Monkey Lad progress update
Post Posted: Fri Dec 09, 2016 12:42 pm
Hi Guys,

I've recently picked up this project again. :) I thought I'd share my latest progress.

I've just implemented collectible items.



I've attached the rom if you want to try it out.

IMO it's already one of the most beautiful games ever released on SMS. Congratulations!

Thanks. :) All credit should go to Surt for his wonderful graphics.

I'm currently working on jumping fish.

I just realised that I forgot to update the project entry with the latest version.

I've just added a new version. 0.3 This includes collectable items and the new jumping fish.

Great use of Master System color pallette.
Also +1 for not using KiddEd.

I use Tiled to layout the maps for MonkeyLad. I've written some little programs to convert the tmx format into data files ready for use by the game. The next step is to add support for placing objects into the tmx file. At the moment I had code the objects.

Perhaps... it wouldn't be the first time I tried to make something like that; then again, historically, I tend to abandon such personal projects halfway through... :P

Very impressive! I like how this game keeps on evolving slowly and steadily. I notice what seems like some Lua-tools on the tool list - do you prototype engine/game elements in Lua?

Yes, I usually prototype the game before writing any assembly.

I use Love2d. https://love2d.org/

I've attached the monkey lad prototype game if you want to try it out ;-)
