Last week was the 20th anniversary of the release of the Game Boy in Japan. To celebrate we want you to create your own original Classic Game Boy game. This means an original game that did not exist.

Your challenge entry must include the title screen and at least one in-game screen. You may include extra in-game screens if you want.

Canvas Size - 160 (width) x 144 (height) per screen. Make sure you submit all of your screens together on the same canvas. Minimum 2 screens.
Colours - Use only colours from the provided palette (you may also use transparency between screens):

Transparenecy - Optional. Only use transparency between your screens, as stated above.
Animation - No.


Nintendo's Original Gameboy used 4 levels of grey only. This challenge is a celebration of the Gameboy. The palette is 'look and feel', some screens are yellower, others realm into ochers and browns. Just work with this green, k.

The challenge thread will have all the challenge updates. The thread is also a great place to post your WIPs.
