Universal games with CrossLib - CROSS CHASE

Post by Fabrizio » Mon Aug 20, 2018 8:42 am

Hi everyone,

I would like to present CrossLib: a universal 8-bit library for coding games for all 8-bit systems.
With CrossLib I have developed Cross Chase: a game that is somehow similar to a non-turn-based version of Robots (strategic Gnome game).

The library allows me to compile the game for ANY 8-bit platform.
I have currently made versions of Cross Chase for about 120 different 8-bit systems including nearly all 8-bit computers,
consoles, handhelds and pocket calculators.
In particular, I have made versions of the ZX81, ZX Spectrum, Lambda 8300, Galaksija, Jupiter Ace, Sam Coupe.

You can follow my project at:

Here you see a video of the ZX81 version:

of the Jupiter Ace version:

An older version of the game can even be played online at:

Could someone give it a try? I need testers.

Does it support UDG's for ZX81?

@nihirash, no UDG and no hires, yet on the ZX81 and ZX80 due to the technical complexity in C.

I could attempt WRX hires because it is supported by Z88DK but I am not sure it is possible.
