It won't compile without a lot of work, as it is missing a number of dependancies that I no longer have, like the titlescreen kernel code/images.

 

Bummer, but you should be able to use Stella to recreate the image data:

  1. Start by playing the game.  Make sure to do as many things as you can so Stella runs all parts of the code (helps it to know what's code vs data, and to differentiate between graphical data and numerical data)
  2. Hit ` to enter the debugger.
  3. On the CartridgeF4 tab change the bank to 0
  4. type savedis in the prompt
  5. Using your OS's file system, go to where the file was saved - for me it was ~/Desktop/SpaceGame-Final-NTSC.asm
  6. rename that file to have bank 0 in it, SpaceGame-Final-NTSC_bank0.asm
  7. Repeat steps 3 thru 6 for banks 1 thru 7.

Once you've done that you should be able to use contents of the 8 files to recreate the missing data files.  I did just a brief bit of gameplay, here's what was made for banks 0 and 1:

Oh boy, I'm in for a challenge!

Great try James!  You inspired me to try to complete the game, so I gave it a few tries but failed.  I did make it to level 12 (58,075 points).  My previous best was level 11.

 

@Karl Gand @mvo great game.  Btw, I failed to mention this in earlier posts, but I really like the Kraal sketches that were included in the manual. The manual is very well done, but the sketches are the cherry on top.?

WOW, great run Steve!

 

I'm looking forward to taking another run it again in the near future. Hopefully we can both make it to the end one of these days!

Wow. I’ve now reached level 12 three games in a row, but still unable to beat it. This is quite the challenge.?

Do you want some pointers for level 12? 



I use nicknames for the Kraal, so you should be able to figure out which ones I'm talking about.

 

Swimmers are the blue things. You have to be aggressive with these.  Their movements are fast and more random than any other Kraal, so it isn't safe to be patient.

 

Mantises are the green things with great chins.  They are fast shot and shoot constantly. I don't cross under them unless 100% necessary.  Let them come to you and pick them off quickly.

 

The Chewing Gum guys are the worst.  They start out where you can't shoot them unless they are stationary and requiring a double-shot to eliminate, but they don't stay that for long.  They morph in to RANDOM form and RANDOM ability, so forget everything you knew about any of the previous aliens.  This is the challenge.. you have to forget your training.

 

On rare occasions, they change so fast that you don't even notice that they are the Chewing Gum guys.  You have to pay close attention, because fighting them is TOTALLY different from fighting the Swimmers (aggressive), and Mantises (stay ahead of them and let them come to you a bit).

Victory! 

This is an excellent shooter and is highly addictive "must play one more time".  Love it.  I'll continue to play for personal high scores.

 

@Karl Gand @mvo thank you both for making this game.  The entire CIB is a treat.  Karl thanks for making Tiny Space Game (AKA SG2K) as well.

Wow, you did it, and from all the comments on ZPH you might be the only person to have completed the game.  This makes me want to give it a try, I've never played it, in fact due to my tunnel vision I am not sure I was even aware of this homebrew before this week.

Not the first...Maggie Vogel (one of the dev's) has completed it.

 

This is classic shooter.  I had put my copy away. I hadn't been able to get passed level 10 for quite some time, but watching James made me want to give it another go.  This game is highly addictive (at least it is for me), so I knew once I started playing, I wouldn't want to stop until I had completed it. Tons of fun, especially with the various Skill levels included and it saves your high score, so you can always play for HS too.

I appreciate the kind words, and it is really gratifying to see someone else beat the game. There's a lot of content with the higher-levels Kraal and the last two bosses that most have never seen. Not to mention Maggie's victory tune.  ?

The last level is brutal, but my favorite. Love all that goes on within that level and really like the victory tune. All of the tunes and sounds are well done.
