New song up finally.

'Tis from Space Manbow on the MSX2. It's really a great game, and if you've never played it or heard of it, I demand you buy a $300.00 MSX2 on ebay and play this game. It's just that good.

Other than that, I have nothing of importance to share.
Good day to you all.

Gradius Flash

well, I've finally begun work on a new project: Gradius Flash. (temporary name). Got the title and ship select screens done as well as movement, shooting, powerup system, and enemies. I still need some help with some stuff programming wise. So if you think you might be able to help, please send me a PM. I need help with Option movement, getting the enemy bullets to work correctly, and spawning powerups.

Here's the title screen:

Some guy decided that he wanted the NES to be re-launched! He is asking for petitions for his letter to Nintendo. He is hoping to get 1,000,000 signatures before he addresses Nintendo. So if you want the NES back, check out this website: http://savethenes.blogspot.com and sign the petition. I did!

Save the NES!


Recca

If you think you're good at SHMUPS (Shoot em' ups), then check this game out!
Summer Carnival '92 Recca (meaning Blazing Fire in Japan) is possibly one of the hardest games of it's genre out there, so if you think up to the challenge take a peek at this video:

I have a pirated version on my Japanese Famicom, because the original is near impossible to find for less than $200. I am able to beat the normal game, but I don't think I'll ever be able to beat hard mode or Zanki Attack!

Just because you don't have a Famicom doesn't mean you can't play it though. There is a ROM floating around on the internets for use in an emulator. Don't play this game if you have high blood pressure or anger management problems. You've been warned!

Recca


I'm happy.

I just beat Gradius II on my Famicom for the first time. Woohoo!!!
That was HARD! I could usually make it to the last level but would be killed one way or another.
Here's a video of what it's like:
(Note: This isn't me playing)

It looks easier than it is :3

Also, I made this NES cartridge label for the game. There are a few game reproduction sites floating around, so you can use this label if you like. I have a hi-res copy that I can give you if you PM me.

I'm happy.


Holy Crap!
