New Game for JAMMA: Sharpgunner Gallery

Post by ggvicviper » Wed May 20, 2020 4:48 pm

Hey guys, just wanted to share that I completed a game over the past few months during the lockdown. It's called Sharpgunner Gallery. It's a vertical-screen shooting game for the UzeBox JAMMA, and it uses only background tiles in Mode 3; no sprites. Game maxed out at just around 40KB.

Here's a link to it in action: https://www.instagram.com/p/CAaK0izlFpR ... _copy_link
Here's a link to the .UZE binary if you want to try it yourself: https://github.com/mmarta/sharpgunner-g ... rogram.uze

Let me know what you think!

Nice work.

I was expecting the music to be "Toccata and Fugue in D minor" when I first saw the images.

Haha! Well, that will always be my #1 gaming inspiration and all time favorite. I have a few Gyruss PCBs as well. Thanks for the compliment!

Want to do a full blown Gyruss with rotating scaling sprites and all that ?

As much as I love Gyruss and am inspired by it, I don’t think I’d want to remake it straight up. In addition to Gyruss already being perfect, I’d like to try to see what other shooter ideas could be tried with the Uze, and particularly using only tiled graphics.
