Newcomer maxxfarras is trying to realize his dream of a Special Edition Shinobi Remake for the Master System. For now it’s a pretty simple demo which let you walk your character left and/or right.

Full release notes:

Hi sms community,

after of too much time of work and delays I decided post my little shinobi demo, (rom and source code) I was thinking about post it when I got more advanced and wait to implement the excellents collision routines that atari racoon send it to me in this project (thanks again for your help atari racoon ^. ^)i but in view that my progress is so slow and there still very hard work, I decided post it today.

My dream is some day create a shinobi special edition for the sms…maybe someday…

Im decided post it for 3 reasons:

1. Because Im proud of my advance in learning the sms so I want show it to the community with my little rom 🙂 I know that must be little thing for experts like you, but Im still proud :), and it is a proof that Im serious with this.

2. Because I was thinking that if I post source code people can give me suggestions for improve my sorce code and suggestions for enhancement.
So let me now your opinions about my rom and source!

3. The more important reason is that I was trying of create my own game engine but my advance is so slow, I only get two direction horizontal scroll and display a sprite and fliped it in software using double buffer feature (check my source).

But if some people like atari racoon, martin or other people could have an complete engine for platform games in assembler and show it to me maybe I could have now the enough knowledge for at least try to understand it and try to adapted it to my project, And because that is better for faster advance use work of others, I hope dont ask you too much.

Well I dont loose anything with ask you guys, right? 🙂

Thanks for reading my post, my english is very poor so I hope you can understand me.

PD: I dont know why but I had problems with meka, try kega or emukon, run it well in real hardware with my tototek.
