Pineapple 64 (15-03-2016) (VB Game)

Poor Quincy. All he wanted was a pineapple. But there aren’t any. He checked the grocery store and there weren’t any there, either. Will Quincy ever be able to find a pineapple?

Insect Combat (09-06-2014-v3) (VB Game)

Insect Combat is an attempt to create a fighting game, only using insects instead of people.

Release notes:

OK, so I came back to this sooner than I thought I would. Slaying Mantis’s head chomp is now in the game. And do you know what that means? All 8 special moves are in the game now. And you know what else that means? I’m at the point where I need help with opponent AI, which I have no idea how to even think about doing. But not right now, though. I need to take a break. I spent 6 hours working on this. Started at 4am and it’s almost 10am. EDIT: Fixed a glitch that showed up on real hardware.

Insect Combat (21-05-2014) (VB Game)

Insect Combat is an attempt to create a fighting game, only using insects instead of people.

Release notes:

OK, so my monthly visit to this game only took about one hour to implement and perfect instead of a couple. I have not tested it on real hardware yet, though. I’ll do that later and report back if I see anything that needs to be fixed. Anyway, I added fire breath for Panzer Dragonfly. Seems a little ridiculous, but let’s remember this isn’t really supposed to be based in reality. The year in the game is 2047, though, so dragonflies may be able to breathe fire by then if they hurry up and start mutating that trait. And they are, after all, “dragon”flies. Since this is the special move, you have to be near the foe to do this, just like all the other special moves. To do next is the last special move, Slaying Mantis’s head chomp.

Zpace Racers (28-02-2014) (VB Game)

Zpace Racers is a space racing game by DanB. It’s playable but still considered more a technical demo which might evolve into a real game if there is enough feedback and interest from the last few Virtual Boy users out there.

Mario Combat (28-02-2014) (VB Game)

Mario Combat by thunderstruck is not yet a complete game, but already playable. Shoot various Mario enemies and gain score!

Is this good, is it bad? Possibly a matter of taste, but seeing the player in the skin of Mario and shooting his enemies just like you do in Doom or Quake… gives Mario Combat a very special aspect.
