Are games supposed to be able to run on a gameboy or just be "gameboy like". If it's not supposed to run on a gameboy do we follow the same technical limitations? ie. 8-bit integers, 256 max tiles on screen ect.

i believe what they mean by gameboy theme is 8 bit graphics and dont make it something a gameboy wouldn't have ran. i.e Dont go off adding a green filter to your fps and call it a gameboy game. but i dont think you have to be as specific as having a tile limit, etc.

I've updated the front page just to make it more clear that you can use anything to make it, it's just "gameboy inspired" games
