    The fps settles at 55 a lot but mostly 56 actually. Had this 3ds for almost 4 years now and it still runs well.

    Well, at least it isn’t that, then! *phew*

    Again, thanks for testing.
    I’ll need to figure this out, somehow.. A very strange issue!

    But for the meantime, I’ll probably just disable Delta timing for the 3DS, and just "assume" that everything's as steady as can be ;)

    This week's game is based on an old Wednesday Workshop entry by Eikon! Yes indeedy!!

    Squashly Boop


    Bounce on the heads of the squashlies, and score epic combo points by doing so.
    In true AGameAWeek fashion, this is another highscore-frenzy kinda game, so be sure to share your best scores with your friends/enemies, to decide who's the squashliest of them all.

    You can Download Squashly Boop here.
    (And yes.. It is a bit Mario'y, isn't it..!)

    Another week, another game!
    Time for some "Blockman Gets" action.

    A simple enough premise, and one you've no doubt seen plenty of times before. Guide Blockman through the maze of pills, and gobble up everything you can find.
    But you can't go back!!
    This game takes the classic dot-muncher game and twists it into a Puzzle mechanic that'll keep you munching for hours.

    You can Download Blockman Gets Retro here.

    How do we install these? Are they in FBI, or do they have qr codes?

    I do hope there’ll be a new JNKPlat, but right now I’m struggling to get thousands of tiny sprites onscreen, without getting a framerate hit! On the original DS, I would've used tilemap background layers, but ... I’m not sure those are even available for 3DS Homebrew? Everything seems to be 3D objects and vertexes and things..
    I might be wrong, though.. I’ve still a lot of learning to do, to get the engine up to speed.

    Unzip the zip files from my site (click the 3DS icons!) and you’ll have .cia or .3dsx files to do with as you please.
    If there are other alternative methods that I don’t yet know of, then please do describe them to me, as I'm still fairly new to all of this, and I’ve been more focussed on getting them running in the first place.

    Time for another super-happy game!

    [​IMG]
    NeoPlat Blast


    A simple, yet totally frantic Single-Screen Platformer, where you have to watch out for the evil Bats, as you blast away the blacks from the level.
    Simply hop, run, and drop bombs, as you rush around the wrap-around level, trying to.. Blow even more bricks up!!
    The only goal is a higher score, and to avoid all the bats, at all costs.

    You can Download NeoPlat Blast here. Just click the 3DS icon, like always.

    Could you port your windows freeware to the 3ds?

    Nah, it's all written in incompatible languages, I'm afraid. (Blitz2D/3D/BlitzMax and Monkey-X)
    That's the main reason why I wanted to start afresh, this year, and write everything in good-old C++. That way, it's much easier to port it across to other things.

    ..The things I'm currently finding it hard to compile for are iOS and Android. But .. I'll get there! RAWR!!

    Possibly...
    But a new Centipong, with newer features, might be a more fun prospect.

    Aww :(

    Well, I guess the world of Homebrew isn’t a permanent thing.
    Some day even these new games will be broken, too.
    Bah, humbug.
