Pokémon Red ROM hack brings some colour to Kanto

Pokemon Red ROM

ROM hacker, Drenn, has created a fan-made patch which adds both full colour and more detailed sprites to the well-loved monster catching RPG classic Pokémon Red.

FroggestSpirit colourised much of Kanto but had left the project incomplete, so Drenn completed the ROM with help from Danny-E 33’s graphics patch. This means that Pokémon Red, originally for the Game Boy, has both been colourised and includes sprites used in later Pokémon games.

The patch can be played via emulator or on the Game Boy Color using a compatible flashcard, and you can check it out here.
