Your name is MARY. You are a WITCH, and you find your perspective compacted to the size of a small handheld!

This is Atop the Witch's Tower GB, a port of the short, lovely ZZT game by John Thyer to the GBC (with debatable support for the original GB). It also serves as a proof of concept for running ZZT games on the GBC more broadly.

This project wouldn't have been possible without over two decades of research and toolchain development from the GB homebrew community. Special thanks to the gbdk-2020 team, ISSOtm, Calindro, PinoBatch, and many others who supported me on this journey.

In addition, I'd like to personally thank the ZZT community for being awesome, as well as AntonioND for inspiring this tour de force porting project in the first place.

This is only the beginning of what can be done with ZZT on the GB - stay tuned... or try building something yourself!

Install instructions

Use a GB/GBC flashcart or an Analogue Pocket to run this game on physical hardware. Alternatively, you can use an accurate emulator to run it on a PC - I recommend SameBoy for doing so.
