    After I created the NDS Homebrew game Donkey kong Jr, I now created the game Mario's Cement Factory.

    It is a clone of the Nintendo handheld game and Watch Mario's Cement Factory.

    To give an impression of the game watch this YouTube video:



    I've put the devkitpro sources on Github: Mario's Cement Factory sources.

    The game .nds file can be directly downloaded from Github: Mario's Cement Factory nds-file download.

    Some information:
    • Gameplay identical to the Game & Watch Mario's Cement Factory.
    • Each level becomes gradually more difficult: more frequent cement dumps and elevator gaps.
    • Background graphic 'borrowed' from 'Game and Watch Gallery 4'.
    • All other graphics created from a picture taken from my G&W Mario's Cement Factory.
    • All sounds recorded from a playing session with my G&W Mario's Cement Factory.
    [ Yes, my G&W Mario's Cement Factory handheld is still working !]

    Have fun with it!

    Great to hear that you like it.
    It's not the most challenging game to create. But the results brings back a lot of memories from my youth.

    Version 1.1 of the game has been published on GitHub. See location in original post.

    In this version the following issues are addressed and the gameplay now better resembles the gameplay of the original handheld:
    • Better animation of the cement dump from the cart into the upper siloes.
    • No warning beeps when the lower siloes are full. It now only beeps when the upper siloes are full.
    • Better handling of the score increment when releasing cement from the lower siloes preventing short lag in the elevators.
    Hope you enjoy it.

    Regards,

    Paul
