I'm preparing the writing of a pattern based library, very much like
some of the 8-bit computers and the SNES used them. It seems that 2D
platform and shoot-em-ups are still built up from patterns anyway, so a
library that will allow multi-layer scrolling pattern screens and
sprites might come in handy. Anyone know of development of such a
library by anyone else already?
