DreamZZT for Nintendo DS

© All Rights Reserved.

I’ve ported DreamZZT to the Nintendo DS. It scrolls the game board around as you move, similar to SuperZZT. You can also hold the R button and use the d-pad to scroll around the screen. Text windows have been resized to fit the DS’s screen, so long lines will be wrapped.

You can grab an early beta here. It runs a bit fast, has no sound, and stops drawing the background colors half-way across the board, but it’s playable. There’s no file browser yet, so it automatically loads “town.zzt” from the root of your card. I’ve tested it with my M3 miniSD cart, I’m not sure what other flash carts are supported.

    Not to seem like an idiot, but… how? Do you need a special kind of flash cartridge or ROM burner or something?

      Yep, you’d need a flash cart. There’s two kinds: ones that go in the DS game slot, and ones that go in the GBA slot. The ones that go in the GBA slot require an additional boot cartridge in the DS slot, or flashed firmware in your DS.

    Very cool! It works perfectly on my SCCF, but that shouldn’t be a surprise.

    I can’t wait for more progress 🙂
