I used Gameboy-online (an open source html5 emulator) last year to run my gameboy entry (made with gbdk) on the web

Thanks for playing. It's hard to tell whats going on without a proper explanation, but you did quite ok.
It's about managing input (targets) output (mails) displayed at the bottom, and consumption (power/money/upgrading the pc).
I honestly didn't think anyone would really play this through. Once you figured out how things work it's over pretty fast but I expected people to leave before reaching that point :D
Seems the clicking is bugged. Incidentally the most important button "?" doesn't seem to do anything.
I guess the game would be to click the blocks to stop them from getting bigger? but due to the not working click-code i can't be too sure.
Actually it's not that hard, and pretty similar in GBDK anyways. There are some basic helper functions but most of the work is setting registers directly anyways. Also GBDK creates a big overhead for function calls and stuff like that. Once you go past the hello world it can get pretty frustrating. Give it a try!
Hey there, thanks for the feedback.
If you want to look at gameboy development, the setup used is fine for getting your feet wet, but you should ultimately switch to assembly as soon as possible. The used compiler (SDCC) and the library (GBDK) are full of quirks and bugs that mess up your perfectly fine C-code so working with it can be quite an bad experience. (Being new to gameboy dev I spent hours searching for bugs in my code that actually weren't my fault in the end, just as a warning before you step in). Nothing beats seeing your own game run on the real hardware though!
As far as I know, basecode is allowed here AND at LudumDare as well. The only rule at LD is that the basecode you're using has to be publicly available to all other contestants as well for free before the competition starts.
Sadly crashes for me, right after the introscreen. Win7 64bit, both fullscreen and windowed.
Edit: New version fixed the error for me.
A short and relaxing experience. Love the theme and setting.
