A group of talented Better Call Saul fans have created an impressive video imagining what the television series may look like if it were adapted into a Nintendo Game Boy game.
Created by artist Lumpy Touch, along with 2bitcrook and branflakes, the video showcases the title screen, character select, and some gameplay from this hypothetical game. You can check out the intro of the project below, or take a full look at the video on YouTube.

The imaginary game has three playable characters: Jimmy, Kim, and Mike. The creators even assigned different statistics to each character, including Guts, Hustle, Authority, and Lawyer. Following the character select is a cutscene, complete with warbled 8-bit voices.
The level shown involves running through the desert, stomping on scorpions and collecting money. The video also recreates Mike’s sniping abilities and Jimmy and Howard’s boxing match from the show.
The music used in the video is sampled from a number of Game Boy and NES games, including Turok, Castlevania the Adventure, Trip World, and more. There’s also a Game Boy-ified version of the Better Call Saul theme used in the video.
Better Call Saul is in the middle of its sixth and final season right now. In last week’s episode, the show finally gave us the long-awaited cameos from Breaking Bad’s Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul. Speaking of Cranston and Paul, the two actors were just in Albuquerque to celebrate the unveiling of Walter White and Jesse Pinkman statues.
