    icon16.gif Santaball - my Christmas gift to you

    Hello,

    I have tested out the NeoDevKit of Jeff Kurtz recently and have programmed a little game for the Neo Geo CD system.
    It is a "Pong"-style game with a Christmas design and it is my Christmas gift to all Neo Geo fans out there. I would be
    happy if you would play it on Christmas with your kids or family. Also, it would be great if you would take a photo while
    playing Santaball on your TV and post it in this tread.


    It is a 2-Player game only and the players have to earn nine points to win the game.
    The game features are:

    -four different ball speeds
    (the ball will speed up after 15, 30, 45 and 60 contacts with the rackets)

    - three ball angles
    (depends on the "contact point" of the ball on racket)

    - hand drawn graphics

    - background music & sound effects


    Here you can download the Santaball ISO
    Download it, burn it on a usual CDR, feed your Neo Geo CD and have some Xmas fun!

    Neo Geo CD cover: Cover Frontside / Cover Backside

    Here are some screenshots of the game:

    Is the NeoDevKit the only way to develop new games for the Neo Geo?

    It's not the only way but Jeff Kurtz made some fantastic tools to help speed up the process.

    Thanks for the comments guys

    It motivates me a lot to move forward and make a second game. Because with Santaball I have the "ball move engine" already programmed, I think it will be a Breakout/Arkanoid-style game.

    You can use ImgBurn - it is a free burning tool that I use personally. It has been successfully tested by myself for burning the Santaball.iso

    Very cool, Jojo. Your engine is also the starting block for games like Bang Bead/Flipshot and fan favorite Windjammers. Don't be afraid to get a little crazy with it. You could have a run away hit on your hands.

    Well if you are making then why not...
    A CD style case would be better though to fit in with the rest of the Neo CD games.
