What a peaceful day! As the sun sets and the moon begins to shine its light over the village, a young witch finishes her busy day of potion making by hanging her hat and going to bed. Her cat, Mona, doesn't want to go to bed though. She's more interested in the treats the Witch left out! But things don't go as planned when the Witch's hat falls on Mona's head and everything comes to life. Now she has to turn everything back to normal!

Mona and the Witch's Hat Deluxe is a homebrew game made for the Game Boy Color, and is a remake of the original Mona and the Witch's Hat from 2018. This "Deluxe" or "DX" version of Mona and the Witch's Hat features a brand new soundtrack, full color graphics, and new animations. It features the same four levels as the original version, and can be completed in about 20 minutes.

Made using GBDK and Zal0's ZGB, a small game engine for making Game Boy homebrew games.

Hey! I love the look of this game. Do you have any remaining cartridges left? It looks like Catskulll closed their store permanently, and I would love to play a physical version :)

Hi there, thanks for letting me know! No one notified me about it closing, so I'll reach out and see what's going on. If I hear anything back I'll let you know.

Thank you for responding! It just happened the other day without notice, so I was just curious! :)

I am also very interested to know, I was keeping an eye out for a restock and then noticed they abruptly closed up shop. Crazier thing is I found out via a German forum using translate on my iPhone lol.

This is so cute, I’d love seeing Mona in more levels causing more trouble

Thank you so much! I'm glad you enjoyed the game. :)
