    However those both use C to develop the games so Maybe see who can create the Best R*M Hack (Patch files only)

    I started a gameboy game for LD23 but due to real life responsiblities never finished it, here was what I got in about 5 or 6 hours

    basically, sign me up.

    I used GBDK and wrote the game from scratch, spent most of that time working on the tiles for the title screen than coding 😛

    wow nice game I had a little Play with it On the Visual Boy Advance me and you should develop a Game Boy Game together 😀 I had this really awesome idea but I am extremely shitty at C

    EDIT: I Beat the game it was very easy 😀 It was quite fun

    i developed 3-5 years on the gba/nds. They are great console to play with and you can find many emulators.
    If i remember right you can easily setup to write something for your gba/nds. gba and nds have a lot more cool stuff than the GB && i can’t remember if you can also deploy on the Game boy with the devkitpro. Anyway, hope this help && hope to see some hard-dev post a game for this platform in the future.

    If you want to develop for the original Gameboy (in Assembly), there is a great and pratical lecture from the Wichita State University ( on it. I used it to learn the platform and really liked it.
    If you want to run the compiler, emulator, etc on the Mac, I wrote a quick post about it here:
