What a beautiful game. Excellent controls and lots of juicy effects. Looking forward to the full version!
Goodboy Galaxy DEMO
Single planet demo of our exploration platform game for Game Boy Advance (and PC and Switch!) - thanks to a successful Kickstarter campaign the full game is now in development!
Note: Changing language will reset the game. Web version doesn't run too well in Firefox.
The controls of the web version are:
- d-pad / arrows: walk/aim
- LB / A key: look [gba l]
- RB / S key: charge blast (when unlocked) [gba r]
- B button / Z key: fire [gba a]
- A button / X key: jump [gba b]
- menu / enter: pause / friend cards (when collected) [gba start]
The demo is 'Chapter Zero', and not planned as part of the main game (so it won't spoil anything). It was difficult to strike a good balance with a demo, and some things will definitely change in the full game, but we really hope to give you a good idea of the quality. (Please help us improve the game with your feedback!)
For the most dedicated secret-hunting players, your mission is to find Azure, a secret crossover character from the upcoming and beautiful indie platformer Orange Island. If you manage to find her and collect her friendship card, please let us know!
For best results, download the ROM and play with a flashcart or your favourite emulator. (A pre-configured PC version using RetroArch + mGBA is also available in the downloads)|
For more information please see our Kickstarter campaign or our website.

I have play your game I like what I play I can't wait to see what you do next I brought deom ver but had laptop die so I lose it but I did get to the demo it was fun. Keep up the good work it's not easy making a game anything can happen but kwon this team can do Leo gera.
This is amazing :) If your team ever makes a PC port, it would mean alot if there is either a x86 (32bit) or a UWP (ARM64) windows version available as well. Thank you so much and keep up the amazing work <3
Experiência irada, a simplicidade cria uma ótima empatia, principalmente para novos jogadores. Os puzzles são rápidos, tem uma boa dificuldade e o gráfico está incrível. Joguei com a ROM de GBA pelo Retroarch no XSS, ficou muito bom.
I noticed you write in European Portuguese and I got curious. Which language did you choose to play? English or Brazilian?
OMG is amazing! I didn't know about this game and and I absolutely want the physical copy for GBA.
I installed the demo ROM on 3DS, well done guys, the graphic, animations are incredible and the command very responsive.
I have a GBA SP I hope there will be no problems.
This is an absolutely charming game, with cute graphics and solid mechanics! :) I can't wait to purchase this someday!
May I ask what game engine you used to make this?
It is now my one of the favorite.
And with GBA support, it is AWESOME.
This is a pretty cute game! And I really love the frog character…whose name I forgot. But anyway, well done!
Eu achei tudo heueheuehhe
Hello there! I missed the Kickstarter but this is an instant fave! Is there any way I could buy a cartridge version since I cannot pledge? Would love to be able to play on my GBA SP! You guys are awesome for bringing back my fave console to life! :D
I had such a fun time with the demo! This is the kind of game I'd have grown up being obsessed with, and y'all captured that era of platformers excellently. Really looking forward to the full release! :D
Why, Just why??? Why is Jump bound on B, not A? Why do yoy do this to me?
It's 'A' on the GBA (rightmost button - B on the xbox layout) same as Mario and most platformers on the GBA, but you can remap them around in an emulator. We'll add an in-game swap to the full game if we can.
this game is so dang cool! but i wish a could change the controls.
Hi, How am I supposed to beat the first boss? The fight seems endless and my shots don't have any effect on the boss
Use the charge blast on their blocks so that they rush into the spikes, then you can shoot them while they're dazed.
Hello, Im the Editor In Chief for a game magazine based in Cuba and I would like to make Rik, the creator a small written interview if its possible. Thanks!
love the metroid vibe, well done, lookin forward to the full thing!
THIS IS SO AWESOME!!!! KUDOS! <
May I query if the rules of the internet have yet been applied to Goodboy Galaxy? If so, my condolences.
what is this supposed to mean? there are no rules
OMG it's even translated?! Great job
good game kinda like metroid but with super mario and luigi graphics
LOVE maxwell's falling animation lol
Gracias por la traducción al Español, hermano!!!
Thanks for the Spanish translation, bro!!!
'Chapter Zero' will be included in the switch version of the game ?
Can I plz beta test for chapter 1? 3ds cia?
I'm a backer, and I just finished the demo on my DSLite using an EZ Flash Omega and LOVED the entire experience! It played extremely well.
One request for the final game however would be to add support for the "boot with addon" function on the EZ Flash Omega, especially seeing as it's being recommended as a preferred method to play the game on original hardware. I missed being able to go from the game back to the card menu as I can with other games, rather than having to power down the system each time.
Also, after reading some of the comments below I wanted to add that I actually really enjoyed the segments where different equipment was lost. It was a unique way to get the brain working to get figure out how to get through those parts! It was also really satisfying to beat the boss once I figured out what to do.
Thanks so much! We'll look into adding support for this, though it might be impossible without an update to the EZ Flash firmware itself (as I believe the patch is intended for games that used the official SDK from back in the day). I'll have to investigate some more. :)
This game is so cool.The Chinese translation is great.
I will play it on my DSi.
Looking back at this game after a while. Still looks amazing! I recommend getting it translated into German just because it's a pretty common language, but that's just me.
I love the art keep it up
The gameplay is good.
Yo ho yohoou
i need a map too for the game please.
I feel like having a map of the area might help with avoiding getting lost, as I got a bit frustrated with this when playing. Apart from this, I really enjoyed the game.
What is the shard limit? I got 1036 shards, and I have no idea how high I could get.
I just heard about this at "Slope's Kickstarter News" YouTube video. It's a great little demo, and I've somewhat enjoyed playing it on an emulator on my Nvidia Shield TV.
Here are some of my thoughts:
- I can't get past the "no jumping" section. Without any built-in hints, I feel that these sections are a large barrier to entry for noobs like myself. They should be included in later sections (especially bonus/secret levels) rather than right at the start/the main game.
- It needs a save-game system. I don't want to have to play this demo from the beginning if I have to stop playing.
- Please consider releasing this, with a built-in emulator, so you can sell it as an .apk file at Google Play. I think more homebrew games for old systems could find more potential sales that way.
Thanks for the free demo though. I've told my friends in Japan about it and some of them will download and play it soon.
