Grand Theft Auto 2 - GameBoy Color

I heard that GTA2 was available for GameBoy Color. I wanted to get some information about this game, but nothing went beyond the odd 'this suxors...' and I couldn't find any screenshots of it, let alone any download links. So I used a... uh... special program, to download it. Even download locations for this game seemed hard to get, which suprised me, as there was about 300 copies of GTA:SA posted on this P2P file sharing server. And they were full things too, each being about a gigabyte in size! So anyway, I finally found it. If anyone wants some information or screenies on this game, just post and I'll get what you want.

Damn, you can't post images from your hard drive to the web. If anyone has a website, I would happily send the pics to them and then enter the pic's URL's on the web...

GTA/GTA2 on GBC are really just toned down versions of their PC/Console counterparts. Nothing really special, same view, the guy is really small, but it's surprisingly ok. icon14.gif

Why did it take you so long to find the rom? I found it in about 30 seconds. notify.gif

There is a page about it - found through Google search for "gta2 gameboy color" - on Spong, with a few screenshots.

 

 

 

If we could also cut out the discussion on d/ling it, that'd be great. wink.gif

That should be enough, eh? They're all from the first sector, mind you. GTA2 for GameBoy Color is way too hard for me to get past even the first Loonies mission! barf8bd.gif It just doesn't give GTA2 very much replay value, which is a bit unfortunate, because it could have been a huge hit and success.

 

QUESTION FOR FRED - THE SUPER ADMINISTRATOR: Hey Fred, why do you and the other administrators hate people even talking about dealing games illegaly? It's not like we're gonna put the URL to downloading it on the most popular forum and post a big neon sign picture above it that says 'download your free and illegal copy of GTA2 for GameBoy Color here'. I guess you're one of the softer admins, as the other ones would have gone squealing to the board, as if they were weenas, and then the board would have banned this topic by now if that happened. But anyway, keep up the good work, guys (or gals)!

Sssshhh! Discussing Warez is against the forum rules, you could get yourself banned. But I see the reason behind it, discussion would turn into links, and could attract certain members of the law... catspider.gif

Anyway, I agree, on GBC it is really hard, mainly because the guy walks so goddamn slow!

i'm actually surprised how easy it is to drive compared to the PC versions, it's like the car automatically straightens itself.

Yup ,both the original GTA and GTA 2 were released for the GBC ,although I don't think it would be easy to buy them ( ... <snip> ... ). If you'd like screenshots of either of those games ,just ask biggrin.gif.

I've never heard of anything like that being on the GBC. I didn't think the GBC would have enough memory or power for anything remotely similar to GTA. I wonder if the port is any better than GTA:Advance for the GBA. GTA:Advance was fun when I first bought but got annoying when sprites looked all alike and I couldn't figure out who to kill in the missions.

 

If GTA2 can be ported to Gameboy Color, would it be possible to make a free-roaming city game for the TI-89 calculator using simple crappy graphics?

Can I see some pics for GTA 1 for GBC please? I wonder if it looks just like GTA2 or worse..

Definitely do exist, I was 3rd programmer on Grand Theft Auto for the GameBoy working at Tarantula Studios/Rockstar part of Take 2 Interactive in Lincoln, UK.  We were given basic maps and specs from DMA designs the original creators for PC, so instead of being a port we had to rewrite it in GBZ80 assembler to be able to fit the huge game with all languages into the 8MB ROM.

Lee Hammerton left for Sony after that project so I ended up lead programmer on GTA2 for GameBoy Color think that was a 16MB ROM. Martin McKenzie was Head Programmer so got to write the mission system, while I got to fix the spawn engine and all the game AI (including inter-gang war stats and reaction responses).

I still got the source code filed away in my loft, I can probably dig out some screen shots as well as the hidden cheat section where you can choose your character as one of us developers :)

good luck doing that; take 2 is notorious for sending dmca (or cease and desist, i don't remember) to any sign of alpha, beta files and source code.
