SMS Snake Game
Post Posted: Fri Jan 26, 2024 1:21 pm
Hello everyone,

I would like to share you my first homebrew: a snake game.

It's not something transcendent, it's still a simple game, but as I'm just starting out, it's best to start with a simple project.

The source code is available for anyone. It's not perfect, but if it can also serve as an example for others who would like to get started too.

Nice game, the speed of the snake increases nicely. The effect of the apple inside the snake is nice, too.

I should try to add some sounds & maybe music & maybe stages with different walls, etc. I know, I know, to finish a game is not an easy thing xD.

Were done entirely in asm? what an effort dude!

Thanks.

Music and sound is definitely the next thing I'm going to add to the game.
I'm curious to see how to program a sound engine to play VGM format.

Yeah, doing this game in assembler wasn't the easiest thing to do. But after Maxim's tutorial "HowToProgram", I already had a functional development environment and couldn't see myself changing everything. In the end, I enjoyed it and I'm thinking of continuing with asm for the next game.

Very nice!
Here you are the Spanish translation for the rear cover ;-)

“Adéntrate en la simplicidad de este juego Snake en la Master System. En la carrera por comerse la mayoría de las manzanas, tú destreza ser llevada al límite.
¿Quien conseguirá la mayor puntuación? ¿Tú o tus amigos?”

Congratulations! It is a great game, and it is entirely done in ASM code.

Only a little mistake with the Spanish text.

In case you need it - here you have the Italian text :)

Lasciati trasportare dalla semplicità di questo gioco di Snake su MasterSystem. La tua destrezza sarà spinta al limite nella corsa per mangiare il maggior numero di mele. Chi avrà il punteggio migliore, tu o i tuoi amici?

You could just use what's already available: PSGlib ;)

oh, thanks ! I'll definitely look into that.
I'd still like to try making a little prototype of my own, just to at least learn a little better how it all works.
