I was checking out Namco Museum 64 on Der Project 64 emulator. It’s a Nintendo 64 game where you can play 6 arcade games starting with Pac-Man, Ms. Pac-Man, Galaxian, Galaga, Dig Dug and Pole Position.
The reason why I snagged that to add to my collection of N64 games is because I remember playing Namco Museum Volumes 1 and 3 on the original Playstation back in the old days. They’re a lot of fun! 😀
I’ve been experimenting on Famicom Mini games on my Visual Boy Advance emulator, and here are a few screenshots of Famicom Mini games that have been tested successfully:
My future plans are to play more Famicom games; such as Ice Climbers, Clu Clu Land and Super Mario Bros.
Guess what I’ve been doing in Adobe Illustrator lately?
I just thought I’d practice some more drawing on my Wacom tablet while tracing images of various game sprites, and I will doing more of Illustrator so that I can learn new things on there. 🙂
I have been making some block art in GMod lately. Here’s what I’ve been working earlier this evening:
It’s an 8-bit flower based on the one from the 1982 Namco arcade game Dig Dug.
I found some more Game Boy roms that I remembered playing original arcade versions of them from awhile back:
Plus I grabbed another Game Boy rom that’s really fun to play:
Yep, I had a really fun time murdering enemies and creating words. 🙂
Last year I went to My Abandonware and found a DOS game called Dig Dug, so I decided to give this a try:
You’ll play as the dude dressed in white clothing, and you’re digging underground to destroy all Pookas (the red round monsters that wear yellow goggles) and Fygars (the green dragons that breathe fire) by blowing them up with your air pump or crushing them with large rocks:
I’d say this is a really fun DOS Game. I was thinking about playing other Namco DOS games like Pac-Man and Galaxian, but I’m gonna have to wait on that for another time. 😀
I decided to play some Mah Jongg today with the Namco tile set that I made. Here’s a picture of it:
I made them because they’re my favorite retro arcade games. 🙂
