In this episode we are going to cover two things, detecting whether any enemy objects hit the player ship as well as display the number of lives the players has remaining.

This will also include detecting when the player is out of lives and ending the game.  We will enhance this some more in a future episode.

The supplied code has two folders, Start, where we start the episode and End the final code and a copy of the ROM file.

The video associated with this episode is located here.

This is a new regular update on development progress on each of my home brew titles for retro systems.
This video shows work in progress footage of Sydney Hunter and the Caverns of Death for the Nintendo Entertainment System.
The goal is to make the game as close to the Super Nintendo version as is possible considering the limitations of the NES hardware.

Finally got some time to have a go at cleaning up Cavern Fighter for Colecovision, majority of play issues sorted, graphics have been tweaked, more colour used through out.
Just needs some sound and a bit more play testing and it should be ready for release very soon.

1/15/2017 NES Tileset Editor

Working on cutting up the art assets for Sydney Hunter and the Caverns of Death for the NES, and making improvements to my NES Tileset Editor at the same time.  Needs a bit of work to make it into something that I can share, but by the time I finish this game it should be pretty solid.

As we close out 2016, it has been a good year for Retro home-brew development here at Electric Adventures.  

There have been some family and person health issues I have had to sort through, but I seem to be getting closer to my old self.

  • Meteor Swarm for the NES was released on physical cartridge, Collectorvisions 1st proper NES release
  • A new title got started, with the prototype of Bezerk for Colecovision.

I made progress on other titles, and also released a new version of my Sprite and Tileset editor to assist all home brew developers.

In no particular order the Electric Adventures releases planned for 2016 will consist of:

  • Sydney Hunter (NES)
  • Pyxidis (Coleco/MSX/Spectravideo and NES)
  • Seaquest 99 (Coleco/MSX/Spectravideo)
  • Cavern Fighter (Coleco/MSX/Spectravideo and NES)

Quite a few of these are actually getting quite close to being finished.

Hope everyone has a safe and happy New Years and a prosperous 2017
