Re: Flap Happy and Fancy Free

So, I also need to ensure a good difficulty curve, spent a bit of time over the last couple of days assigning difficulty ratings ( 0-10) to the stages, whch, of course, means playtesting each one and noting it down. It's a time consuming process but I'm ~40% complete with 416 / 1024 levels rated, du...

Re: Flap Happy and Fancy Free

Handling high scores now, a bunch of bug fixes made, just under 8kb left to go for coding up the ending, more game audio and the layout of the single stage select mode. This'll be interesting as it closes down to completion.

Re: Flap Happy and Fancy Free

Made a bunch of fixes, added a roulette style fruit system to quickly garner extra points to earn extra lives, few more bug fixes, more music tracks and an ending then it'll be done!

Re: Flap Happy and Fancy Free

Apologies for the delay in updates, been busy with bits and bobs all over the place with work, family and, thankfully found some more time for some work on Flap Happy over the weekend! So, I've set out the instruction booklet and designed a simple, fun little logo for the game. https://socoder.net/u...

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

Looks (and sounds) good! I'm currently struggling with making compresion work for lil deflemask to gameboy (GBDK) convertor I'm working on. It plays okay but I can see massive gains in music compression. Just need to get the bugger to work properly!

Re: 2018, what's up?

Just saying I'll try to submit something this year. Although I'll likely fall back to C as opposed to ASM due to time if that's okay?
