Super Homebrew War is my entry into the 2018 nesdev competition

1-4 players can use characters from many other NES homebrew games, and will duke it out to see who's the best.

Play on one of 8 different homebrew-inspired arenas.

The game is Mario-style controls:
A to jum
B to dash and to use items
Down+A to jump down through one-way platforms

Jump on heads to kill each other, or get items from ! blocks, and press B to attack with them.

Items:

  • Twin Dragons Pepper (lets you breathe fire)
  • Mad Wizard Lightning
  • Study Hall Paper Airplane
  • Bat Puncher Punch
  • Nebs n Debs Crystal (lets you do the Nebs n' Debs dash)
  • Robo-Ninja slam (press B in the air to slam to the ground quickly)
  • +1 (a bonus point)
  • Clock (briefly freezes opponents)

Game modes:

  • Most kills: get the most kills to win
  • Survival: you are out after you lose a certain number of lives
  • Chicken: One player is the chicken, and gains points while being a chicken. Kill the chicken to become the new chicken.
  • King of the Hill: a box will appear on-screen. Gain points by being the only player occupying the box.
