I need some guidance, please

This forum is currently in read-only mode.
  • Hello, I'm new to Scirra, and have been digging through the forums for information, but what I'm looking for is a bit specific, so I'm hoping someone more familiar can show me the way.

    What I'd like to do is a retro 2d platformer, with a 16-bit console look to it. I'd like it to look and feel like an SNES game, but I'm not sure where to start. I see some mentions of engines that were made, and I know nothing about engines withing engines... weird, but could be useful.

    Are there any specific threads, downloads, or support pages that would help me get what I'm looking for?

    I appreciate any help, thanks!
