  3. 8bit-Unity version 0.4 released with scrollable tile map support

This is an amazing update from 8bit-Unity...character maps or tile maps, whatever you want to call them. With this update you can create maps in a text editor, assign sprites to the tiles and have the engine scroll everything for you. Super easy! There are other updates in this release but not Lynx related...

Quick overview of new features:

  • Support for scrollable charmaps
  • Multiplexed sprites (Atari)
  • Single and Double Hires support (Apple2)
  • New tech demo: 8bit-Dungeon.

    The new tech demo - 8-Bit Dungeon shows off these new features and it's actually quite fun to mess around in. You can try it out online here too.
