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 (early) commercial Game Boy titles, using only a few very basic development tools. The result is a Breakout clone that can be downloaded here:

RETROID is similar to Alleyway but adds some features from Arkanoid and other games to it (such as bonus items, better graphics, in-game music, boss battle etc.). The game was optimized for the "real" Game Boy hardware but can of course also be played via emulator. If you'd like to emulate, I suggest using BGB. Some other emulators tend to e.g. not play the sound correctly.

Here are some screenshots:

Have fun and enjoy the show!

I like the music - the covers are all very pleasing. Any possibility we might get a GBS file for the soundtrack?

The physics of collisions are a bit off, though.

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

This is good. I agree with lidnariq the physics could be improve a bit though.

I love the old retro look of this game and the soundtrack is excellent. But yeah the physics aren't perfect. Do you guys know any other games that have this kind of look?
