Indie developer Ludosity is well known for developing fun games for tablets and smartphones, but now it seems to be taking its first steps to porting one of its games to Nintendo hardware - just not the Nintendo system which you might have assumed! Speaking to our chums at AppSpy at this year's Nordic Game show, the developer showed a working prototype of Progress running on the ageing Game Boy.
In Progress, there is a white command written on a black screen. You need to figure out what it means so you can turn the screen white and progress to the next screen. On the iPad this could involve shaking your tablet around, swiping from left to the right or roping in a friend to help you touch the screen with more digits than your two hands combined can manage.
Ludosity's Tim Garbos revealed that the Game Boy port will aim to use all the features of the humble 8-bit system to the max, including possibly supporting the Game Boy Camera attachment. It was ported by some of Tim's friends as a surprise and features 10 puzzles based on using the D-pad and face buttons of the console.
It looks like quite a faithful representation of its smart device big brother - check out AppSpy's video below and let us know what you think.
I saw this.....I have no idea what its suppose to do. But its great to see them do this.
"...just not the Nintendo system which you might have assumed!"
I assumed the Game Boy, as that's what's shown in the picture and says in the title.
Maybe I'm searching wrong, but I can't find any gameplay material of this.
But porting this to the Game Boy is such wasted time. The target group is practically zero.
Personally, I still play the GameBoy/GBA more than the new 3ds. Why? It matches my lifestyle, straight to the point one-game-at-time portable. I still buy GB games from time to time.
I'm excited to witness the release of the credit card sized GameBoy coming October.
I actually have the GameBoy from that video right here with me and I'm waiting for the developer of Progress, Tim Garbos, to claim it back
@OddworldCrash Based on what It looks like, the Target group is no one. Its very hard to tell what the game is about, especially when the creator talks about future releases in 5 to 10 years.
Whatever..... ( actually I am a bit "Jelli" )
This is awesome. Still own my original gameboy!
