New NES Hombrew - Twin Dragons
« on: December 24, 2016, 19:34:18 PM »
Nintendo Age member glutock is currently working on a new title for the NES called Twin Dragons.  Using some of Surt's graphics and MadMarcel extra graphics, he's making an horizontal side-scrolling platformer. For now he's using a test level which is very simple and mainly used to check every feature.

What's working for now :
- horizontal scrolling
- actors animations
- basic physics
- one-way platforms
- dragon's fireballs
- simple enemy AI
- background collisions
- actor / item collisions
- items / power-ups
- moving platforms (horizontal and vertical)
- basic sound effects

Hmm,  not sure why it doesn't work with Tapatalk.  Could it be the forum software at Nintendo Age doesn't work with Tapatalk?  Here is animated GIF of the game's boss fight...

There's a Kickstarter for this game now:  Twin Dragons - A brand new game for the NES.  Here is a video talking about the game in French (with English subtitles)...  vous parlez fran├žais?

It's almost halfway there and it still has 28 days to go.  If it keeps up the pace, looks like it has a good chance.
