A Couple Contemporary Space Invaders Hacks
« on: May 13, 2020, 05:56:54 pm »
Hi, guys.  Wanted to point you over to a couple rom hacks I've been working on that are posted to Zophar's Domain, two Space Invaders hacks (one for NES and the other for Gameboy) called COVID Captives and Retro COVID Captives, respectively.

The idea within each is to fight the virus while staying in your house, with special appearances by several Dr. Mario sprites.

I put together these hacks as a bit of a "back to basics" project, as I'm refreshing myself on sprite replacements and doing a little more with text translation tables and different debuggers, the idea here that I more or less jumped into the deep end a couple years ago when running through my various SNES NBA Jam TE hacks.  Now, I want to slow it down a bit and practice some fundamentals.

Here are a few screenshots of the hacks.  Feel free to grab patches via the links below.

Retro COVID Captives for Gameboy (Super Gameboy compatible):

I once wrote a blog.  Maybe you'll find something in it useful?
