Here's my second project for Virtual Boy, called Insecticide. A fighting game, only using insects instead of people. Here you'll find the latest ROM image plus source code.

I am still updating the ROM.

Zip file with ROM and code.

About the game:

It's easy to kill a bug, but how about when you're a bug yourself? Strap yourself into a bug's shoes (wait, bugs don't wear shoes, but you know what I mean) and fight to the death. Are you strong enough to perform insecticide?

The Fighters
