Witchbeat (PICO-8 Game)

Witchbeat is a PICO-8 game by dragonxvi.

The illustrious Rhythm Witch Anemone Reawolf has a problem – her underground storeroom is in complete disarray and the Storemaster’s nowhere to be seen. Can you navigate a trap-filled dungeon, rescue the odd fairy and uncover the true mastermind behind all this chaos?!

Witchbeat fuses rhythm-game mechanics with good ol’ dungeon delving. Get close (but not too close!) to your enemy and attack in time with the beat. Solve puzzles, find keys, beat up blobs and generally faff about.

NES Programming #24 - Interrupting the interrupter
Watch this video on YouTube.


In this episode I got the MMC3 IRQ working once I realized the I had to re-enable interrupts on the CPU. After that, we saw what happened as you mess with the nametables while scrolling and experimented with one solution to vertical scrolling and scanline counting. I need to some more research to see how other games do this. Thanks for watching and see you next stream!
