Conways Life Simulator (27-07-2013) (NES misc)

Conway’s Life Simulator in a variant for the NES by NovaSquirrel. Source code is available!

Release notes:

Instead of trying to see how Video Life manages to be fast, I figured I would see how fast I could make a Life simulator by just using repetitive, fast code and using unofficial opcodes. It’s pretty bare-bones so far and all you can do is move a cursor around to toggle cells and start/stop simulation, but I’m hoping to add onto it and have an option for a bigger grid because 32×32 isn’t even big enough for the Gosper glider gun. SNES mouse support would also be cool, but I would require an emulator that both supports the mouse and doesn’t choke on unofficial opcodes first.

Sir Ababol (NES Game)

Control Sir Ababol across the Monegrian fields and gather 24 ababol flowers. To be able to progress in your journey you’ll need some keys you will be able to use to open several doors to gain access to different sections. You can jump on the baddies to get rid of them, too. Be patient, think before you jump, and you’ll be successful!
