Gradius homebrew Sega Mark III / Master System version
Post Posted: Mon May 25, 2015 10:56 pm
Norix who is making the GG-LCD mode is working on a port of Gradius for the SMS

Compare to the Korean Gradius/Nemesis which is backported from MSX1 and using the legacy SG-1000 mode:

Very nice. I always thought that the Master System would be well suited for housing a version of Gradius, and this looks much closer to the arcade game than the famed NES version. There still seem to be some minor slowdown issues, though.

Interesting! Looks very nice but I hope most of the slowdown can be eliminated.

Do we have any information if this is based on some other version or if everything is being written from scratch?

Just like R-Type and Sagaia (Darius), flickering like a boss.

This is really nice. But the first pic of this post show a cart running?

R-Type disable level background so the boss can use the background and scroll. Here Gradius is trying to get both horizontal scrolling and big boss moving up/down which isn't really possible to get perfectly. It's already pretty bug it manage to use sprites in that way.
