New Game: GoSub

I am busy making a new game for the Game Boy, yes, another one. This one is called GoSub, where you guide a submarine through a maze avoiding octopi and getting the treasure in each coral maze. If you are familiar with my games, this was something I put on many consoles, and now it's the Game Boy's time.
I've made one level so far. If you complete it, it goes back to the title screen. What do you think? I've attached a link to the demo.

Re: New Game: GoSub

I don't know why, it worked for me. Try this:
http://www.atari2600land.com/gameboy/gosub1.zip

I don't know why, but firefox gives a possible security risk message due to my url being http and not https I guess. Just ignore it and download it because all the zip file contains is the ROM and a read-me file.

Re: New Game: GoSub

I've been working on this a lot. I'm making it a 64k game.
http://www.atari2600land.com/gameboy/gosub.html
It seems like when a bank is almost 99% full, the game will put more in another bank automatically. Is this how it works, because that's what it seems like.

Code:

Bank           Range             Size   Used   Used%   Free  Free%
----------     ----------------  -----  -----  -----  -----  -----
ROM            0x0000 -> 0x3FFF  16384  16228   99%     156     0% |-###########################|
ROM_1          0x4000 -> 0x7FFF  16384   8943   54%    7441    45% |###############-............|

Re: New Game: GoSub

it will not "put more in another bank automatically", more like "overflows into the next bank". which is ok for 32K game without any bank switching, but will definitely cause problems for the 64K game.

Re: New Game: GoSub

I discovered that when I made it a 64k game and put two more banks in it. I had to redo the music to fit in the bank.

A shame... Maybe try the GB Dev section of nesdev? -- https://forums.nesdev.org/viewforum.php?f=20

Or maybe it would make sense to create a GB Dev facebook group?

Nice title screen animation and music...

Runs on (internal build) of Argon ;-)

Re: New Game: GoSub

I added a Super Game Boy border to the game:

Here is the most current version (You start on level 27. Once you beat it, it goes back to the title screen.)
