    Forum Forgotten Game Boy Gems

    Chris Covell has written up a page with 10 short reviews of one of the most obscure Game Boy games! They are: Trip World, Chalvo 55, Peetan, Noobow, Balloon Kid/Balloon Fight GB/Hello Kitty World (Famicom), Heiankyo Alien, Booby Boys, Ca Da, Karamuu-Cho No Daijken, & Ikari No Yousai 2.

    The Game Boy never got much credit as a proper game machine with decent games. Oh, sure, games like Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening were miniature masterpieces, but by about a year or two after the GB's release, it had fallen out of favour from me and any other self-respecting gamer, earning the title LameBoy for its blurry, low-contrast monochrome screen. That didn't change until the late '90s, when I finally caved in and bought a Super Game Boy for my SNES. This move let me rediscover some great games from the NES' little brother, and saved my eyesight in the process.

    If you're like me, then, there are probably dozens of great GB games that you have passed over for flashier entertainment from the 16-bit and 32-bit systems. So why not take the time to slow down, and appreciate some of the cream of the obscure crop of GB releases? Most of these games were only released in Japan, and have very little hype or popularity to show for their efforts. I promise that there'll be at least one game that you'll fall in love with in this list below. So let's get busy!
