Re: Time to brush up the Gameboy/GBC Hidden Gems list

I remember X-Scape being largely brought up in the press when it popped up as a spirital sequel of sorts.

I should just find someone with it on here or ebay and just snap it up as it's cheap. This time around since getting a GB again sure I want some old games I loved but I also want to focus on new games I've never played or stuff I did have for a bit but never got close to finished to get some value from it.

The trick is me finding something that is fun I haven't touched as I've messed with quite a few of them over the years. I really don't care if they're old or not, as long as the style works for me and age haven't made the titles annoying.

Pretty sure I said I had KOF96, Samurai Spirits 3, and Super Dodgeball from Japan inbound, all new stuff. I'm also thinking from a list I've been working up that's a mix of rehash, rehash far from finished or new. I've never had or near finished Mario Tennis, Resident Evil, Microsoft Pinball Arcade, Colin McRae (rally), Indy Infernal Machine, Toki Tori, Commander Keen, Blaster Master, Duke Nukem, MGS, and Wendy Every Witch Way. For the old GB - Bonk's Adventure or Revenge so far. I know there's plenty from stuff like Avenging Spirit to Sword of Hope and more but I'd want to research more first.

There's a lot out there, it's kind of hard to sift through and since people tend to not like or turn in GB stuff, it's hard to find a $3 beater to just try for the hell of it. Locally I did see just up the street Lock n Chase and Deadheat Scramble for old GB, Lufia for GBC too though I doubt I'd bother on that as Lufia never did it for me on SNES.

Nothing spiritual about it, it's a direct sequel. Returning characters and everything, aswell as very similar gameplay mechanics.

Off the top of my head for those platforms... look at The Bugs Bunny Crazy Castle series, Mickey Mouse: Magic Wands!, Monster Rancher Explorer, and The Real Ghostbusters. I'm sure there's plenty more puzzle platformers on those systems I'm forgetting.

It's already been brought up but most definitely Shigeru Miyamoto's Mole Mania.

I recently started playing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Radical Rescue for the original Gameboy. What a cool game! The gameplay is a metroid-style adventure where the player must explore a vast underground map. When the payer unlocks new turtles, each one has a new power that lets the player reach a new area of the map.

I remember that, such a departure from the first two (which I currently do have.) I should try and find that at some point as they all were good turtle games. Shame TMNT stuff much since the 16bit era has been fairly awful for the most part.
