Philips CD-i homebrew - Super Quartet
« on: December 24, 2018, 05:09:04 AM »
Hey guys, just wanted to share what i've done for the Philips CDi !  :)



I've managed to port one of my games (based on Supra Killminds) for the Philips CDi and could confirm it works on a real unit.
For those who don't know the game :
Code: [Select]
Super Quartet is a puzzling game by gameblabla based on Killminds and Quartet (the flash game).
Your goal is to move a piece of the square into one of the 4 available spots.
You start with 3 lives  and the timer decreases more quickly as time goes on
Slide it over an already occupied place (or take too long) and you'll lose a life.



You can check out how the game runs on my Philips CDI 220 here :


You can also download the game here :
https://gameblabla.nl/files/cdi/Super_Quartet_CDI.zip

You can also find the other ports to other platforms here :
https://gameblabla.nl/game/killminds.htm

Use Imgburn to burn it on a CD-R for play on a real console. Make sure to use good quality CD-Rs, you really don't want to shorten the life of the laser !

I'm still figuring out the CD-i so this has no sound for the time being but it is playable. The source code is also provided if you want to make your own game ! (Note that it's not an easy platform to program for, you've been warned)

I've updated my post and profile with all you need.
Thanks for the comments ! I hope i can come up with something more involved in the future. It's a shame that most people just don't bother with it but alas, it was also the same thing with the 3DO.
