Gorf (Beta 5) (GBA Game)

Jess Ragan is working on a Gameboy Advance version of the game Gorf.

From Wikipedia ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gorf ):

Gorf is an arcade game released in 1981 by Midway Mfg., whose name was advertised as an acronym for “Galactic Orbiting Robot Force”. It is a multiple-mission fixed shooter with five distinct modes of play, essentially making it five games in one. It is well-known for its use of synthesized speech, a new feature at the time.

Gorf’s objective is simply to destroy all enemies. The player controls a spaceship that can move slowly left, right, up and down.

Jess would love to recieve feedback, so please get back on him – this way he can make the game even better and you’ll have updated versions to enjoy!

Readme.txt:

Presented for your enjoyment is the fifth GORF beta. It was a whole lot of work, but then again, it was a whole lot of worth it. Included in this release is a sleek title screen, along with the art gallery I’ve been promising since the last of forever. This took a while to finish, but I’m proud of the results… aside from the occasional hiccup it’s extremely well put together, looking almost like a professional quality GameBoy Advance release. And to think, this entire game was written in BASIC! I’m continually amazed at the versatility of this compiler… I would never have gotten this kind of performance out of Quick BASIC thirteen years ago. Working on this game has also given me a whole new appreciation for the GameBoy Advance. I loved it as a gamer before, and now I love it as a programmer too!

Anyway, you’re probably wondering how the art gallery works, so here’s the scoop. After you select it from the main menu, just press left and right on the D-pad to cycle through the twenty-five available images. Since many of the pictures are in portrait or “tate” format, you can also flip the system sideways and use up and down to leaf through the screen shots, box artwork, and promotional materials. This works especially well with the GameBoy Micro. If you want to get a full view of any image, just hold down one of the shoulder buttons to make the guide arrows vanish. Finally, to read a brief description of the image being currently viewed, just tap the A button. A text bar will slide in from the bottom of the screen. Press A again and it slides back out. When you’re finished with the gallery, press either B or Start to return to the title screen.

Guess that about does it for this update! Stay tuned for the options screen and a special mode called the Mission Matrix, which should help bring the classic game of GORF into the modern age of achievements, trophies, and… uh, whatever the Wii does to reward gamers. (Lately, that hasn’t been much. Ahem.)

Holy Hell (Beta 1) (GBA Game)

genecyst has passed by on the PDRoms webboard to let us know about his game “Holy Hell”.

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…

Super Bug Advance v1.2 (GBA Single Game Emu)

James Jacobs of Amigan Software released a port of a subset of the Ami/WinArcadia V11.71 emulator to the Nintendo Game Boy Advance platform, for the purpose of emulating the Super Bug game.

The emulator has been optimized for speed and size. The emulation is not as comprehensive as that provided by Ami/WinArcadia, but everything needed for perfect emulation of the Super Bug game is present (except the noise generator). Features could be added back in from Ami/WinArcadia if desired, to enable support of other games. Some further optimizations are possible; however, the game already runs at full speed.

The program was written using HAM 2.8.0 and Visual HAM 2.4.2. Source code is included.

Changes:

Noise generator emulation.
Miscellaneous improvements and bug fixes.
