DescriptionUpdate - 12Me21 made his own version. Check it out here: http://smilebasicsource.com/page?pid=693
This version is pretty much obsolete now, since I'm not going to improve it. You can still download it for the included games.
CHIP-8 is an interpreted language created by Joseph Weisbecker and was meant to be used for the COSMAC VIP and Telmac 1800 8-bit microcomputers in the mid '70s. It was later reintroduced on graphics calculators. Several ports were made for other platforms as well. The reason it was created is that it makes creating games much easier.
Control the games using a 16-key keypad. The display resolution is 64x32, so the sprites are very low-detailed. The only sound output is a beep.
This set comes with a couple of CHIP-8 ROMs that are public domain, meaning everyone can share them without any problems. Here is a list of them:
ASTRODOGE - my personal favorite
PONG2 - a better version of PONG
There are graphical issues in some games.
Add Super CHIP-8 support.
