Mobile Game Progress is being ported to the Game Boy

Yes, the original one.  The one released in 1989 with the monochrome green screen, that ended up being roughly the size of a brick.  Here’s a video of developer talking about why he decided to port the game to Nintendo’s classic system:

So what was his reason?  Put simply, it was a joke.  One of his friends presented him with a Game Boy port of the game as a birthday present, and he liked the idea enough to continue it from there.  He says it’s also about making the most of limited hardware.

Perhaps this is a route more devs will go down in future?  Maybe the love for classic video game systems might lead to similar games being ported back to the NES, SNES, Mega Drive or other consoles of the era?

What do you think?
