OpenLara is an amazing GBA port of the 1996 classic Tomb Raider

Posted on 18th Jan 2022 @ 5:17 AM

In what everyone would think impossible, a very clever programmer has ported the open source version of Tomb Raider for the original Playstation to the Gameboy Advance.  And all you need to enjoy it is the game files and your very own EZ Flash Omega Cartridge.

In what the developer describes as an alpha version, OpenLara for the GBA currently only offers 3 levels of the game and excludes original FMV sequences, however the developer has expressed their intent to continue work on the GBA port by improving performance, trimming cutscenes down and more. The author goes on to state that they expect the complete package will be able to fit within a 256Mbit ROM.  And once released should work on the EZ Flash Omega flashcarts.
