Two new games (previews) ported from NES.

Hi,

This time I focus on NES

Two games ported from NES. Both are previews. I have agreements from original authors to make ports (or/and pimp up those games). Both productions were shown on RetroKomp GameDev Compo 2015 (5th - Alter Ego and 12th - Chase ).

First one is Chase. Very simple and short but addictive. Just eat all gems from level.
Controls:
Joystick - move hero
Left mouse button - exit to OS (Sorry is not exact but should works and for sure this will be changed)

Second one is Alter Ego, very cute and nice platformer. Collect all bouncing pixels. You can swap between hero and ego. Avoid deadly skulls.
Controls:
Joystick - move hero
Fire - swap with ego (if you have them)
Left mouse button - exist to OS, same remarks as for Chase.

On last level there is a small bug which I don't solve yet. But is possible to finish game.

Comments / ideas are welcome.

If there is a musician who can help to improve sfx/music for both games then please contact with me.

requirements: A500 0.5 MB CHIP

Games in adf format in the Zone. Enjoy.

Regards
asman

These are awesome! Keep doing this sort of thing, please! We highly appreciate it.

They work flawlessly on real hardware (A500), BTW.

@PortuguesePilot

Thanks for testing on real hardware. I just did my own quick tests on A600.

Great work!

I took a quick look at them and they both look very accurate to the NES versions. The only missing is the music.

Try contact adrdesign and ask him if he can convert the music to Protracker mods. He did a great job with Mario

Great work. These are great, fun games in their own right, and even better to play on our favourite hardware

Man, I love AlterEgo!
As I said I could help with the music, but if you contacted ADR, that's alright, he's much better than me

PLayed Alter Ego, it's like a 1:1 copy which makes me a bit sad that the graphics have not been upgraded at all for the Amiga. It's still a damn solid game.

In fact is not 1:1 copy. There are following things missing in this preview.

1) Background animation
2) Particles (when you take item for example)
3) few other things here and there like animation of eyes of skulls
4) on last level three sprites blinking because there is no simple multiplexer.
5) there is no music

My plan is to make two versions of games: preview and final. Preview should like a 1:1 copy. Final - the pimped up version.

I very much like this idea but even better: you could also do like was done for many arcade emulations on Saturn/PS2+/etc., that is provide both the original and enhanced version and let the user choose in the main menu which one they want to play.
I would personally play both.

And damn these comments make me want to try the games on my A500+ so badly I might finally setup a transfer solution tonight.

I played AlterEgo for about 20 minutes and I found it very nice, congrats for your job so far!

I am wondering if there is the chance to save your progress or if it is possible to add some codes/passwords in order to start the game from the last level you reached...

Need to look at this. How long does it take to port a game? Can most nes games be ported?

Alter Ego looks like a game called Me and My shadow.
