Boktai The Sun Is in Your Hand ROM

boktai the sun is in your hand rom
When focusing on the main objectives, Boktai The Sun Is in Your Hand is about 10½ Hours in length. If you're a gamer that strives to see all aspects of the game, you are likely to spend around 22 Hours to obtain 100% completion.

There are 2 ways for gathering energy for your main weapon, the gun del sol, without being outside in the sunlight or using a blacklight.

1) Go to an area in the game and harvest solar nuts by beating enemies and opening treasure chests. Once you have 30 or so solar nuts, you can comfortably move through any level. Each solar nut replenishes some energy for your gun del sol.

2) The other way to get energy is by using the luna lens as your weapon. When you use the luna lens, you don't use any energy, so you can use the luna lens near those green crystals that sparkle to reveal orange, green, or black fairies. The orange ones give you energy for your gun del sol, so you can get your gun del sol's battery completely filled up without using any energy. 

Using an Emulator with the Sunlight Patch

With the patch, you can change the sunlight whenever you want, you can even have it at max, wich rarely happens on console, unless you're using special items and such, but it's not important for now.

You need to download and install Visual Boy Advance and then load the rom.

Additional Information

Boktai: The Sun is in Your Hand is an action-adventure role-playing video game released by Konami for the Game Boy Advance in 2003, and the first game in the Boktai series. The player takes the role of Django, a vampire hunter, who uses a weapon called the “Gun Del Sol” (Solar Gun), that fires bolts of sunlight at enemies. The game made novel use of a light sensor on the cartridge which encouraged playing parts of the game in direct sunlight.

The game’s story takes place in a time period near the end of the world, called the Age of Darkness. The story features the appearance of undead creatures after the natural cycle of life and death was broken. People quickly began dying due to the use and misuse of “Dark Matter”, a type of energy that corrupts and destroys life. Those who survived quickly became prey to dark creatures called “Immortals”, beings composed of Dark Matter at the cellular level.

The game’s cartridge has a photometric light sensor which measures light exposure. In order to charge the in-game solar weapons, the player must take their Game Boy Advance (GBA) outside in the daytime (as verified by the light sensor). If the player’s gun battery runs out of light reserves and there is no sunlight available, then the player must avoid conflicts with enemies or find an in-game “Solar Station” to recharge.

Before a game is started, the player is prompted to set their current time and time zone. The game can then estimate when the sun will rise and set, and simulates the position of the sun inside the game. The player has an advantage during the daytime as vampires cannot be exposed to sunlight. Sunlight also affects the world around the main character – an example is a Solar Tree, a tree that is being damaged by the darkness of the Immortals, and can be cured by playing the game in the sunlight. The outdoor game environment also includes bird chirp sound effects in the morning and a soft orange glow around sunset.
