Enemies, new levels, tiles, parallax scrolling, palette fixes, etc. Not sure if I can finish the FreeBASIC comp game on time. Lost few days of developement time to an unforeseen situation. Haven't totally given up on that yet, but I'ts really hard to come up with fast and easy enemy designs and sprites if your concept needs "other programming languages" as enemies.

8-bit wars is coming along fine thought... Still missing most of SID music and SFX. Parallax scrolling needs to be simplified or removed from this level to be almost somewhat possible.

Keep at it until the last minute as sometimes things can come together really quickly :)

Looks good but keep in mind you don't need to go crazy specific to if your chosen computer could do x, y, z stuff technically. If you want to add in multiple layers of parallax scrolling then feel free to do that.  Besides the C64 had games with parallax scrolling.
Until the next time...

excellent graphics you got going on there.

tiny suggestion for you:
maybe make the text a little bigger, slant it (slightly) and take out the dithering (spots)

yup - you got it.  ;D
my (personal) preference would be to rotate it the other way and sort of put it where the previous one was - would fill the spce nicely and leave you some space below for anything else - logo, etc

Was hoping you'd have gone with the tiny sprite since it seemed to have more character, but still looking good!

I'm still using it. Our hero has 3 sizes that represent mental health. Basic enemies are color swaps of it, and there will be points where you need the tiny guy.

No work done for a while. My son, who is the Ron Hubbard of the team, got sick and got diagnosed with stage 4 lymphoma three days ago. My son is still eager to finish, albeit with somewhat reduced workload. Anyway it would be stupidest thing to leave a project unfinished now. But you know... Fuck! (Sorry about that)

Ahhhh ok my bad. I think my coherent brain shuts down after midnight. Glad you're still using it :)

Sorry to hear about the bad news!
