Gorilla, Nibbles and Tetris
Author(s)Christian Auby (DesktopMan)

Gorilla, Nibbles and Tetris is a package of three remake of classic games on NDS.

It was an entry to the NEO Flash Competition 2005.


NDS for wifi and emus (although not all seem to support them). .ds.gba for neoflash/flashcarts.

User guide

Gorilla: Enhanced remake of the old qbasic classic. Monkeys that shoot bananas.

Nibbles: Enhanced remake of the old qbias classic number two. Worm eats fruit. There are Fun mode and Two player mode.

Tetris: Tetris for DS. Playing using drop gives more points due to the nature of the standard tetris specifications way of calculating score.
