A few years ago we ported the solitaire minigame from SHENZHEN I/O to MS-DOS and sold floppy disks with the game and its source code. It was a surprising success!

Not long after the release of EXAPUNKS in 2018 we started working on an NES port of HACK*MATCH, the game's hacking-themed action puzzle minigame. Little did we realize it would take us two years to complete and involve writing our own C compiler for the 6502. But now we're done and we want to share it with you!

This package is the same as the "digital-only edition" tier from our IndieGoGo campaign. It includes:

  • ROM files for the game (NTSC and PAL)
  • The game's source code and assets
  • The source code for our C compiler
  • Print-ready PDFs of the cartridge box and labels

If you want to know more about the development of the game you should check out this write-up. We also still have a few physical cartridges for sale on the Zachtronics pop-up store.
