They Are Everywhere - NES Edition


As They Are Everywhere failed to come out on the OUYA / Gamestick as the consoles died before ocmpletion, it's time to ressurect it for the NES.

I've learnt a few more bits whilst making the last few so, after a couple evenings, we're at this point. Youtube compression is terrible.

Oh cool, you still have those

I need to make some Flap Happy ones! Although, I think Mega Cat have that under control already, hahaha!

Added death splosions tonight, just need to add more enemies, movement patterns, etc and I should be able to get close to the OUYA original

Sprite Tile usage so far


Background Tile usage so far



As each Wave had a focus on certain enemy types spawning in, except for boss stages, I'm hoping this should have a good amount of space left for musics but, I might be being ambitious here, not sure.

Gonna be allocating 4 sprites for the player, 4 for bullets, 10 sets of 4 sprites for 2x2 enemies and the rest for 1x1 enemies / bullet spawns, , then 1 for power up spawning, 3 for explosions / bkg stars. Bullets will essentially function just like enemies but with 255 health,. so pretty unkillable.

Wow, that's a lot of gfx!!
Can you flip those, too? Theres a lot of repeats at the bottom, there.

The sprites can be flipped, yes, the bkg tiles, sadly, cannot

Aww, that's a shame. I wasn't sure what worked in them there olden days!

The generic tiles in the BKG area should be fairly wll placed to make something a bit bigger further down the line though, but, I need to see how far I can get this week with it

Hopefully I'll get multiple enemies set-up tonight.

Sorta fixed-ish, not sure what's causing them all to respawn though. That phantom V-Fighter at the start also, hmmm...

How odd. I'd suggest a wraparound number loop thing, but they're all jumping at the same time, so that's not very likely.

Ended up putting together the score advance screen instead last night, forgot to post here because I fell asleep, ha!

(just realised) Ohh, so, only just over 4kb code so far!

Might try to do the high score board tonight before I return to tackling the rest of the game.

Yeah, I can imagine that game's code is a WHOLE lot lighter, since you don't have to build an entire bloomin' proc-gen level generator into the thing!!
Should also be way easier to test it, too!
Any plans for new features this time 'round?

A lot lighter than unity, yeah!

New features... I'm not sure, I want to see how far into the game I can make before I begin to run low on either CPU or ROM.

I'm already low on sprite tiles, roughly 23 of those remain and I might have to use them for the final boss, the plan is to recreate the unreleased OUYA version as well as I can, in as small an maount of space as possible, before I probably ask someone to help with the music (eh heh heh)

Then I'll probably approach Mega Cat with it again (crosses fingers)
