Saw this thread on reddit  about what game mechanic did you go through a whole game not knowing.
I played the entire original #Gameboy #Kirby game without knowing you could steal powers. Accidentally pressed down after sucking in an enemy on a subsequent playthrough and marveled at how easy the game was after that.
So I bit the bullet and bought into the Analogue Pocket hype. Got a yellow one from their most recent solid color series, plan to investigate making the rear look like a Famicom cartridge.
My main motivation was to have a quick cycle for testing my own Gameboy homebrew on hardware with a real link cable, something you can't do easily with an emulator.
Heute doch einen ANALOGUE bestellt. Der schicke Game Boy - Nachbau ermöglicht das Spielen von Game Boy und GBA Cartridges auf moderner FPGA-Hardware. Bei dem stolzen Preis des Geräts erwarte ich nicht weniger als eine Revolution in Bild, Ton und Haptik 🙂
Hi, I'm a solodev making a series of cat detective games named Inspector Waffles. This new episode is a tribute to classic #GameBoy games. 🐱🕵️
Well... The number of wishlists on Steam is ridiculously low, please help me! 😁
Micro Machines [AGB-AXZP-UKV] Instruction Booklet now available: https://archive.org/details/micro-machines-ukv-manual
This game is my first personal experience with the series. And I suck really bad haha, it's really hard. Also, I always thought it was just a racing game but no.
There was already an existing scan of this on The Internet Archive, but I'll be replacing it with mine on my list because... well... if I'll be honest it wasn't very good.

GB-Wordyl for the #MegaDuck Laptop models!
Possibly the first homebrew release to ever use the physical keyboard on this console. The MegaDuck is a slightly altered Game Boy clone, and there is even this weird and delightful laptop version.
With some reverse engineering it's now possible to use some of it's special features.
Thanks to Eucal.BB for help with laptop model testing!
Open source, of course :)
Pokemon Trading Card Game 2: The Invasion of Team GR! [Pokemon Card GB2 GR Dan Sanjou!] (ポケモンカードＧＢ２ ＧＲ団参上!) [CGB-BP7J-JPN] Manual now available: https://archive.org/details/pokemon-card-gb2-jpn-manual
The 2nd Pokemon TCG game on the Gameboy, which only Japan got. It features a female protagonist (Mint) alongside the male protagonist (Mark) who is a returning character. I guess this technically makes her the second female protagonist in the Pokemon games? Unless there are other protagonists I am unaware of, which definitely could be the case.

I have a feeling there's not enough room in the ROM, but I would love it if I could use this for the credits music in Super #GameBoy 2: #Vaporwave Edition. This is from Torchkas, the same person who gave us the incredible #VLDC 9 "abstract map" tune. Recorded from real #SNES hardware.

I have pulled together 30 extra physical copies of Super JetPak DX for #GameBoy DMG & Color compatible devices. Get them from the Pocket Pixel Design webstore
If you already have one, leave a review, tell your friends, it all helps
When I was 11, I had an emergency appendectomy. While I was recovering, my dad gave me a #GameBoy Color, which had _just_ come out, and was _the_ coolest gadget. This year, I pulled it out of storage and it was ruined. The batteries had exploded and corroded everything. Well for my birthday this year, my dad gave me _another_ Game Boy Color, specifically to harvest the parts from and fix mine. Here it is! My childhood Game Boy Color running #Zelda Link’s Awakening, my favorite childhood game.
Wooooooow I just had a monster nostalgia bomb. I was checking out the games in the Konami Collection Vol 2 for #gameboy color when I came across “Block Game”. This was actually #Quarth, a game I played a LOT of on my original DMG back in like 1989-90 or so. The music and the graphics made me feel like a little kid again. Amazing. Here it is on my resto/mod DMG in its original form. #retrogaming
Block game happened to be the name of a game Konami released back in like 1979 I believe.

Addams Family : Pugsley's Scavenger Hunt for the Gameboy is an awful demake of Addams Family for the SNES at least the snes version had music but hey check out my #Twitch stream and please boost this post as I'm a #smallstreamer
Finally picked up the parts to resto/mod one of my 2 #Gameboy Colors. I think this is the goat for Gameboy games. As always, I get all my parts from Heldheld Legend. This particular GBC got new capacitors, new power board, new speaker, buttons, shell and new screen. Screen is a little bigger than the stock one. I’m a sucker for translucent shells but the classic grey called to me haha. Backlit GBC logo can be different colors too. #retrogaming
Will be going live on #Twitch at 12:30 AM CST I will be checking out another Gameboy game called Addams Family : Pugsley's Scavenger Hunt I'm a #smallstreamer so please boost this post and raids are greatly appreciated.

