I note the low number of colours, which suggests maybe palette switching for the smooth H-scroll (fast vertical line draw / clear)? Or maybe a MODE 3 type scheme?

It has 3 colours and cycles them through the palette.

first 0..3 are active colours, then 4..6 (0..3 are set to black), then 7..9 etc

The author explains a bit about this on his website.

It has a nice style a bit like this on wii:

Just read his blog, Linke provided in previous post from Arnoldemu. It's all explained there.

The way I understand it is that he always keeps PEN 0 and adds two more PENs (1-2, 3-4, 5-6, 7-8, 9-10, 11-12, 13-4). There are 7 pairs of additional pens. After using all 7 pairs, he uses the other screen.
