The Nintendo Game Boy might have been discontinued for many years now, but that doesn’t mean the portable console lacks any love. No sir, Imran Nazar has decided to use his rather extensive programming know-how to build a Game Boy emulator using nothing but JavaScript – in an effort to showcase the progress of the language to date, including the kind of wonders that HTML5′s canvas tag is able to achieve. Apart from that, this has also put to bed thoughts of whether one can fully emulate a Game Boy from the processor directly. Currently, there is a nigh-playable version of Tetris, although we do hope that other 8-bit classics will be ported soon.
