Remember those days when snake game on a tiny screen of a Nokia phones was a fun? Fun is something anyone can imagine at any place using any available resources. With fast growth of cellphone technology, screens have gone wider and wider, giving us more roam to play huge games on large screen using high speed compatible processors and memory.
Yet, even in the presence of all these extraordinary Smartphones, Tablets, Phablets, Laptops, Xbox and Gaming Consoles, we are able to see a game running on a tiny wearable. Yes, its Apple watch 2, a wearable with a tiny screen, extremely impractical gaming device, but Gabrel O’Flaherty-Chan made a Game Boy Emulator for it.
The game boy emulator is named after Pokémon’s Giovanni, the wrist-worn Game Boy emulator crams Nintendo’s original gaming portable into an Apple Watch Series 2. It doesn’t play the games at full speed but it is fully functional. To start the game buttons are given underneath the game display. You can swipe right, left, Up and down on the screen and to press A, you need to press the right side of the watch’s face.
Apple watchOS didn’t use any of such graphics design, so it wasn’t an easy task to keep it moving on the watch. Yet the project is a neat proof of concept.
Does,t seem that the game will make it to the app store, But if u want to try it you can always download it at GitHub link.
Though you need very tiny fingers to enjoy it fully, it does not have a key pad attached beneath like a Nokia phone.
