Re: New Game for the Game Boy: INTO THE BLUE

You should always expect people to take your game to much a further extent than you can mange yourself! :) If they do that, it's only a sign of good game design. Thanks - and yes, I agree! If anyone is curious, here is a render of the cartridge design, and a photograph of the programmer and a proto...

Re: New Game for the Game Boy: INTO THE BLUE

I think it should be fixed so that the scores are not always a multiple of ten, by dividing the existing scores by ten, so that more points will fit on the display at once, because currently it is not enough. Seriously? :P In endless hours of bug-testing, I managed to max out the score counter only...

Re: New Game for the Game Boy: INTO THE BLUE

It's a shame there's no real support for homebrew gameboy cartridges (to be sold) over the 32kb limit. I'm currently waiting for an old 32kb gameboy color game I made a while ago to be put onto cartridge, although if I hear of anyone with MBC support I'll let you know if you're interested of course...

Re: New Game for the Game Boy: INTO THE BLUE

Really smooth looking game, I always appreciate the work going into that kind of stuff. However, it appears to me a lot of the symbols are ripped pretty much straight from Mario and Kirby games, is that right? At least they look awfully familiar in the way they are drawn. I think this is a game tha...

Is there a high score menu?
Hope that you like it! :D

Sorry, but there is no high score menu. You can check your final score on the game over screen but the game doesn't save it.

Re: New Game for the Game Boy: INTO THE BLUE

I wasn't really thinking about compression. I was just observing that it tentatively looks like there's actually only 64K of data in the eight 16K banks. Banks #7 and 8 are all 0, the last 8187 bytes of bank #6 is a copy of the last 8187 bytes of bank #5, the last 2087 bytes of bank #5 are a copy o...

Re: New Game for the Game Boy: INTO THE BLUE

Thanks lidnariq! :D Out of curiosity, when I look at the ROM, I see that banks 2-5 each contain a copy of a random subset of the previous bank. Do you think it might be possible to pack this into a 64K ROM instead of a 128K ROM? The complete code of the game fits in banks 1 and 2. Banks 2 to 5 conta...

New Game for the Game Boy: INTO THE BLUE

Hi! I'd like to show you INTO THE BLUE, a new game I just released. It's for the Game Boy, but I hope it is still not a problem to post it in this section. The goal of my project was to create a game that looks and feels like a commercial game from back in the day. The result is a puzzle game that p...

Thanks for playing my game. :wink: But sorry, I have no tool that would turn the sound into a GBS file.

RETROID - A New Game Boy Game

Hi! Maybe RETROID, a Game Boy project I've just released, is of interest to you. I hope it is ok to post a Game Boy project it in this section. If it isn't, please accept my apologies and move it to the correct section. My goal was to create a Game Boy game that meets the technical standards of (ear...
