New game released: DMG Deals Damage! [Cartridge+ROM]

Post by drludos » Wed Oct 23, 2019 6:38 am

Hi Everyone!

As you may know, this year the Game Boy console turned 30!

To celebrate the 30th anniversary of our beloved Game Boy, I made a new game titled "DMG Deals Damage."

Image

You play as a Game Boy who must smash other mobile devices who stole her birthday cake! It's a kind of action-roguelite game with 30 rooms to fight through, including 4 bosses to defeat.

The game is playable online for free here (with free ROM and manual download):

It’s also available on cartridge if you want to play it on a real Game Boy:

I hope you’ll enjoy it!

Looks great, reminds me of GB games circa 1993

Thanks! It's actually a 32kb game (no bank switching to be able to release it on cartrdige), so yes, it does look like earlier GB games :)

Indeed. It really has the charm from GB games from around these years. I hope you continue to create more games like this.

Cheers!!

Thanks! I really love the GB (the DMG was my first console!) so I do intend to keep making games for it (among other retro consoles)!
