NES and games with good tricks.
Took my attention Rad Racer and marvelous framerate!


Yes, the fact that the SMS VDP does not allow changing vertical scrolling mid frame can be a bummer, sometimes.

Haroldo look to this game from 7800:

It seems to use the same technique from Rad Racer with segmented road. Would be possible our SMS have a similar game? Poderia o nosso Master rodar um jogo de corrida similar?

Most horizon-chasing games on the Master System use per-line scrolling for making the horizontal bends. Making hills is trickier, since its VDP does not allow changing the vertical scrolling midframe.

Here, I'm trying to teach "ChatGPT" to generate code for some random programming language, in this case, "choice4genesis"; normally, it you tried to do it in english, it will return a "Sorry, Dave" canned answer, but if you teach it in Portuguese first, then ask the questions in english, it works okay.
