Please see below for a teaser of a 'Massively multi-platform programming' project I'll be doing this week!

I'm attempting to recreate an old XT-DOS game called 'Grime' on the Z80 - I'm going to try to do the whole thing in 7 days... sounds easy? well perhaps not!

I'm going to try to make one game that can compile on to 11 different target platforms (CPC/ZX/MSX1/MSX2/TI83/Enterprise/SamCoupe/Gameboy/GameboyColor/MasterSystem/GameGear)

The whole thing must be done in just 1 week, and I'll be making a series of videos, and uploading them one a week midweek for people to follow the progress of the project... at the end of the project, the game and source-code will be released free... I'm hoping it will be a good educational tool for people looking to make little multi-platform games,

What, no ColecoVision with Super Game Module? (Basically a 32kB MSX1 with a different sound chip.)

Grime Z80 - Episode 3... Bring on the Grime! (and bullets)
The Grime game is actually starting to look like a 'game'... The grime can now grow, and the player can shoot... sort of!
And this is all working on all 11 systems!

That's great. Reminds me a bit of the old Basicode thing, but in ASM :)

Just to reiterate, the game and source-code will be free with the end of the series.

Yes, I guess so in a way, it was never my intention at the start, but things have kind of evolved along the way... the code is all based on the 'ChibiAkumas' code, just cleaned up, documented and extended to support more systems...GrimeZ80 was just a little test.. The 'end purpose' would be to create a much bigger game, for all these systems, without spending much more time than on a single system... what will come of it, I don't know, but I'm hoping people may learn something from it, and maybe use bits of my code in their own projects.
