datafrog has released a new game for the Nintendo DS, heres the release info:
Rally X (for those who don't know) is a classic arcade game from 1980. It's one of those game I keep coming back to in my mame collection and thought would be perfect for the DS.
This is my first project and is nowhere near completion though I thought I'd post what I've done so far and see what kind of feedback I get. Graphics are simple but faithful to the original - just how I like it
Currently, you can drive around the map (same map as the arcade version) and that's about it. Like in the arcade game, if the car hits a wall, it will move and turn by itself when you're not controlling it with the pad.
I'm using the DS's hardware rotation to show the car turning. This doesn't seem to be visible on DeSmuME but works fine in Dualis and on the DS hardware itself
Things missing are a map and scoreboard / fuel status - these are all destined for the second screen.
It's also missing enemy cars, flags, rocks, splash screen, sound, etc. I'll be adding these things when I can and hope for completion soon
The car should also be aligned to an invisible grid to keep it in line with the map (in the arcade you could only turn every 16 pixels). At the moment it's free flowing - I hope to fix this soon.
Also, collision detection is functional but a bit jerky when you try to turn a corner just before you hit it - this is probably the next thing I'll be fixing.
By the way, if you can get the car to stop (jammed in a corner, please let me know how - it shouldn't be able to stop moving at all!
the .nds works fine on my GBAMP though I haven't been able to check the other builds (.sc and .gba)
