Love Is A Battlefield v2018.04.22 (PICO-8 Game)

Love Is A Battlefield by F1Krazy combines a bullet-hell shooter with a dating sim. On the surface, it’s a game about shooting hearts at coloured circles while your date asks you if you know who Pat Benatar is for the sixth time. Deep down, though, it’s about helping others to deal with their insecurities and break down their emotional barriers.

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

NES Programming #22 - Oh, I guess I missed that word

I continued working on getting sprite 0 hit detection working. And it did finally work, but I couldn’t get it to scroll vertically after sprite 0 hit is triggered. I learned today that apparently you can’t do that like you can with the horizontal scroll. Need to research about that some more. Update: I have researched this and have a solution. Requires some optimization though

Taco v2018.04.20 (WIP) (SNES Game)

Taco for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System / Super Famicom makes even more progress.

Quote:

When we discussed last week, 1041uuu suggested placing coins on the field to give player ‘fun of collecting items’ and it looks good. Now I’m considering ‘reward’ coins which will appear after player wins all fishes.

Video: NES Programming #21 – I’m the map, I’m the map… (NES misc)

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

NES Programming #21 - I'm the map, I'm the map...
Watch this video on YouTube.

After being off for a week we did some small optimizations, messed with how levels are loaded, and then played around with sprite 0 hit detection. It was a pretty fun stream because I was mostly messing around with the NES code and not the asset tool. I need to get map building working properly in the NES asset tool so we can get more serious about building backgrounds. I also need to figure out the sprite 0 hit detection better (or, you know, just figure it out)

Alfonzo’s Arctic Adventure v2018.04.19 (WIP) (NES Game)

The author of Alfonzo’s Arctic Adventure brought another update to our attention.

Release notes:

New level clear animation! I’m pretty proud of how nicely that spiral effect turned out. Had to use some creative math to get it to work with the scrolling, but definitely worth it. #nesdev #nes #indiedev #gamedev
