Tumulus (r24) (A2600 Game)

In Tumulus by yllawwally you are an adventurer, out to stop the fiends coming from Tumulus. This game is inspired by Golden Axe.

Release notes:

Sorry about the long wait, been pretty busy for a while. Did a whole bunch of internal changes. The player won’t notice most of them. However they are required to get the larger bosses on the screen. A new crazy bug was added, when you touch the mummy, you’re character sprite is garbled. It can be fixed by attacking a different creature.

Muncher (03-09-2013) (Final) (A2600 Game)

Since Wickeycolumbus sold all copies of Muncher he decided to release the final ROM to the public. You play as a yellow square and your goal is to “eat” the red squares while avoiding aliens.

Releasing the ROM of a commercial/limited edition cart release once everything is sold out is a smart move other developers should be thinking about 🙂

Tumulus (r23) (A2600 Game)

In Tumulus by yllawwally you are an adventurer, out to stop the fiends coming from Tumulus. This game is inspired by Golden Axe.

Release notes:

Primarily bug fixes. Screen no longer adds extra line if touching an enemy or for moving left and swinging sword. Having trouble finding the cycles to do hit calcs, with the boss stuff added in. I think I can optimize a little more. Will need to move around all Enemies. Added the ability to actually specify each enemie’s life. Before it was based on enemy number, which is why it took too many hits to kill will o wisp.
