I finally got the tile loading and attributes loading properly in this stream. We have one more minor task to take care of on Thursday, but even with reloading the entire attribute memory in the NMI, we’re getting smooth scrolling (unlike before). We will start working on background collision next stream (FINALLY!). Thanks for those who watched. See you next time!

Into The Blue v2018.06.24 (Game Boy Game)

Jonas Fischbach of Retroid fame released another Game Boy Color homebrew pearl named Into the Blue. You have a vertical play field with panels raising from the bottom. The panels can be rearranged and will disappear if three (or more) matching panels are lined up in a horizontal or vertical row. The game is over if a panel touches the upper border of the play field.

This game is inspired by a Sega Genesis title named Megapanel, which is is widely forgotten today – probably because it was only released in Japan.

Beatship v2018.07.20 (PICO-8 Game)

Beatship for PICO-8 by D’oven is a test-your-luck rhythmic space shooter where shooting on beat allows you to use a powerful beam weapon but one misfire and your combo resets to 0. Do you play it safe and sit on the charge you’ve built up or risk it to restore much needed health? Leave the menu screen running for a bit to see an in game demo. The basic space shooter elements of this game’s code were made using ztiromoritz‘s fantastic Pico-8 tutorial. The rest of the game was made for Yohahi’s Floppy Jam.

In this episode I worked on trying to squeeze in my calculations for row updates and attribute updates into the NMI and after trying to chisel away at it, determined that I’d have to do that calculation in the game loop and only do the PPU updates in the NMI. That’s where we’ll pick up on Monday.
