[NDS GAME] Gioioso!
« on: August 19, 2006, 08:05:42 PM »
Phew! I finished this in time! Hope you like my game.

The game is called Gioioso! A Weird Music Game, gioioso is a musical term that means that something is played in a joyous manner. I think it fits this game's nature.

Here's the story:
Dr. Loopy Discord has invented a horrible machine that can materialize music into small living balls called the Riffballs. He calls the machine Retro Resonance. Then by accident the machine escaped from Dr. Discord and started to furiously materialize all the music in the world into cute little riffballs.

But the riffballs can not live in the solid world, they can only live when they are in the form of sound waves. So all the music in the world is dying!

Dr. Discord calls for you, the player, to help him save all music in the world. Riffballs can be transformed back into music by combining the same coloured riffballs together. Just drag them on top of each other with your stylus and that will generate music.

This version of the game has four survival mode levels. I didn't have time for a story mode, but it will be there in a future version.

EDIT: For some reason the attachment doesn't work. Tell me if it works for other people. I tried to upload again and with other browsers but no... I'll add the files also individually just to be sure.

This looks really cool, but I can't get it to work on my GBAMP any one else having that problem.  I start the rom and all I get is a black screen.

Thats a really fun game. At first I didnt bother downloading it (I didnt think it look all that good from what id seen in the screenshots)

But Im really glad I did in the end. IMO one of the best DS homebrew games ive played. It looks pretty well tested as well. I cant see any bugs at all!

The description is nice and sounds real original, but I cant get it to work on my GBAMP CF. Just got 2 black screens. I hope you fix that!

I'm working on it. You can get a fixed version in the near future from my site. I wouldn't want anyone to miss this game :)

As I wrote in your page, Gioioso! it's a great game and will be better if you work in a history mode,time trial or something like that(now it's endless).

Thanks for the game!  ::sm-29.gif::

I watched the video, I bet it would win the compo if it would run. Any idea why it doesnt run on gbamp? is it trying to load save data or something?

I think it's because it's using PAFS instead of GBFS. I will fix this soon.