On débute la semaine avec une publicité française pour Hook (1992), développé par Ocean Software.
Il s'agit évidemment ici du #pointandclick sorti à l'époque sur #Amiga, #AtariST et DOS.
À ne pas confondre avec le jeu d'action sorti la même année sur consoles (#MegaDrive, #MegaCD, #Nintendo, #Snes #GameBoy, #GameGear) et développé par Sony Imagesoft.

Hemlocks and i finished our second game. we made a short #horror adventure / #pointandclick game inspired by #giallo horror movies. it's about 5 minutes long. i'm so unbelievably proud of all ashley's artwork, they really went above and beyond on this one. hope you enjoy
Errr, it seems I've created something akin to my own unit test framework. In assembly. For the Nintendo Gameboy.
It's literally just a Gameboy ROM running in an emulator, but it's purpose is only to share some functions with my main game and put tick boxes on the screen if calling the functions gives expected results.
(The "why" in a reply toot...)
New minor release of #gbtoolsid: 1.4.7
Console build: (Linux, Windows, Mac): https://github.com/bbbbbr/gbtoolsid/releases/tag/v1.4.7
And now for something slightly different:
I just finished Wendy: Every Witch Way. The game is more known for being somewhat rare rather than its gameplay. It's a short (1 to 2 hours) platformer feature invertible gravity. Very easy overall. What's standing out is the main character with cute and upbeat sprite animations. Perfect for taking a short break from bigger games/things.
This week I took some time to get my old Gameboy Zero up and running again. Inside is a Raspberry Pi Zero and a small RP2040 board powering the Neopixel strip that illuminates the case while charging. I also designed and 3d printed a custom stand so I can display it without falling over every three seconds!
For a while now, I have been concerned about a trend I see surrounding the public discussion of homebrew titles within the #gameboy scene. This problem is a serious lack of critical reviews of commercial GB homebrew titles.
To address this, I have written a Letter to the GB Community discussing why I think this is the case and why I think this is a serious issue for the overall health of the Game Boy community moving forward.
Link to essay here:
Oh yeah! Bought myself a #GameboyPocket with #PokemonYellow too, buuuuuuut the transaction doesn't show up for some reason, so I'mma have to call them about that because I KNOW HOW MUCH THOSE TWO COST ME.
Mate also gave me his old #PSP 3001, and you bet I'm going to modify the hell out of this thing. 333 or 444 MHz? That's GOOD ENOUGH FOR ME_

Who wants to make #gameboy platformer games with slopes?
I sure do!
I also want to see it become a feature of #GBStudio that is easily utilized by devs of all skill levels.
So, I'm putting out a $200USD bounty on a GBS slopes system!
Once developed, We can share the system freely and I will write a detailed tutorial article on how to implement the system.
If you are interested in collaborating or want to learn more, please consider joining my Discord Server.
I've now completed this simple Arkanoid/Breakout clone from this Gameboy assembly tutorial. [https://gbdev.io/gb-asm-tutorial/part2/getting-started.html]
Now I'm torn between starting the next tutorial (which I've intially found harder to understand) or learning to code Gameboy in C.
Either way, this tutorial was great to understand what the Gameboy CPU is doing and why some of its limitations and capabilities exist.

Hi all! I'm Jonne from Janakkala, Finland. On the internet I go mostly by the alias "laamaa".
I like to make #chiptune / #demoscene / #VGM influenced music with trackers and #synthesizers as a hobby and I post stuff mostly related to that. I like handheld music devices like the #m8tracker and #gameboy with #LSDJ a lot.
You can find my releases from Bandcamp (https://laamaa.bandcamp.com)
Hey! Did you know I once put #Doom and #gameboy (playable!) on credit card machines? Or ported Wordle to #PalmOS ? I've been plumbing all sorts of #tech into all sorts of other tech professionally for almost a decade now (unprofesionally for 16 years!) with an intimate knowledge of the inner workings of computers and low-level embedded code. I can also do killer hand-crafted #webdesign without relying on platforms or frameworks! And I can draw you in #pixelart for a modest price!
I'm currently 99% unemployable due to being legally in Brazil and physically in the UK. I've been without a stable income for 2 years now and I desperately need something my way. If you know of any commission or contract work that won't bug me with where I am geographically, please let me know!
