Peanut-GB is a Game Boy emulator. Do you want to play your original Game Boy cartridge on your NumWorks calculator? This is the app for you!
How do i use it?
This app requires a digital copy of a Game Boy cartridge to work. Think of this app as a virtual Game Boy console: in order to play, you’ll also need a virtual cartridge! Don’t worry though, it’s super easy to get going:
- Download peanutgb.nwa
- Get a Game Boy ROM file on your computer. For example, you can use this free flappyboy.gb ROM file.
- Plug your NumWorks calculator to your computer using an USB cable
- Head to NumWork’s app loader
- Select the
peanutgb.nwafile and then
flappyboy.gb(or any other
- Click install
How do I play?
It’s quite obvious, given how the NumWorks’ keypad looks just like a Game Boy’s. Anyway, here’s a list:
|Game Boy controls||NumWorks|
Those hotkeys will modify the behavior of the emulator:
|1||Use the original Game Boy color palette|
|2||Use a pure grayscale palette|
|3||Use an inverted grayscale palette|
|+||Render on the entire screen|
|-||Render at a 1:1 scale|
You will not find any ROM file of official Nintendo games on this site. Even though it’s pretty easy to find some online, keep in mind that you are not allowed to download a ROM file of a cartridge you do not own.
