Explanation :

* We enable NMI by setting the 7th bit of $2000

Code:
   LDA #%10000000
   STA $2000


* In this level we are going to use another background

* The data of second background (name table) is stored in the PPU memory from $2400 to $2800 (1KB)

* Extract its data from "Super Mario Bros. (W) [!].nes" and save it as mario_bg_2.nam

* Attach its data to the source code

Code:
bg_nam_2:
  .incbin "mario_bg_2.nam"


* With ;Name table + Attribute 2 codes we transfer the second background data to PPU memory (from $2400 to $2800)

* At first this background is outside of screen and is not visible

* We have to scroll the screen to show the second background

* By scrolling the background actually we are updating the graphic on screen, right? So we have to do it in vBlank period

* So we have to detect when vblank happens

Code:
NMI:
   INC NMI_index
   RTI


* We use a variable, each time vblank happens this variable increase

Code:
vblank_wait:
   LDA NMI_index
not_yet:
   CMP NMI_index
   BEQ not_yet
   RTS 


* With this code we check the variable, we keep looping until it changes which shows a vblank period just has happened

* Need more info about this method? then read this : NMI

* By using JSR ... RTS we make a subroutine. JSR jumps to a label, runs a block of code until it finds RTS then it goes back to its original code

* This loops is infinite and we call it game engine. Here it is very simple.

Code:
;Infinite loop
Forever:

;Move background
   JSR vblank_wait
   INC bg_X_pos
   LDA bg_X_pos
   STA $2005
   LDA #$00
   STA $2005

   JMP Forever


* Each time it waits for a new vblank period to start.

* Then X coordinate increase by one, so first background moves one pixel to left and the second background appears from right side of screen

Image

* With Vertical Mirroring we can scroll the background horizontally

* With Horizontal Mirroring we can scroll the background vertically

* Need more info? then read this : PPU scrolling

Scroll the screen backward or from up to down.
