The Game Gear portable game system shares a lot of its architecture with the SMS and is supported by devkitSMS. So why not? Here comes DONKEY.GG!

The main difference is the screen size. While the SMS typically displays a 256x192 pixel image, the Game Gear resolution is only 160x144. It feels a bit tight when compared directly:

For a brief moment I thought of moving the score indicators and life indicators to the visible part of the screen, but I felt it would be distracting and make the play area too crowded. In the end I only kept the score indicator in the upper right corner.

The remaining number of lives, instead of being permanently displayed, is now briefly shown at the beginning of the game and after loosing a live.

Remaining lives display Game screen Game screen

For the mode selection menu, I added horizontal scrolling to the original screen and made other small adjustments (car position, text length and placement, etc).
