In this stream, I finished up the code for handling state transitions, cleaned up code with regards to waiting for the PPU appropriately, finished the simple compress title screen, and talked about what kind of tool I’d like to make for the game and for NES programming in general.

School Rush v2017.12.30 (NDS Game)

Belgian developer Pype still gives love to his long term Nintendo DS homebrew game project School Rush.

Help Bilou, a blue, ball-shaped explorer to stop an evil gauge haunting a school. You can jump and grab things but also stomp some monsters. Your goal is to reach the right of each level before you’re caught by the ever-raising ink. You’ll need to be quick, too. Use (R) or double-tap in left/right directions as if you were a pink, living vacuum cleaner.
