    I remove some sentences to let it describe the hack is all about and not pander to woke western political statements

    For some unknown reason, the site claimed my account doesn’t exist, so I recreated it using my E-mail and wanted to check if a small edit works just as fine.

    Due to the fact that CajeASM hasn't been updated by me for many years, still has some odd bugs regarding instruction counter and due to the fact that (nowadays) better alternatives exist now, I've decided to delete this tool from this website. An alternative assembler I can recommend is bass, currently maintained by ARM9. To be found here: https://github.com/ARM9/bass

    Upon further play, I discovered this hack broke an integral system to the game (the dash function).

Gimmick Land

Game Boy

Game Description:

Gimmick Land is an role playing game for the Game Boy.

Translation Description:

Gimmick Land for the GBC serves as the unreleased prototype to Tomato Adventure, an RPG developed by AlphaDream for the GBA. The game was fully finished and intended for release, but Nintendo asked AlphaDream to rework the contents of Gimmick Land and incorporate them into an upgraded experience on their latest Game Boy iteration. While Tomato Adventure would go on to see a Japanese release, Gimmick Land would never see any official release. Before it was leaked online as a part of the September 2020 “Nintendo Gigaleak”, the only public documentation of the game that existed were two screenshots.

This is an unofficial English translation of Gimmick Land that includes a translated:

  • Main Script
  • Item and Gimmick names and descriptions while in battle
  • Enemy names and dialogue in battle
  • Location names on overworld map, and when entering a sub-area
  • Certain Gimmick graphics

While this translation is currently labeled as “unfinished”, a very large majority of it has been translated. Everything that provides essential context to beating the main game has been translated. While there are some parts that are not translated, if you have a basic understanding of how simple RPGs function, or if you have ever played Tomato Adventure, you should have no trouble figuring out what certain things do.
