Emulation by GameBoy-Online


"8 Bitty Games" is a series of small games developed for the original Game Boy system.

Orb Catcher is a remake of the very first video game I made, a Flash game I made in high school by the same name.

In Orb Catcher, you control a bouncy ball around a field of orbs. You must collect 500 points before the timer runs out! Thankfully there are powerups (and powerdowns) that can help or hinder. You'll have to find out what they do on your own ;).

Orb Catcher was made using the Game Boy Development Kit and the Game Boy Tile/Map Designer, and can be played on any Game Boy emulator or flashed onto a Game Boy cartridge.

How To Play

Move the ball around! Collect orbs! Items can help!(?)

Get 500 points before time runs out. Try to get the best time!


You can download the ROM files below to play in a Game Boy emulator or flash onto a cartridge. The games are available via itch.io. Even though the games are free, please consider leaving a tip on the download page.
