Take a look at PicSmalltalk, this is a smalltalk which generate Pic 
It has not all the facility of smalltalk like garbage collector or 
method lookup,
but it seem easy to retarget the code generator to some kind of 
I would name it a macro assembler with a smalltalk syntax.

LittleSmalltalk in version 4 is also small but you need a malloc library 
on your

PocketSmalltalk is perhaps the bigger of the three but will fit in 64k, 
it also need
a malloc library.

Have a nice project.
