Play GTA V Grand Theft Auto Nintendo Game Boy
Sure, there was never an official Grand Theft Auto V release for the original Nintendo Game Boy, but that didn’t stop one programmer from getting the game to run…sort of. Put simply, it requires a special game cartridge with an integrated Wi-Fi module. Next, it had to be configured to stream video and play games in full resolution at 20fps. What he ended up with is something that might be hard on the eyes.



The most important part of this mod is three pieces of software: a Python script that takes video data and converts it to tiles ready to be used by the Game Boy; an Arduino code for the ESP8266 capable of receiving the data via WiFi before transferring it to the Game Boy when requested; and the code running on the Game Boy, which is written in Assembly for timing as well as efficiency purposes.

With this new demo, many other demos almost become obsolete. I can display anything and I can control anything that can be displayed on and controlled by my PC. Of course, the interface and image are almost unusable this way, so some dedicated implementations might still be interesting. And also, I did not touch audio here, which unfortunately was a big oversight by me when designing this cartridge,” said the programmer.
