A downloadable multicart anthology

Since 2011, The NES Coding Competition has granted its contestants just 64 kilobytes to make the very best game that they can. On this compilation, you’ll find all of the entries from 2019—our sixth competition.

Many of them have received bug fixes or updates. Others are included as they originally appeared in the competition. All of them are astonishing achievements. Think you have what it takes to join their ranks? Of course you do! Hit up the NesDev forums for submission info or to find a collaborator today!
