Holy Hell v2.2 (Final) (GBA Game)

Holy Hell is a puzzle game with shmup elements. The goal of the game is to reach the end of every level trying to chain more blocks of the same color together.

You guide a little ship powered with four different colored weapons. Every weapon can destroy only blocks of its same color, so you must switch between them to blow up everything…

Brown blocks cannot be destroyed and must be dodged…

Release notes:

Hi guys there’s online the FINAL version of HOLY HELL GBA. It probably still contain some bugs but i think it’s time to stop with this project. Thanks a lot to all gbadev community for helping me in these years.

Thanks to for the news.

Kindergarden 2011 is over. This demoparty held in Haga, Norway, is a yearly meeting of demosceners for productivity but also fun. Shake Your Lawnmower by Darklite is possibly a perfect example of how to combine both elements.

Powder (Build 116) (Game)

POWDER is a roguelike game, which is not a port of an existing roguelike. It is built around replayability and long term ergonomics, not short term learning. Author of this piece of software is Jeff Lait.

* Tower shields are large. (Claudio)
* “You cannot hide from I!” is now “You cannot hide from Me!” (B. Perry)

* The dig spell now has the side effect of spraying the excavated rock shards, damaging those around you.
* Create Pit spell is now 10 MP rather than 15.
* Blizzards fill the air with sleet and snow, not sleet and slow. Though the latter does describe their special effect nicely.
* New spell: Sandstorm
* If a god decides to flamestrike you, you now get a few turns warning to prepare yourself.
* Monsters properly check safety of squares before stepping on them.
* If trapped inside a wall without Phase or Breathess, you will suffocate. (Strange Child, Julian Agloro)

* Spells you can’t cast have (!) after them in the zap list (Aapo)
* Saving when out of disk space should no longer corrupt your last save game. (Aapo)

* Spears, knives, and daggers no longer let you equip stacks. (Aapo)
* You are only prompted to throw one spear of a stack. (Aapo)

Drunken Coders Winter Game Programming Competition 2010 (GBA misc)

Create a Nintendo DS or GBA game with a winter or holiday theme. Be it Wack-a-Santa or nuclear snowball fights with diminutive elves we want to see your wintery creations.


* Original content (Satire will be considered fair use).
* All entries must run on hardware, the hardware being one of:
o Nintendo DS
o Nintendo Gameboy Advance
o Nintendo Wii or Gamecube (seperately judged!)
* Multiple entries are encouraged but only one prize will be awarded to any individual / group.
* You are of course welcome to work in teams and split your prize how you see fit.
* No emulators, media players, or straight ports of old games please (e.g. porting quake to DS will not get you many points but porting quake, designing your own winter level and letting me walk around as Santa Claus and blast reindeer would be cool).
* Judging will be at the biased discretion of the participating judges but originality and entertainment will be the main focus (and technical splendor of course). Make me laugh and I will forgive your coder “art”.
* Entries will be awarded points and the scores averaged between all participating judges. These points will be assigned based on the following judging criteria: Competition Judging Matrix
* Submissions will be accepted at anytime and can be resubmitted and updated as necessary until the deadline

Deadline is March 21th 2011 (which ever time zone you prefer, as long as it is still March 21th somewhere in the world)!
