Vegetablets Go (Commercial) (NES Game)

Most of us possibly missed Vegetablets Go by Japanese delevoper Tulip House. Guide your bear and carry the crops (cabbage, spinach, strawberry) in the field to the harvest point! There were 10 NES and 10 FAMICOM copies and they are sold out. Keep an eye at the discussion over at NintendoAge.


There is a little chance to see more cartridges being sold in the future. Let’s hope for those, who can’t grab a copy in time, there will be a free ROM sometime in the future.

The Retro League Podcast – Episode 429 – Delicious Yoshi Bears: Nintendo Approved! (misc)

The Retro League Podcast features discussion about the latest retro gaming news, re-releases, community developments and reviews of our favorite games.

This week:

This week we decide which Quintet SNES game we want to play next and discuss the canon of a hypothetical Street Fighter 2 RPG. While we try to avoid gossip and controversial topics, we do have to relay some reports of bad behavior regarding an individual we’ve interviewed before. We’ve also got some shady projects to try to buy out Toys ‘R’ Us, but we try to lighten things up with some board games and Tiger LCD handhelds in this episode of the Retro League.

Video: NES Programming #16 – Exporting Asset Data To The NES (NES misc)

Michael Chiaramonte shows us once again how to do some NES Programming.

NES Programming #16 - Exporting asset data to the NES!


In this episode, we finally get data exporting to the NES. For now, the tool is generating code to draw the sprites and exporting the CHR data with an offset because of the pre-loaded title screen but it is working now as expected. Lots to clean up and fix but I’m very excited we have the tool “talking” to the game finally. Have a great weekend!
