Hey all, first time posting
I made a little NES game as part of a hacking conference challenge - users got a ".bin" file and had to figure out it was a NES rom, run it, figure out the clue about a code being a Game Genie (and/or figure out what a Game Genie is and how to enter the code), before submitting their code to solve the challenge (each user got a unique ".bin" file with a unique code).
People seemed to enjoy it and it got really good feedback. It even has a Konami code built in.
I was able to make something far better than I had initially planned, thanks to dougeff/nesdoug.com's tutorials and free code, and even answering questions via e-mail. I'm sure I did a lot wrong, but I learnt a whole lot in the process (this is my first game - on any platform, never mind just NES), so just wanted to share it + the code, and say a huge thanks. Hopefully you'll see a bit more of me on here, as I might expand it further.
