Retrobattle is made to look and feel like the classic arcade-style NES games, such as Ice Climber and Clu Clu Land. Not only are the sprites limited to three colors each, but the scoring, increasing difficulty, and setup of the game makes for a challenging arcade experience that mixes various oldschool concepts. Note that playing on Skill 1 is pretty boring compared to the havoc of Skill 8, so it may seem slow at first.

This game was originally implemented in Game Maker by Daniel Remar. This is a port of the C++/SDL implementation by Andreas Remar.

--------​

The source code of my port is on my github (https://github.com/nop90/Retrobattle).
The compiled game (3dsx and CIA formats) is released on github (https://github.com/nop90/Retrobattle/releases).

Enjoy this game ad let me know the bugs you find.

Credits:
The original source is by Andreas Remar (http://remar.se/andreas/retrobattle/)
This game uses the sf2d sftd and sfil libraries created by @xerpi

Installation

In the zip there is a folder with the 3dsx and the smdh files inside, to be used with a homebrew launcher. All the resources are included in the executable using romfs.

Blah blah CIA blah? :)

I'm reworking the code I use for the CIA. I solved the problems that you kindly reported for fruity, but I found anoyher problem that happens in all my homebrews: from the program if you press Home and go to main menu, closing the 3ds case hangs everything.

When solve this, I'll update all my homebrews and I'll release the CIA for this game too. I ask you only a little patience. :)

Great game, one issue though is that the game kept freezing on my n3ds. Disabling n3ds clock and the cache solved this though.

What do you mean with 3ds clock?

If you refer to the possibility to set the 3ds clock with luma and other cfw, in my code I usually leave the osSetSpeedupEnable on. Since it's nor needed for this game I'll remove it in next release, Maybe this will fix the problem.

I try this game on my 2DS.
I like it. Thank you for the port.
One small bug: the font is not easily readable.

Yes I know, but since there isn't very much to read I decided to release the game in alpha version.

I'm using the original gfx that I scale down to 40% of it's size with the GPU, so it's normal that something is not perfect.

I'll try to edit the font to make it more readable.

Sorry, I meant clock speed.
