Game hobbyist and creator in spare times
i am from generation X, born in 1972 and i saw video games begins. That's why my Pico-8 games looks like 70s and 80s arcade games esthetic. Old school games still looks good.
Mainly inspired by Midway's Eugene Jarvis's flash color text style. Almost Namco/Nintendo arcade display style. Almost Atari 2600 and Apple II+ display style. Some example of what kind of game I like to do. I don't copy modern game's style. I stay in my time!
Enjoy this "better than this worst Atari2600 classic" for this new year that we hope better, 2021.
read the post-title intro in attract mode for instructions.
A remake from a Sirius's game in 1982 by Rodney Mc Auly. Was On Atari, AppleII and Commodore 64 computer.
A great mix of Galaxian and a bit of Moon Patrol on wavy ocean.
Rated as the worst Defender's clone on the Atari VCS 2600 console. Here's my remake of this one. Enjoy!
This is my snippet with PRINT functions that mimic Apple II text artefacts.
function _init() sfx(0) end function _draw() cls() nprint("normal",1,0) iprint("inverse",1,2) fprint("flash",1,4) hprint("hirez artefact",1,6) hiprint("hirez artefact inverse",1,8) nprint([[ nprint iprint fprint hprint hiprint (x,y) coordinater are in caracters not in pixels! 32 x 20 ]],1,10) end -- apple ii prints function iprint(_str,_x,_y) l=#_str*4-1 rectfill(_x*4,_y*6,_x*4+l,_y*6+5,7) print(_str,_x*4,_y*6,0) end function fprint(_str,_x,_y) l=#_str*4-1 print(_str,_x*4,_y*6,7) if (time()%.5>.2) then rectfill(_x*4,_y*6,_x*4+l,_y*6+5,7) print(_str,_x*4,_y*6,0) end end function nprint(_str,_x,_y) print(_str,_x*4,_y*6,7) end function hprint(str,_x,_y) _x*=4 _y*=6 print(str,_x,_y,3) print(str,_x+2,_y,2) print(str,_x+1,_y,7) end function hiprint(str,_x,_y) _x*=4 _y*=6 rectfill(_x,_y,_x+#str*4,_y+5,7) print(str,_x,_y,3) print(str,_x+2,_y,2) print(str,_x+1,_y,0) end
