iQue Now On Sale Lik Sang posted that the new Nintendo iQue is now in stock and shipping. The iQue is a handheld gadget that allows you to play SNES and N64 games on it much like your standard console but the hardware is built into the controller so no need for a seperate console unit. Liksang have also posted a article with loads of images (including iQue internals) and also a movie showing it in action. You can read the article and also order the iQue at Lik Sang. 17:24 GMT Aladdin GBA v0.99999 (GBA game remake/techdemo) Here is the text taken from it's homepage: This is my first videogame project. That is to say, it's the first time I've done something involving a realtime game loop where things happen in the background regardless of what the user is doing. I made this demo for the specific purpose of making a game-like-thing. I chose to remake a section of the first level from the Sega Genesis Aladdin because Aladdin is an example of a game that still looks good today. Unlike other Genesis games, the color use is minimal allowing ugly effects like dithering to be avoided. As a result, the game looks solid and has some amazingly smooth animation thanks to the Disney artists who contributed to the project. The demo was created from scratch, from defining my own object structures, to creating animation and scrolling system, and eventually taking care of collision and object AI (although I wouldn't really call what's present in the demo "intelligence.") Non-programming areas like cutting out frames of animation from the original and putting together backgrounds in a map editor took up the bulk of the development time and were the most tedious tasks. ... http://www.andriasang.com/program.html 13:23 GMT Bunny Xmas (GBA game) Shen's third and last update is an improved version of Bunny Xmas which was an entry to Visoly's Coding Competition hold in 2001.
http://shen.mansell.tripod.com/games/gba/gba.html 13:23 GMT Loop The Loop v21-11-2003 (GBA game) Shen's entry for the PDRoms Coding Competition has also seen an update. There is no history, nor a version number so I added the binary date. If you know the entry for PDRC1 you will recognize that the way things disappear after they have looped changed a bit. Now you can also hit fruits with your line without loosing a life. Just avoid the 'real enemies. http://shen.mansell.tripod.com/games/gba/gba.html 13:22 GMT SWorld 3 (Release 4) (GBA game) Shen recently updated SWorld 3. The changes for this version: * Difficulty Levels added * Luscious multilayer scrolling backgrounds * A couple of new enemies * Probably some other stuff I am forgetting * Continue and Options menu items aren't enabled yet, so don't bother trying http://shen.mansell.tripod.com/games/gba/sworld3/sworld3.html 13:22 GMT PDRoms Coding Competition I - Results The results of the first PDRoms Coding Competition are now public.
