The Game Boy Color could display 4 different colors (there was an awful red and yellow palette...)
4 Colors, what's so hard to understand? Look at the pixels, if there's more than 4 color values you're doing it wrong
alright man, i just wasn't sure if we were supposed to go by limitations of the original game boy hardware or the GBC hardware, thanks for your help
Look at the end of this talk to get "thy this is so hard" https://itch.io/jam/gbjam-5/topic/40657/how-is-this-working. Also don't assume that we all know how these gameboy things worked...
