64 Bites - #050 - Extended Background Mode

Commodore 64 Programming Screencasts
0 ratings

The last of built-in character modes that the Commodore 64 can display is an extended background color mode.

It allows us to combine high-resolution graphics with additional colors but sacrifices the amount of characters that we can choose from.

In the hands of a skilled artist it can give your game a unique look that cannot be replicated in different modes.
