HDB: Add engine for Hyperspace Delivery Boy #1805
This adds a new engine to run the Monkeystone game Hyperspace Delivery Boy. This work was done under the Google Summer of Code 2019 program, as described here: https://wiki.scummvm.org/index.php?title=Summer_of_Code/GSoC_Ideas_2019#Hyperspace_Delivery_Boy
HDB was originally built for the PocketPC and later on ported to Windows and Linux. This engine was originally built using the source code of the Windows version, and support for the PocketPC version was added later. As such, it has been thoroughly tested with the Windows data files, but not so with the data files for the other platforms. However, it should work similarly for the Linux data files which have been tested to a brief extent.
The PocketPC data files however will most likely not work. The source code for the PocketPC version had a number of breaking changes, and as such, the PocketPC support for the engine is still in development. It might work, but one should expect crashes.
Most of the levels are known completable with the exception of a few at the end which hasn't been playtested.
