New SGDK Tutorial: Megarunner!

Posted November 4, 2019

By now you’ve probably noticed that I’ve written a tutorial on how to create a single-player Pong game for the Mega Drive/Genesis. Well, now I’m writing another one! This time I’ll guide you through creating an endless runner where you’ll gain points by jumping over obstacles:

HaxeFlixel Tutorials!

| [Ramblings] [Retro] [Mega Drive]

If you’ve popped over to the tutorial section recently you might have noticed that I’ve added my very first HaxeFlixel tutorial! It shows how to implement a simple, pixel-perfect 2D water shader which I used for Go! Go! PogoGirl. But a few of you might be wondering what a HaxeFlixel is. Well, it’s a 2D game framework that is as powerful as it is underrated! It runs on the (also underrated) Haxe language, is extremely well documented, open source, and has built-in functions for almost anything you’d need.
