1. Imagine I have written something very clever. Now imagine it is so profound that it changes your perception on software, robotics and life. 2. To say I have an addiction to writing software would be an understatement. Software, robotics, backpacking. 3. My life, my way. Welcome to ... my world.
I’m happy to announce that Bouncy Ball 2 development has started! Design is underway, and the sound system already sounds awesome. We have been able to make the Orchestra 90 sound mad. It’s using full stereo sound, mixing 4 channels, and uses hardly any CPU. We have a lot to learn about the Coco 3. Join us every week or two on the BB2 development blog to watch our progress.
8BitCoder.com is now live. My focus with this site will be heavy on the programming, with many retro entries. For example, the main computer I will feature is the Color Computer 3, which was introduced on July 30, 1986. I got mine around that time. The Color Computer 3, or Coco 3 for short, is a 128K machine with a Motorola 6809E running at a selectable speed of 0.895 MHz or 1.79 MHz.
Published my first demo video of Bouncy Ball just in time for Xmas. I decided to make it xmas themed after hearing about another Coco coder, John Linville made a game called Xmas Rush. It had evil snowmen that you had to save xmas trees from. That also helped me figure out what my story line would be. Since John was busy saving the trees in the forest, the evil snowmen stole everyones xmas trees from their homes, and brought them back to snowman's land.
Tog vs Dino
Available in the Apple App Store.
In this retro blast from the past, relive the action of 80's style hand held games!
A caveman has to eat right? Besides, that big 'ol dinosaur isn't going to miss one or two eggs will she?
Play Tog, the daring Neanderthal as he dodges lava rocks and avoids getting his eggs stolen by pterodactyls flying overhead.
Get close, but not too close, and use Tog's trusty hatchet to knock Dino into dream land and bring her eggs back to Tog's cave. Dispatch a similar fate to the pterodactyls before they steal Tog's hard earned eggs, while he is away from his cave.
