A downloadable Mega Drive game

Download NowName your own price

Megarunner is an endless runner for the Sega Mega Drive/Genesis! It was coded in C using the Sega Genesis Development Kit (SGDK). This game comes with the fully commented source code.

NOTE: This project will not work with the latest version of SGDK (1.80), only with 1.70. That's why it's now FREE!

Jump over and slide under missiles to keep running for as long as you can and rack up a high score! And once you're done, crack open the source and learn how to code a Mega Drive game yourself!

The code will show you how to:

  • Handle game states
  • Implement tile-scrolling for a parallax effect
  • Use structs for entities
  • Implement sound effects

And more!

You'll also find a collection of FREE tutorials on Mega Drive coding on my website, including a step-by-step guide on creating a basic version of Megarunner.

I hope you enjoy the game and if you end up using the code to create something cool, make sure to let me know!

Hi, I was playing Megarunner on a couple of emulators, and loving the game.  However, there is no sound when playing from a Mega SD or a Mega Everdrive. (on real hardware)  Just curious, could this be something to do with the header?  Maybe a region error or a checksum issue?  Thanks.
