Game Gear, Master System, and SG-1000 games playable on Analogue Pocket OpenFPGA







Quote
The new OpenFPGA feature recently made available to Pocket owners with firmware update version 1.1 beta.
In short, this allows developers to make all new “cores” for the Pocket’s FPGA hardware, allowing it to run games from other retro game hardware it was not originally intended to replicate.
This is an official update from Analogue, which they’ve made clear since the Pocket’s original announcement was something they’d always intended for it to have, even if it couldn’t be there on release.
Now that it’s finally here, the first new community developed cores included ones made to run Sega Game Gear, Master System, and SG-1000 games, created by spiritualized1997.
You can download these straight from their Github page.

Alex Kidd in Nightmare World (SMS Homebrew) New Demo and Cover Artwork



https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4OTdQV69FyA

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PsjwrbmOeRM

Alex Kidd in Nightmare World has changed a lot since I last posted here.
As I learnt to use Kidded, I was able to create my own graphics rather than using what Yeti had done with AK3.
Wanna check on that ? Just download this new demo, play it, find all its secrets, and tell me what you think of it !

“In Memory of Rieko Kodama” – Remembering the Legendary SEGA Designer, Director and Producer
The SEGA AGES series was Kodama’s last project at SEGA.





Quote
In a bittersweet moment, Kodama ended her interview with Famitsu remarking “This might upset some people, but I work on each as though it were the last thing I did with my life”.
Kodama continued, saying “If I didn’t actually do it that way, I wouldn’t be able to make something as full of heart as these. And I really have worked on all of them as though they were my last project.”

I could make a whole reboot of an Alex Kidd game with a combat system centred around rock paper scissors.

I even came up with my own idea for a card game (inspired by Triple Triad) that uses the rock-paper-scissors formula.

The rock paper scissors system unfortunately was hated by new players of Alex Kidd.
That's why in SEGA AGES version they put spoiler in the top and bottom of the screen what rock/paper/scissors we have to use against the bosses in sequence.



But for card games I think it's still be fun to play.

Rock, paper and schissors in Alex Kidd was unfair given you had to learn the patterns by blind luck or death.

If I were to reboot Alex Kidd, I would introduce two new martial arts to compliment Alex' Shellcore style. Bladecore and Fancore.

Each core technique is based on rock, paper and scissors and certain enemies and obstacles require the right core technique to deal with them.

As for the card game in mind, that's more lengthy to explain, but the idea is Alex Kidd may visit saloons and sit in games that play this card game for prizes.
