    Whether it's a rule, or merely an inevitability, if it exists, someone can and will port DOOM to it. YouTuber Stacksmashing has brought the game to a new and rather unexpected platform: the new Nintendo Game & Watch handheld. He details his experiences in porting the 1993 game to the system, which included having to use a version of DOOM that removes textures and replaces them with simple outlines and flat colors, in order for the game to fit onto the Game & Watch's very small storage. Getting DOOM to a playable state on such an odd system won't be the end of his exploits, either, as Stacksmashing and fellow coder Konrad Beckmann are working together on releasing a homebrew creation tool for the new Game & Watch.

    Doom is great and all, but how about Gameboy?

    Thanks, but he's not just 'someone' btw, Thomas Roth is a «security researcher and consultant from Germany, focused on embedded systems, secure communication and mobile security», and also named as one of the 30 under 30 in Technology 2018 by Forbes Europe.

    Just for the info.
