In Japan in 1996 and in North America in 1998 (a year later in Europe), the old Game Boy was accidentally shot by a small game called Pokémon. The grandfather of Nintendo handheld games suddenly had a new life, but after the game was released in the West, a new game console-Game Boy Color appeared a few weeks later. Many people have captured our first place on this excellent system. Pokemon.

The color update to the original DMG-001-which has previously been revised in a smaller form of the Game Boy Pocket-has been a long time, but after 9 years of Game Boy Color At last Provides handheld Nintendo gamers with the appropriate upgrades they have been waiting for.

GBC is appropriately released in a variety of eye-catching colors and is fully backward compatible with the existing Game Boy library. Many dual “black car” games can also run flawlessly on the original monochrome console, although the sexier color exclusive games use transparent ink cartridges that allow you to get a glimpse of the circuit board inside. Before the Game Boy Advance appeared in 2001, GBC quickly established its own excellent software library. The three-year life cycle is relatively short, especially compared to its predecessor, but we are loyal fans of this gorgeous system and its impressive-forgotten library.

The handheld version of the popular PlayStation game “Game Boy Color Driver” has undergone a top-down transformation to make it consistent with the original GTA game.

Lara Croft’s first foray into Game Boy Color, a side-action platform game, saw the nominal assailant of the grave scrambling to climb the wall, spreading in the vines The ceiling swings, crossing the canyon to find treasure, etc. It’s a slow-paced adventure, but there are some impressive animations — in general, a decent 8-bit interpretation of Croft’s 3D adventure.

Kirby Tilt'n'Tumble (GBC)Kirby Tilt'n' Tumble (GBC)

announcer: Nintendo / Developer: Hal Lab

Release date: April 11, 2001 (United States)

Released in Japan in 2000 and released in North America the following year, this GBC derivative product has never landed on the PAL coast. The cartridge contains a tilt sensor that allows you to control Kirby by rolling Kirby in a horizontal position and guiding it to the target. Kirby tilts’n’ roll Not groundbreaking, but it is an interesting Kirby antique, worth playing if you can find it.

However, please make sure you play it in regular GBC or GBA-accelerometers don’t like to be upside down in GBA SP, and you won’t plug it into Game Boy Player.

announcer: Ubisoft / Developer: Ubisoft

Release date: March 29, 2000 (United States) / July 24, 2000 (UK/EU)

Rayman’s Game Boy Color port definitely has its charm, but it also has its troubles. Stiff controls, chaotic layouts, and some disturbing glitches spoil the original experience. It’s still fun and provides the motivation to play again when it’s done, but it’s a port, it sacrifices a lot of content in order to transition to a handheld device, and it feels lighter compared to Ubisoft. The mascot is more famous platform game.

Master Shockwave: The Enemy Below (GBC)Master Shockwave: The Enemy Below (GBC)

announcer: Smooth / Developer: Smooth

Release date: September 24, 2000 (United States) / October 27, 2000 (UK/EU)

Integration of new and old elements Master Demolition: the enemy below Enough new twists to make it a valuable sequel to the stunning original. Of course, many of the same audio/video elements remain the same, but the new boss and open environment provide fans with a whole new experience. If you never gave the Blaster Master series a chance (and considering that the original NES is available through a Nintendo Switch Online subscription, and Switch owners don’t have much excuses), then this excellent Game Boy Color title is as good as any reason for stuck in.

announcer: Electronic art / Developer: Chickpea game

Release date: November 16, 2001 (United States) / November 16, 2001 (UK/EU)

Contrary to the trend of low-quality movie licensing partners on handheld platforms, “Harry Potter” and “The Sorcerer’s Stone” are very reliable small role-playing games. In our opinion, it is running for the best Harry Potter game It is legal in evs-of course in the top three (not to say that the series has many cold classics, but still so). Its turn-based RPG gameplay perfectly fits Harry’s magical world of magic, and is still one of the best interpretations of the source material of the video game format. Flipendo!

Release date: July 1, 2001 (United States) / March 30, 2001 (UK/EU)

Legend of River King 2 is a fantastic adventure game focusing on fishing, and it is a portable game. There are many things to see and do, catching bugs, picking flowers and diving into the central hook of the last game. The two different routes in the story also add important replay value to avid anglers.Fishing fans and RPG fans will be a sensation, although those who come to fish atmosphere The experience will be fully utilized; the soundtrack, setting and sense of scale can all work together to capture one of the most fascinating seaside summer scenery ever made with an 8-inch cassette tape.

Even after all these years, this is a real gain.
