What console is NX based on?

Just a simple question I want to ask so that when i make a new project, i can control the scale of the project and know what to expect in the final result, as well as not overflow the game memory :/

On an upcoming update, NX will show how much memory your game is using :)

The main inspiration was the Game Boy Color, but it has some more features, like two BG layers. The sound is inspired by the C64.

@was8bit Though i rarely use the iOS ver. (pc user here), this is a pretty useful update!

@Timo So it's like two consoles put together, interesting.

Thanks guys!

I am virtually all ipad ;) I would get ipad pro if i could afford one... in fact, i would love a huge one if I was stinkin' rich, like a special ipad made about 3ftx2ft to carry, and one 6ftx4ft to put on a wall ;).... the special big ones, I would want special graphics display that would "upscale" all graphics to match the resolution so blocky lower res graphics would smooth out and look great ;)

The two BGs and "priority" are from the Mega Drive / Genesis. So it's a mix of three systems basically, but all simplified to make it easier to program.

"The main inspiration was the Game Boy Color, but it has some more features", And some less features !
(Where are START and SELECT ?)

@was8bit Woah, that's quite the setup

@Timo Nice.

@gamer_12321 Probably the pause button. Timo did say that it is an simplified version of the three.

Oh, of course the physical design and the buttons are inspired by the Sega Game Gear :)
