In Japan in 1996 and North America in 1998 (and a year later in Europe), due to a small game called Pokémon, the old Game Boy accidentally shot. The grandfather of Nintendo’s handheld games suddenly has a new life, but in the West, a few weeks after the game’s release, the arrival of a new game console-Game Boy Color-is on this excellent game console. Many of us Caught our first Pocket Monster.

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 has launched a series of eye-catching colors and is fully backward compatible with the existing Game Boy library. Many double “black cart” games can also be played well on original monochrome consoles, although the sexier “color exclusive” games use transparent ink cartridges that give you a glimpse of the 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 when compared to its predecessor, but we are loyal fans of this gorgeous system and its impressive-forgotten library.

announcer: GT Interactive Software / Developer: Crayfish interaction

Release date: May 16, 2000 (United States) / 2001 (UK/EU)

As a handheld version of the popular PlayStation game, the Game Boy Color driver has undergone a top-down transformation to make it consistent with the original GTA game. It has a satisfying and diversified gameplay, which can play a good role on relatively moderate hardware. It captures the harsh nature of the stylish PS1 original game, and provides fans with a way to push the game to reality. Opportunities in the world.

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

announcer: Nintendo / Developer: HAL laboratory

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 guide Kirby to control him by rolling Kirby in a horizontal position. Kirby Tilt’n’Tumble Not groundbreaking, but it is an interesting Kirby antique, and if you can find it, it is worth playing.

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.

Bomberman Max: Red Challenger and Blue Champion (GBC)Mike Bomberman: Red Challenger and Blue Champion (GBC)

Release date: May 14, 2000 (United States)

Divided into two games-you play as the blue champion Bomberman and the red challenger Max-Bomberman Max joined Charaboms, a top-notch multiplayer game and some cute demos in the classic Bomberman game on Hudson A Pokémon-style spin was performed in the game. Everyone likes Bomberman, right?

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, confusing layouts, and some disturbing glitches make an otherwise good experience worse. It’s still fun, and it provides some motivation to play it again after it’s finished, but in order to transition to a handheld device, it sacrifices a lot of content and feels quite light compared to Ubisoft’s more famous platform game with a mascot.

Oh Yugi! Dark Duel Story (GBC)Oh Yugi! The Story of Dark Duel (GBC)

announcer: Konami / Developer: Konami

Release date: March 18, 2002 (United States) / March 1, 2003 (UK/EU)

The third game of the dueling monster series, Konami’s Yu-Gi-Oh! “Dark Duel Story” is the first Yu-Gi-Oh! The game released in the West (obviously) is the first in a series of special series of trading card fighters. With compelling art and link cable multiplayer, the series will grow into a very successful and very long game series based on comics.

Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (GBC)Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (GBC)

announcer: Electronic art / Developer: Chickpea game

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

“Harry Potter” and “The Philosopher/Sorcerer’s Stone” have bucked the trend of inferior film license bundling on handheld platforms. This is a very sturdy small role-playing game, and in our opinion, this It is undoubtedly the run of the best Harry Potter game EV-certainly in the top three (not to say that the series has many cold classics, but still so). Its turn-based RPG game is very suitable for Harry’s magical wizarding world, and it is still one of the best interpretations of the original material in the form of video games. Flipendo!

Harvest Month 3 (GBC)Harvest Moon 3 (GBC)

announcer: Natsume / Developer: Natsume

Release date: November 14, 2001 (United States)

Harvest Moon 3 faces some difficulties. Although it can provide some top-notch farming simulations and eventually introduce the marriage system to the portable series, this game could have provided more features. The core mechanics that you know and love are all there and working well, but the overall packaging feels like nothing more than a re-release of the previous Game Boy Color entry.

If you haven’t played any of the early portable Harvest Moon games, then this may be the game you want to play, but if you are a veteran of its predecessors, don’t expect to go beyond the basics.

Legend of the River King 2 (GBC)Legend of River King 2 (GBC)

announcer: Natsume / Developer: Natsume

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 worth seeing and doing, including catching insects, defloration and diving, which are the hooks of the last game’s shooting center. The two different routes in the story also add considerable replay value to avid anglers.Fishing enthusiasts and RPG enthusiasts will have a great time, even though those are for atmosphere You will get the most benefit from the experience; the soundtrack, background and sense of scale work together to present one of the most fascinating seaside summer depictions ever on an 8-bit cassette.

A real gain, even after so many years.

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)

The fusion of old and new elements endows Master Shockwave: The enemy below Enough new twists and turns to make it a worthy 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 have never given the Blaster Master series of games a chance (and Switch owners don’t have much excuses, considering that the original NES is available through a Nintendo Switch Online subscription), then this excellent Game Boy Color title is anything stuck The reason is.

Dragon Ball Z: Legendary Super Warrior (GBC)Dragon Ball Z: Legendary Super Warrior (GBC)

announcer: Information / Developer: Ban Presto

Release date: November 8, 2002 (United States) / June 30, 2002 (UK/EU)

A strategic turn-based card fighter, “Dragon Ball Z: Legendary Super Warrior” was launched in 2002 (first in Europe, very interesting), and brought the series of colorful characters to GBC in a completely decent card fighter. .
