I’m loving making this game, the boss fight is nearly done and then it’s on to adding the sound effects and music now!

Pretending I was programming for the Gameboy was fun!

  • No heap allocation
  • 2 Bit Colours (4 in total!)
  • 160×144 Resolution (Who needs more than that, really?!)
  • Swappable Colour Palette
  • “Awesome” graphics (If I don’t mind me saying)
  • Simple controls

This is totally Not a Pokemon Clone™. Most of the content is missing for one as I made this in a weekend… Also it’s no where near as good.

Now with text! Multiple swappable 2-bit colour palettes for the amazing high resolution 160×144 display. Also an incomplete battle mode! Most of the engine is done so tomorrow will consist of making/finishing the game!

All done in C with help from Martin Cohen’s Punity Engine (a modified version).

The is totally not a Pokemon clone… *shifty eyes*

The Gameboy-esk idea is working nicely! I’m love the retro feel!
It now has the ability to swap to 4 different colour palettes!!

  • White
  • Beige
  • Green
  • Blue

I may even add the colour RED soon!

The game not has the ability to swap to multiple maps/room, scroll and centre rooms appropriately and also change mode when you head into the grass tall weeds.

This is surely not a pokemon clone…

The game is coming along nicely. The map mode is nearly finished and now has the ability to change maps and collide with things. On to battle mode I think.

4 Shades of Grey (only 12.5 as good(?) as that other thing).

Still not a Pokemon clone… *shifty eyes*

I’m doing this entirely in C and in a full retro style!!!
Features:

  • 4 colours!
  • Hi resolution 160×144 display (who needs more right?)
  • Sprite rendering
  • State of the art C89!
  • Definitely not a clone of Pokemon…

Need to create game mode switching and the transmog battles!

If I’m In – Dare to be Retro!

If I’m in, I’m gonna go fully retro this time. The entire game will be written in C and will be using the Punity Engine (https://github.com/martincohen/Punity/).

This means that I will be using at the most a 320×200 resolution or most likely 64×64 because who needs more?

Martin Cohen’s Punity Engine uses a 8 bit colour palette which means I will be restricted to 255 colours (1 less because 0 is transparent).

I love doing these retro styled ones as they actually help me be creative and be productive and have fun!!!
