SB Recommends Game Boy Color Games
A slightly upgraded version of the Game Boy that came out a good nine years after the mono's release. As the name implies, it can do color graphics, and has an easier-to-see screen. Much of the Color's library consists of ports and remakes of NES/SNES games. Most Color games will play on older Game Boy models in monochrome, but there were some later Color-only titles.
Balloon Fight GB
| Game Boy; Game Boy Color; Super Game Boy enhanced
The Blueberry Hill: Japan only colour version of Balloon Kid
, with the ability to save game progress. It's an extension of the Balloon Trip mode from Balloon Fight
, and is even more wonderful than that sounds.
Elevator Action EX
Loki Laufeyson: Obviously not as good as the masterpiece that is Elevator Action Returns
, it is, however, a lot better than the GBA's Elevator Action Old & New
. The best part is that the final stage of each area has no documents/keys/bombs to find, and you get to just charge to the exit as fast as you can, murdering lots of terrorists/gangsters along the way. The worst part is the useless grenade weapon. If you get lumbered with it (power-ups are random), you're pretty much guaranteed to lose a life.
The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening DX
(also on: 3DS VC, GB
gatotsu2501: Better than A Link to the Past
. Quite possibly better than any other game in the series.
is my favorite Zelda
game and one of the finest adventures ever released for any platform. It has loads of nostalgia value for me (being my first GBC game), but beyond that it has a dreamy, beautiful atmosphere, excellent pacing and a fine progression of difficulty. plus a nice, silly sense of humor about things (“You got Marin
! Is this your big chance…?”)
