Pokemon 1st gen remake possible

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Thu May 02, 2013 3:10 pm

I want to make a pokemon remake from the 1st gen games (Red, blue & yellow). How to do it won't be a big problem, I'm just wondering if it is going to be possible to play it from your phone, before I'm going to start working on it.

Note that the resolution I'm going to use is only 160 x 144. I'm going to use lots of tiles. I want it to be a complete clone, so not parts left out etc.

Will it be possible to play on a phone? Any tips on how to do it? Thanks :)

Unfortunately, this is probably something that you're going to have to make a quick prototype yourself and test out. I don't think there have been any large-scale rpgs like that for mobile devices made in C2.

It's possible in theory, but it's a deceptively complex game.

It's also Nintendo IP and could only ever be for your own use, so you only need to know if it will work on your phone...

would it not be better to make a tribute game, that has a touch of pokemon with your own ideas?..
As long as I can move left, right and fire, I'm Happy...

meh im not that original :3
It's not that I want to make a profit from it, I just want to do something and I'd like to play it if I can finish it. I don't know if I'm going to share it when it's done (if it gets done), we'll see about that :)

Usually companies don't really do much when you use their stuff as long as you're not receiving profit and not claiming the images as your own, which it seems you're not gonna do XD
THOUGH don't underestimate companies, some just hate it when anything of theirs is used in any way. Mario and Sonic fangames are very popular and do a massively great job at being a great game, but Sega and Nintendo don't seem to take those games down as far as I know. Go forth and make whatever you wish!

I second this. All the games I've created have been much more complex than I originally thought. A full-fledged RPG like Pokemon...just think about how many employees Nintendo had working on it...

Pokemon is a very complex game, you would have to get all the math behind battles 100% correct, and the mechanics behind all the moves in the game. I suggest you don't do it

It's possible, but RPGs are one of the most difficult genres to make due to so many overlapping features that need to work well together, so it's a significant task. If you're going to put so much effort into something, I also reccommend rebranding it with original content.
