The "Wolfenstein 3D" was reportedly seen with a Game Boy Color version using a custom game board along with a co-processor chip. The game was further noted on multiple platforms including the Game Boy Advance and 3DOs. The game reportedly takes up 123k of the 128k memory of the gaming device.

"Wolfenstein 3D" Is Surprisingly Fluid And Playable On The Device

It should be noted that the Homebrew software developer Anders Granlund was the one who produced the Game Boy Color version of the "Wolfenstein 3D". Furthermore, it has been revealed that "Wolfenstein 3" also runs smoothly on the product with a slightly more powerful hardware than the 8-bit processor on the Nintendo Entertainment System, Digital Trends reported.

Previously, "Wolfenstein 3D" was ported to several come consoles including the Atari Jaguar. Later on, a heavily censored port came to the 16-bit Super NES that removed the original "Wolfenstein 3D" German Shepherd enemies in lieu of giant mutant rats.  "Wolfenstein 3D" also came to the Game Boy Advance in 2002.

Granlund reportedly faced difficulties porting "Wolfenstein 3D" on an 8-bit platform with a maximum resolution of 160x144 pixels. Eventually, Granlund opted to craft the custom game board with a KE04, MBC1 memory mapper and an AM29F040 EEPROM.

"Wolfenstein 3D" Was Also Modded for a Canon Printer

In other news, it has been revealed that "Wolfenstein 3D" was modded along with "Doom". Apparently, both games have been noted to work on several unlikely devices. It has been noted that "Wolfenstein 3D" may also work on Canon Printers and TI calculators, among others, according to report.

"Wolfenstein 3D" is reportedly equipped with the ARM Cortex-MO running at 48MHz as well. The chip has been noted with more power than the Intel 386 CPU on MS-DOS. In addition, Granlund has reportedly revealed that the whole set-up may only be powered with the Game Boy Color's batteries. A Reddit user reportedly praised Granlund for his technical skills.
