Chip 8 emulator for the Gameboy Advance and
also the Gamecube via the Gameboy Player and now the Nintendo DS (via the GBA Cartridge slot).
What is it?
DrChip8 will allow you to play chip8 games on your GBA. What
are chip8 games? I hear you ask?. Well Chip 8 is not
a really a games system, it was instead a virtual machine
created in the 1970s and resurrected in the 1990s for use
with powerful graphic calculators. Games could be written
easily in the Chip 8 language, and then executed on any computer
than had a Chip 8 interpreter.
Chip 8 games are simple but there are many interpretations
of classic games, pong, joust, breakout, space invaders and
so on. There are also some more modern games such as tetris,
and that game everyone has on their Nokia, with the worm chasing
Drchip8 has been coded in 100% ARM ASM using the goldroad
ARM compiler version 1.7. I love this compiler, its only 88K
and it works like a dream. If you havent tried it yet
I recommend you do.
I have wrote Drchip8 to help me learn ASM and to also give
me some experience in writing an emulator. The experience
I have gained will help me tackle a larger emulation project
I have in mind.
