Youtube Channel Recommendation: Retro Game Mechanics Explained

I like to know how things work, even if, when things are explained to me, I’m left as confused (or more) as I begun.


Retro Games Mechanics Explained does exactly what says in the title: Explains the inner workings of old games, like how the vastly famous Mode 7 actually works, or how sprites Objects are stored and displayed. For example, the treasure chests of The Legend of Zelda: A Link To The Past are actually two copies of what would be on “half” of the sprite; one of them is flipped horizontally and place it next to the other, and this reduces the amount of storage the cartridge would need.

There are not a ton of videos right now (guys makes them on his free time) but I bet you will find all of them very interesting!

What do you think? Are you interested in these kind of channels? Do you know more channels like this? Name them in the comments!
