Wow, way to make me choke up.

I remember reading Red Metal's posts. He had so much enthusiasm towards his Snatcher project. It was very saddening to hear the news..

This really is amazing Thunderstruck. Seriously, good on you for bringing his project to life. I'm sure this would have put the biggest smile on his face.

Thanks allot for all the comments. I highly recommend everyone to play it on hardware. The music has less static on the emulator but the stero backgrounds look much better in 3D. The pixel distortion looks somehow wrong when you only see the left eye image.

I was a bit surprised though that Jordan didn't have anything on file when I entered "Thunderstruck".


There is actually one easteregg in the Jordan computer because I forgot to take it out.

That's some amazing sound quality! And some of the best stereo backgrounds since Virtual Bowling, did you 3D-fy them by hand?


Writing the sound engine was surprisingly easy. Looking at DogPs and Horvats code helped allot though. There is still some static sometimes which bothers me a bit.

The image conversion is a half automated process. The conversion to redscale vb images happens automatically, but I need to draw a depth map for the stereoscopic images. I got quite fast at drawing those with photoshop. My converter uses the depthmap to generate a stereo SBS image.

Great job on this game. I need to get my hands on a FlashBoy so I can enjoy it the way it was meant to be played. Thank you for continuing to keep the Virtual Boy alive with new games.

The backgrounds are very well done. The awesome 3D effect really does bring each picture to life. Also the shooting game controls flawlessly.

Also really cool to hear this sort of sound out of the Virtual Boy, it's nice to hear something so different!

The sega cd version. But as with all the different versions there are many tiny differences.
