Sound is what all good video games should have. Sound is also hard to program on the Game Boy. But I managed to put some sound effects in my Game Boy game about hamburgers. I put in four sound effects:
- sound for the burger shooting
- sound for the milkshake shooting
- sound for the fry hitting an object
- sound for burger hitting an object
My game doesn't look any different from yesterday, but with these new sounds, it sounds a lot better. And with all these sound effects, they can all play at the same time if needed. But there are no channels left for music. But I hope that's okay because the player should be engaged with playing the game and have no need for background music. When I play Tetris, I always turn the music off.
I checked to see if my game was working on a real Game Boy with my Game Boy Everdrive yesterday. It does.
