GoSub (14-07-2009) (VB Game)

atari2600land goes VirtualBoy!

GoSub and GoSub 2 are well known from the Atari 2600 – and now GoSub hits the VirtualBoy! Collect treasures with your underground boat in a maze!

Release notes:

In case you didn’t know, I’m working on GoSub, this time for the Virtual Boy. I’m going to make it 2MB, hopefully room for 32 mazes. I don’t know how to add sound, or flip the sprite so it’s facing the right way, but here it is so far. 17 mazes. To get a level select screen, press SELECT at the title screen, or start at level 1 by pressing START. You can play this using the RealityBoy emulator, or use FlashBoy. If you decide to use FlashBoy, tell me how it runs on it.

BLOX 2 (Demo) (Virtual Boy Game)

KR155E released a demo of his game BLOX 2, it’s a Sokoban style puzzle game.

Quote:

I have release a demo version of my current Virtual Boy homebrew project BLOX 2, a Sokoban style puzzle game. Since changing to the latest gccVB version about 2 months ago, the game refused to run on hardware and I hadn’t touched it since then. So I think it’s a good idea to share the last build from before the change in form of a demo version. Features of the demo:

– 16 MBit ROM
– 3D Graphics
– Over 1500 Levels in 29 Level Sets by various homebrew level authors
– Undo Functionality
– Includes “Multiblox” levels (two players to solve a level, each controlled by a D-Pad)
– Includes huge levels up to 29×32 blocks in Mini Mode
– Includes 6 languages: English, German, Spanish, Swedish, French and Italian
– Save Battery support to save options, finished levels etc

Any feedback about the demo is appreciated and will help to release a polished final version.

Thanks to KR155E for the news!
