Making Arduboy mockups of classic Commodore games is great way to spend an evening. Dicky's Diamonds was a game published in 1983 by B. O'Shaugnessy for the Commodore 64. The game scales down handsomely to the Arduboy's scale and 1-bittyness.
For this RetroChallenge I will port the World 1 graphics from Nintendo's Super Mario Bros. 3 to the Commodore 64.
This is not the first time I have done a graphics port of a Super Mario game. Over the past few years I have converted the graphics for Super Mario Bros. 1 & 2.
I am slightly overwhelmed by the number of unique maps, characters, enemies, objects and other assets. I suspect there are more unique graphics in the first world of SMB3 than in the entire game of SMB1. Each day I plan to post my progress, so please join my in this exciting retrographic adventure.
The Commodore 64 was my first and most beloved computer of all time. As a child, I always dreamed of porting NES games to my aging C64, particularly the Super Mario Bros. series. More examples of my Commodore Mario graphics.
