Educational Materials

A public GitHub repository containing selected code samples and the FamiTracker module (used to arrange the game's music) is included for educational purposes so that those who are curious may learn the inner workings of the game's code as well as its music. Playing the game and reading the code samples go hand-in-hand, as the game provides implicit context as to how those pieces of code make the game function properly. Please note that the FTM file, the FamiTracker module, does not contain the drum samples used in the game, as they are from the "99 Sounds" source seen above.

Pretty cool game! but can you play like Edde as a complete charcter?

Somarigamer,

I'm glad you like the game. While Eddie isn't a playable character, you can still summon him to assist you in battle with Super Moves. Thank you for playing!

ok thanks! btw, this is just curiosity but, what version of Eddie is this? is it original?

Somarigamer,

We actually used different forms of Eddie; the one on the "cover" and marquee at the top of the page is from Killers, and both the Powerslave and Number of the Beast forms are used for Super Moves.

Oh thanks! I was actually thinking about those desings because they look very close to the cover art!
