Looks like he'd need an exception for alt. palettes too. I assume the white would change?

Yeah, the method you proposed looked great for almost everyone else, but Donny needed a different treatment. After trying a few things, I ended up hardcoding alternate palettes for him by changing the black to a few other dark-but-not-black colors. (Dark green, dark blue, etc)

New build posted (on the first post), which includes Donny from Haunted Halloween (thank you Retrotainment!), palette swaps for duplicate characters, some character-specific tweaks such as random human skin coloration for Lizard and better centering over her feet for Nova, and various bug fixes.

I only seem to be getting the star from all item boxes. Check to see if you forgot to take out any debug stuff?

Oops! You're right, I was debugging that last night and left that in there. Thanks for noticing! I'll post a fix when I get a chance.

Should be fixed now. I've uploaded the new version.

Just posted a new build on the first post, fixed a bug that caused Hekl to get stuck hovering in the air forever.

Hello. Is there any progress for this game? Also, I'm going to try to run this on an MIT-licensed NES emulator for ESP32 (if one doesn't exist, I'll write or port one according to an MIT licensed tutorial that I found). What license will this game have? And will the game be open-source?

I've also done some Let's Plays on this game and I'm editing them. It's quite fun!

I consider the game finished unless any bug reports appear, so no more progress since what I posted in the thread. As far as license, I haven't officially picked a license (not sure if I will open-source it later, maybe so). I give you permission to play/distribute/perform the game non-commercially. If that's not legal enough for you, you are welcome use it under a CC BY-NC-ND 3.0 license for now.

This game has really bad character design. So many ugly, unoriginal designs. Some even look like they were designed by children.

But the character 'O' - WOW!!! What a wonderful character! I'm sure whoever created that character is the reincarnation of both Michelangelo and Einstein because that is some A+ design.

I'm kidding of course. The game and the characters are great. A nice, fun little multiplayer game.

Personally, I like it best with 4 players. It's not as skillful, but it's most fun that way.

Haha, for a short second I took you seriously and couldn't understand why you were being so mean :-)

Yeah, 4-players is really the true intended way to play. It's all about the chaos. I've brought the game to a few small shows and events, and always get a good reaction if I can get 4 people going at once.

It's rare to see pubby joking that way so at first I had the same reaction until I saw the rest of the message :lol:

Hi, I was playing the game today and had a glitch:
Original setting was Survival, 10 lives.
Two CPUs have already lost(on slots 2 and 4).
I had 7 Lives left, 3rd CPU(Donny) had two.
I took a powerup that switches our places on the screen.
When switch was complete, Donny exploded for no reason.
CPU on slot 2(Mage), came back from the dead with 79 LIVES.
Once Donny run out of lives, game ended, despite me still having 5 more lives(and I disappeared the moment Donny died).

Aside from that, the game is vastly different when you play with 4 characters instead of 2. Gonna get my sister tomorrow to play it with me :)
(to bad there is no "Team" setting).

Whoa, that's crazy. Thanks for reporting it. Were you playing on hardware or on an emulator? (any chance you captured a save state or anything if it was an emulator?)

Yeah, it's really supposed to be a 4-player game. The chaos is completely different with 4.
