This is our entry for the Game Boy Jam 5 (#GBJAM 5)

A little monkey is trying to get his way home. He gets a banana for only weapon. But not just any banana. This is the ultimate teleporter boomerang banana, fully filled with strong power. Stunt your enemies, swap position, grab items, and find the exit of each levels.

We recommend to use Chrome for playing this game since we notice few issues with some other browsers (blurry rendering and/or no game controller support).

can be played with a game controller (recommended) or the keyboard.

  • D-PAD (keyboard WASD) : move, aim
  • A button (K key) : jump
  • B button (L key) : aim and throw banana / teleport

The team:

The development was made using Pixelbox which is a small JavaScript framework for tile based game prototyping.

update 23/10/2016:
Added a speedrun mode to the game.

What resolution are you using? How do you get the game boy screen pixel effect without surpassing 160x144 px?

The screen canvas is scaled by 4.
To replicate the dot matrix effect of the Gameboy screen, I just added a semi-transparent grid overlay on top.
