Hi Everyone,

I'm pleased to share the release of my game Yo-Yo Shuriken on Neo-Geo MVS, AES and CD formats.


The game is a single-screen shooter with a unique twist: you are using a single shuriken that can be thrown, then recalled so you can hit enemies from the front and/or from behind. The game is even more fun with a friend, with a cooperative-competitive 2 players mode.

You can get the game ROMS (MAME, ISO, NeoSD...) from here:

The game is also available in physical format for Neo-Geo CD from here (you'll receive the AES, MVS and CD ROMs for free when buying the physical release): https://cotegamers.com/shop/en/accueil/153-yoyo-shuriken.html

And of course, patrons of the "free games" tier will also receive this game for free over Patreon, as usual:

Last but not least, here is the game running on my trusty old AES:

For some technical details, the game was programmed 100% in C using HPMan's DATLib and Blastar's NGFX audio driver!

I hope you'll enjoy it, and feel free to ask me any question!


I have always been looking for excellent game examples in this area to learn DATLib. If you can provide some additional source code examples of the game, I am willing to add $10 to purchase the game.

If you agree, I will immediately pay you $16 in PayPal.



Congratulations on your first NEOGEO/CD release... it took a long time to the final release, I was close to give up hope! top


Thanks a lot for your kind words, and yes indeed, it took quite a long time to have it released!

@blastar: you should look at your PM wink

@deqcdaw; hi fellow homebrew developer smile. What area / part of code are you interested in?


My purpose is to learn. So please provide me with the development tools and source code as much as possible. I really need these. I can give you $20. This is all I have. Thank you. Firstly, you can send me your PayPal account. I'll give you $20. Then you can package your development tools and code and send me a text message. Thank you.
