Please see below for a teaser of a 'Massively multi-platform programming' project I'll be doing this week!

I'm attempting to recreate an old XT-DOS game called 'Grime' on the Z80 - I'm going to try to do the whole thing in 7 days... sounds easy? well perhaps not!

I'm going to try to make one game that can compile on to 11 different target platforms (CPC/ZX/MSX1/MSX2/TI83/Enterprise/SamCoupe/Gameboy/GameboyColor/MasterSystem/GameGear)

The whole thing must be done in just 1 week, and I'll be making a series of videos, and uploading them one a week midweek for people to follow the progress of the project... at the end of the project, the game and source-code will be released free... I'm hoping it will be a good educational tool for people looking to make little multi-platform games,

What, no ColecoVision with Super Game Module? (Basically a 32kB MSX1 with a different sound chip.)

Grime Z80 - Episode 3... Bring on the Grime! (and bullets)
The Grime game is actually starting to look like a 'game'... The grime can now grow, and the player can shoot... sort of!
And this is all working on all 11 systems!
