Deathchase - New Virtual Boy Homebrew
« on: March 12, 2014, 20:44:29 PM »
[align=center:1v58mg40]

[size=140]This is a remake of the 1983 ZX Spectrum game of the same name by Mervyn J. Estcourt. Like the original, it is fast-paced and challenging, but the addition of higher-resolution, stereoscopic graphics takes it to the next level!

RunnerPack and HorvatM made this in about two weeks for the Planet Virtual Boy Programming competition after realizing they would not be able to finish a more ambitious project. We think it turned out pretty good though![/size]



[size=140]There are less enemies and obstacles than the original, but this is probably a good thing as those old Spectrum games were known for being tough! This version is evry bit as fast and furious though!

The game can be downloaded for free to play on your favourite emulator or via a flash cartridge. You can read the original development thread on Planet Virtual Boy right here![/size]

I have a bit of a hard time with the red too but I've never played with this system.  It may be OK playing the real thing.
