I originally wrote this game for another Arduino-based console game system, and am trying to port it to Hackvision. Since I do not have a Hackvision yet, I modded the code to match what other Hackvision games use, and was able to compile it in the Arduino tool without errors.
Hopefully it will work, however if someone who currently has a Hackvision could try this out and let me know if it is working it would be appreciated.
My plan is to continue to develop the game–adding new features.

Yeah, it totally works — what a cool game! Thanks so much for porting to Hackvision. Whenever you would like to call it “done”, I’d be happy to make a video and add it to the games page: http://nootropicdesign.com/hackvision/games.html

Thanks! Glad you like it. And…it works on Hackvision! Awesome!!
I plan on making the animation a little more smooth — using some of the techniques of overlaying like Parachute and Asteroids use (provided that it is ok), and adding sound effects into the sound engine so it is that much more “game like.” Not having SFX when monsters die or you gain hearts takes away from it a little.October 13, 2011 at 10:51 pm #1148
Sounds awesome — go for it!October 14, 2011 at 9:53 pm #1150
Hello, me again!
I have the updated version of the source uploaded. If you could make sure that everything works before you upload, then feel free to post it on the site. It now includes sound effects and uses some of the bitmap functions.
If you do find anything let me know and I will try to get it fixed ASAP so you can get it posted.
License may not be a huge deal. I have been using GNU GPL v2 in the source (you can find the source at http://code.google.com/p/trodoss-arduino/ as well). If you need it under a different one (like MIT) let me know and I can change it.
Thanks! Now I have to order a Hackvision 😉

Oh, and the reason why it is “elventure2” is because of the Arduino IDE 😉 It gets confused if you have sketches/folders with the same name. I was trying to keep it organized on my end.
If you think it will be too confusing, feel free to change the folder/sketch name before posting it on your site. That wouldn’t bother me in the least.
There may be an *actual* Elventure 2 in the future, depending on how well this one is received. I have a few more shorter-term game projects that I plan on putting together first.November 11, 2011 at 11:24 pm #1197
I finally made the video and it’s up on the games page:
Awesome!November 12, 2011 at 2:26 am #1198
The video looks great! Thanks for posting it (and the game).
I hope everyone enjoys it.
