In this series I will be working through the steps required to make a home brew game for a retro 8-bit console or computer system.
The primary system used will be the Colecovision, but I will provide conversion steps and code for both MSX and original Spectravideo systems as we go.
In later episodes we will be going through the conversion process to make the same game for:
- Amstrad CPC
- Commodore 64
- Atari 8-bits
- and finally the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES)
