Driar (26-02-2012) (NES Game)

Driar is a platform-game for the Nintendo Entertainment System/Famicom written by Stefan Adolfsson and David Eriksson. Rickard Nilsson helped out in early development. The game is designed for PAL (50Hz) systems, but works well on NTSC (60Hz) systems as well. The game and music will however play a bit faster on a NTSC system.

Take control of Driar and collect all the stars on each level to progress. You can walk around the screen (if you exit the screen on the right side you will reappear on the left side) – remember this and use this to your advantage. There are 38 levels in total.

Assimilate (WIP) (NES Game)

John White / Nessylum Games has let us know, that his NES game Assimilate is ready for pre-order on 16th February 2012.

In Assimilate you control an alien space ship and your main task is to kidnap humans, while the forces of the earth try to stop you from that.

Now what is so special, that John got me to write about his commercial NES game. It’s the public promise, that he will release the almost full game, a half year after official release as ROM image. Even if this will take one year, it’s a very smart move.

Nighttime Bastards (10-11-2011) (NES Game)

Nighttime Bastards is a work-in-progress game for NES by picccca, a developer from Finland. We first wrote about this game a half year ago, now the whole engine has been rewritten. It’s still far from being complete, but you may want to follow the current status. There is also a discussion on NESdev going on.

Release notes:

The new improved game engine is finally taking shape, this time I’m showing the work in progress OAM cycling or sprite flickering as it’s also known as.
