• PostBot homebrew retro-ga

    From bencollver@VERT/CASTLERO to All on Wed Sep 21 20:56:00 2022
    Today i discovered PostBot, a free, homebrew game for the GameBoy and emulators. It made for a fun rainy-day activity. The premise of the
    game is that you are programming a robot to maneuver around obstacles
    and deliver mail to mailboxes. The game has eight levels, each level progressively more difficult than the prior level. The robot has six operations: turn left, turn right, move forward, deliver mail, do F1,
    and do F2. The main program has space for 10 operations. F2&F2 each
    have space for 5 operations, and recursion is allowed. Clear a level
    by delivering mail to every mailbox on that level.

    The game can be played in a browser-based GameBoy emulator, and there
    is also an option to download the ROM, which is roughly 64KB in size.
    I played it in the zboy emulator on FreeDOS. For download links, see
    below.

    Today i discovered PostBot, a free, homebrew game for the GameBoy and

    On the postbot page, the guy links to two places where you can play it in a web browser.. One of them has three other homebrew games.. I've been meaning to search for them to find roms of those as well.

    Excellent find.

    Awesome, will check them out. They are different ones, unfortunately.

    By the way, there's a Grimace's Birthday Gameboy Color game from McDonalds, if you haven't seen it yet! https://grimacesbirthday.com/

    You can download the ROM on archive.org, even :)
