I'm having a go a making a Bomber Man inspired clone. Some work to do yet.
I intend to make it 2 player initialy, then may have a go a some basic AI opponent.
Any feedback welcome.
To do next: player animations, finish game tiles, then get the player two up and running.
This blog is an account of my attempt to build a retro stand alone pico8 computer.
below is a crude mock up the shape it will take.
The computer is a Raspberry Pi 3 with a 1024*600 LCD screen.
It has a mechanical keyboard, integrated power, amplifier, speakers, a
few switch's and LED's. Ports at back will offer flexible power switching, and integrated voltmeter.
The case is partly 3d printed, and partly made from acrylic sheet, it will be sanded and
sprayed a suitable colour and adorned with a pico8 logo.
I may also have a hardware cartridge slot, for pico8 cartridges(with SD cards in them)
Progress so far:
Pi image complete, with working screen and auto boot into Pico8
Base acrylic sheet is all cut read to assemble,
all parts are ready to go.
I also intend to have a concave screen and have built a mould to form the plastic.
If anyone is interested I can provide more details as the project progresses.
