7. The game works as expected again. Sorry Dreamcast users! Head over to the download section for the update and enjoy a crash free version.

Flappy Bird (29-12-2014) (GBA Game)

Jay van Hutten wrote us to let us know about this latest Gameboy Advance game. It’s a remake of Flappy Bird. Interesting here is, that the GBA is not used as usual, but check out the video on your to understand. Flappy Bird is a one button game where you need to get a bird trough pipes, while not colliding with it. As said there is only one button, so with this button you can give your bird some height, but the height is being reduced immediate again. So you need to keep clicking and keep the correct height, which isn’t easy at all.

Jet-Paco (06-01-2015) (NES Game)

Jet-Paco is a brand new NES game by Mojon Twins.

Paco Rebollez is an astronaut in charge of finding and gathering energonia crystals, a material used to power spaceships. To aid him in his hard job, he has a special suit equipped with a small thermonuclear cell in the buttocks zone which exhales an invisible gas which Paco uses to rise and fly around.

Paco‘s company has detected an old abandoned ship containing as much as 20 crystals. Paco could retire if he could gather such a number of crystals, so he decides to ignore the perils he might find inside the ship and begins the search!
