A downloadable game

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

This is Atop the Witch's Tower WS, a port of the short, lovely ZZT game by John Thyer to the WonderSwan and WonderSwan Color. It also serves as a proof of concept for running ZZT games on the WonderSwan in general, as well as for the upcoming toolchain I'm working on.

This project wouldn't have been possible without the efforts of Dox, trap15, FluBBa, Godzil, GuyPerfect, Near, and many others who helped figure out the WonderSwan's mysteries; as well as developers who maintain important components of the toolchain, most notably TK Chia. Thank you! I would also like to thank jix and Tharo for the support and trust placed in me.

In addition, I'd like to personally thank the modern ZZT community for being awesome as always.

This is only the beginning of what can be done with the WonderSwan - stay tuned, or find out what's already being done!

Install instructions

Use a WonderSwan flashcart (at least 32KB SRAM) to run this game on physical hardware. Alternatively, you can use an emulator to run it on a PC - Mednafen and Ares will run the port with decent accuracy.

WonderWitch is not supported at this time, but an alternate WonderWitch version may be provided in the future.
