Actually retro games!

Ludosity at RSM14

Hello there! We recently made a couple of games for Retrospelsmässan, a retro game fair in Gothenburg. These are actual ROMs that run in emulators and on the real hardware.

Mattias and Anton made Tiger Jenny, a NES/Famicom game based on characters from the credits sequence in Ittle Dew. You can get the ROM here, and the source code here!

(To play this game, you’ll need a NES/Famicom emulator like FCEUX, or a cart like Everdrive N8.)

Mattias made Questforge, an Atari 2600 game. Get the ROM here, and source code here!

(To play this game, you’ll need an Atari 2600 emulator like Stella, or a cart like Harmony.)

Daniel made J.Ö.R.G.E.N., an Atari 2600 game. Get the ROM, source code and included Stella emulator here!

Anton made Atarena, an Atari 2600 game. Get the ROM here!
For more information on how these were made, this guide is what Mattias used when making Tiger Jenny. We also used Batari Basic when making the Atari games.

There were more games shown at the fair, but the makers don’t consider them complete enough to release yet. We hope you like the games!

I just “finished” Tiger Jenny, and i’m so upset that this is all there is to it. It’s a great looking game that reminds me of CastleVania but more cutesy ( which is honestly my jam ) but then I just got to the last area and it was a room with a skeleton that didn’t move. I want more of this, please tell me there’s plans for more?

If so, I might recommend not having enemies spawn on top of doors you have to backtrack through, and ad add a satisfying sound for killing enemies… If not… Why? It’s so well done!!

I realize this is from like 2014 but I just ofund this game the other day, loaded it onto my modded NES Classic Edition to play.


Did anyone make a cover image for Tiger Jenny? If no how about uploading some art of her so fans can make one for our ROM management software.


Noooooo ! Why didn’t i read this before starting the game ?
Now i won’t ever know the end of this Tiger-Jenny adventure…*sob*


That would be pretty expensive, but I guess it would be neat as a novelty to make at least one. The game isn’t considered complete though, as the end boss simply sits on his chair and does nothing. 🙂

Any chance of Tiger Jenny getting a physical cartridge release?
