Snake, Rattle & Roll (NES / Genesis)
« on: December 04, 2007, 12:04:48 AM »
Hello everyone ! I love that old game, and would like to create an interesting map (since all the levels are connected as a giant mountain) but I can't find an emulator that permits me to imput a GameGenie code like "freeze timer" or "super jump". Can anyone help me ? Thanks in advance (and sorry for my english, I'm french) ^_^

Were you thinking of the NES original or the Mega Drive port?

The game looks nice and interesting, but I've always dreaded the mere idea of mapping it because most of the time, games with an isometric perspective tend to be difficult to do. But with a  Super Jump code, that might be different. Mind sharing the code with us?

I've actually thought about doing this game in the past, but I'm not going to call dibs on it because I am busy with other things at the moment.

After Battletoads, this was going to be the next Rare game I was going to request.



At least I think it was by Rare...



Both those games handled their bright palettes very well.  Cobra Triangle, too, I guess.  I found Rare's other NES games (Battletoads & Double Dragon, PinBot, Wizards & Warriors, its sequels) kinda garish in colour presentation...

I'm curious about this "all maps are connected" claim. Are they connected "in theory" or could you truly paste all the maps next to one another and have it all work out?

Well, when I was a child, I noticed that when you look down or up in the levels, you could see parts of the previous/next level, so I thought the game was just a big map, with the colours/music changing depending on the level you're playing. Now the only thing is to make work the GameGenie Codes so we can properly connect the levels, adjust the colour change beetween the levels, not fearing those damn spikes :o)

It looks good except for some of the waterfalls. I just hope that the irregular top border is do to the incompleteness of the map.

Yes, it's a work in progress. I'll fix waterfalls at the very end.

Part 1 is done ! The Map is really beautiful, and I found something I don't think anyone has never noticed. You can read "NINTENDO GAME BOY" somewhere in a Level ! Where ? I won't tell you ^_^ If someone already knew it, sorry :o) Part 2 is on the way !
