Only few days after the new coding competition started, we already saw the first entry. “PongInvaders” by our new member usch (have a look at the User ID :cool:) combines Pong/Arkanoid and Space Invaders into a fun new game concept. You’ll be able to follow further development of this project in the release thread. Welcome to the community, usch!
In other news, a new Virtual Emulator has been released. It’s called VBjin and is a merge of the PCEjin emulator with the Virtual Boy core from Mednafen 0.9, so it’s basically Mednafen with a nice GUI. You can download and follow the project on its Google Code page.
One thing that I’ve missed is that a new version of GoodVBoy has been released some weeks ago. Version 3.1415 adds most of the newer homebrew releases, but for some reason misses BLOX 2.
VBjin runs a bit slower/choppier on my system than Mednafen, but that’s probably because of the really annoying console window in the background that prints numbers and other gibberish whenever I press a key 😛
The GUI is appreciated (but not really necessary) and I’ll definitely keep an eye on this one!
