The only specs you need to worry about is the screen resolution. but also dont use more than 4 shades of one colour.

160x144

So cool to see there's an interest for this, I'm currently working on a little rpg with an engine havily based on Pokemon red/blue!

It's going to be classic rpg but with a business twist. instead of fighting battles, the game is about creating a business empire, so it's gonna be a managment game where you walk around with a single character!

This isn't a competition just an idea that might be fun because I remember the original being extremely popular all over the community!



Dear Andy I am REALLY dissapointed in you and thought you would know better

you are a retro gamer
youve been there on TK
so get your facts right

it was the 2-bit competition
TWO
2 bit = 4 colours
the game boy had 4 shade of green

seriously bro :C (i still love you tough)

btw the dude posting that M Bison video: aweome! one of the best things on the internet / the reason why youtube was made

i know currently i am acting like a complete douchebag from hell and i am sorry about it but have you ever done something that ISNT a platformer?
i mean nice and cool you are making a game / ripping of kirby but it feels like the same thing over and over again like all your games just in green this time sigh

Yes true but you double posted you comeplete idiot!!! what the hell I think I hate you now.

I do go for the platformer thing. It's easier to reuse code and I have a lot of stuff already made for platformers and not a lot else for other genres.

You should wait to play the game to see just how much I rip off Kirby. Because damn I'm going to rip it off SO much it will hurt your eyes. I might even make my character be able to defeat enemies like all those other Nintendo games or shoot guns like Megaman/Metroid. Ive already ripped off Tetris' points system. Dracula is in there somewhere too because you can't ignore Castlevania. Hmm what else. Oh yeah there is a triforce shaped object hidden away in the background on level 3 for those with keen eyes. (This is starting to sound like a rant now, don't mean to mislead you i'm just bored and trying to be funny.)

Yeah my memory is bad, getting old. 2-bit it is.

Love you too bud

To be honest I don't thik I'm capable of making small graphics I've got some art talent, but definitely not pixel art talent Probably why my games always have big sprites.

Anyway, if someone wants it, I have a pretty nice gameboy Zelda engine with the right resolution and scrolling and sword play and boomerang and cliff jumping.

You've got me quite excited there so now I hope you better put Dracula in there and im serious. It would be hilarious and something no one would expect. It's just that I've made this platformer this weekend in a game jam where most people also coded platformers. It's so easy but yeh everyone does it so I'm not blaming you personally but not a bad idea to splice things up and do something new that will surprise everyone like Dracula or alukard.
Im wondering if anybody still has any of those 2bit tk games.overall I still miss tk. The front-page on here makes it look like as nigga stuff wasn't happening while there is stuff going on plus tk was funny.

I think it's a teeny tiny cowboy. Or Indiana Jones. Either way, it's a promising start. With so few pixels and colours to work with, you're doing well if people can even recognize what it's supposed to be (I know I'm struggling with my 16x16 sprites).

Right on the money Sketch! It's supposed to be an Indiana Jones Rip off. I thik I'm going to use the character concept from Vagabond PI, which is supposed to be a Dick Tracy rip off but the fedora still screams Indy to me

I've got an idea down, it'll be a short puzzle game about avoiding booby traps and trying to solve puzzles to open tombs and temples. Here's a bigger pic with the characters talking pic on it.

Have you ever played "Indiana Jones' Desktop Adventures"? http://sites.google.com/site/indysdesktop/home22
It was a really simple little adventure/puzzle game, with all the locations/puzzles/items/objectives randomly generated so it's different every time you play, and games only last about 30 minutes. It's actually the kind of game that would be totally do-able in MMF2.
