Game Boy Axelay Demo

Game Boy demake of a NES demake of the SNES game Axelay. A short tech demo showing pseudo mode-7 background and sprite scaling effects on the Game Boy and Game Boy Color. Runs on actual hardware.

The NES demake that inspired this: https://twitter.com/upsilandre/status/1110517612574883840

  • Runs on actual hardware
  • Mostly runs at 60 FPS
  • No Music
  • Collision detection in the ROM is a quick and naive implementation only for shots -> boulders (working version of it is not in the repo)
  • Built with GBDK-2020, mostly C and some asm

Code is kind of a sloppy work in progress, not cleaned up. No current plans to develop it further.

Zip file includes ROMs for Game Boy, Analogue Pocket and Mega Duck
