The Retro League Podcast – Episode 423 – Rewards and Reproach (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 saw a number of people given honors or having it taken away, but we’re trying to find the line between Hair Metal and Alternative Rock. We are cautious about getting our hopes up for a Commodore 64 plug & play system, and we might have to start rating 90’s TV commercials in a scale of 1 to 5 Poochies. We’ve got a Game Boy port of some arcade classics and a winter sports game for the good old 2600 in this episode of the Retro League.

Minicraft3DS v1.6.2 (3DS Game)

Minicraft3DS is a Nintendo 3DS homebrew port of Notch’s Ludum Dare game “Minicraft“. The goal of the game is to kill the only other sentient being in the world, making sure you’ll be alone forever.

Release notes:

Features:
(Andre111’s changes)
– Real Multiplayer! Tested and working this time around, compatible with the updates in this fork.
– Character editing! Customize your character!
– “Stability”
(ElijahZAwesome’s changes)
– Sound works without ANYTHING needed on the SD card (aside from the 3dsx if your using that obviously) now, in all builds of the game. Easy install.
– Github has each file downloadable individually, seeing as you don’t need the resources folder, also I realized that the SMDH file is embedded in the 3dsx, so that’s not needed either.

It is known that sound lingers after exiting without pressing the proper exit menu item.
