20Y (GB Demo)

20 Year Tribute Demo to the Gameboy by Snorpung.

20Y is intended to be run on either the DMG, Pocket or the SGB. It’s not compatible with GBC nor GBA and will produce graphical glitches when run on the latter systems.

This demo relies heavily on the precise quirks of the hardware it’s supposed to run on, and there’s currently no emulator that is 100% accurate. So if you haven’t the means to use real hardware it’s strongly recommend to use BGB (bgb.bircd.org) as it is the only emulator to the authors knowledge that only has a few minor issues with the demo, and they are barely noticeable.

PDRoms Coding Competition v4.01 (GB misc)

It’s reality again, here comes PDROMS CODING COMPETITION v4.01 – Retro Coding Fun for Console and Handhelds!


Coding on “closed” handhelds or consoles must not be a privilege; dozens of free development kits proof the opposite. The steadily growing “homebrew scene” produces unlicensed software for devices not meant to be open for everyone.

PDRoms has always been in the homebrew scene to support the creation of new homebrew software, support programmers and artists. To show our love to the homebrew scene once again, here comes the ninth PDRoms Coding Competition.

Here is the brief data:

The topic is decided, but you have to wait till 1st April 2009 for details.

We are currently seeking for judges and sponsors – please get in touch with us if you can help or want to supply goodies which we can give out as prizes.

MazezaM v1.2 (GBC Game)

Dr. Hirudo has let us know ( http://www.pdroms.de/phpbb/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=2706 ) that he released an updated version of MazezaM.

The goal of the game looks simple – to pass from the left part of the level to the right, by sliding the walls and making corridors between them, which you can pass through. Once you get to the right part of the level, the character goes through straight corridor to the next level. The game gets harder with every level passed. But the motivation of the player to go to the next level raises as well. MazezaM is also available for other various platforms with wide range of features on every different hardware.

Release notes:

New in this version includes three new levels, fixes in the character sprite, animation fixes and optimization of the game engine.

Meow WIP (07-11-2008) (GBC Game)

Dox was working on a Gameboy DMG game for one of the previous PDRoms Coding Competitions, but the game never got done, nor did it had any big publicity as work in progress news.

But here we go… just few days ago Dox posted an update, which we will gladly quote…

Quote:

Finally, after long break i’m working again on one of my old “afterwork” projects – a Gameboy Mono (DMG) game. The gfx (made by Adam ) is almost done. Also audio part (by ne7 ) is completed. The most important element – code – is (still … ) missing. Only the basic skeleton is done.

Thanks to Dox himself for the hint!
