Another GameBoy game that I thought was excellent is Dragon's Lair. It actually bares little resemblance to any other game in the series and this is because it is actually a conversion of the Spectrum platformer Roller Coaster. Elite simply changed some of the graphics but otherwise the game is the same. It's quite hard but worth persevering with and some of the graphics are superb.

Dragon's Lair Completed Game Boy

Ahhh.Never knew that...

Had prev.only seen Roller Coaster on Speccy on Opa-Opa's superb Weekend Gamer TV show, never knew it turne up on GB as Dragon's Lair.

Cheers's Laird.

An absolute must if you love games with a decent challenge and an awesome story line - Zelda - Links Awakening. It will always be one of my favorite games of all time!

Knew i had more GBC titles.

Try Perfect Dark on GBC.

Why?

Technically superb (huge adventure, has MP option, uses rumble pak, cutscenes have sampled speech, uses GB printer etc etc)., it's a prequel to N64 Perfect Dark.

Main game is an isometric 3D jaunt, sees you rescuing hostages, defusing bombs etc etc, but there's also a stack of mini-games:

Jungle chase (a Spy Hunter affair), River Crossing (side scrolling shooter) and Sniper Mode.

Great sound effects and speech and if you own the N64 original, you can use the transfer pack to unlock cheats etc.

Game is rock bloody hard mind!.



Also R-Type DX, Driver, Tomb Raider all said to be good.

Also:

Mission Impossible (Rebellions crack at a MGS style game).Look out for the 'Agent Organiser' feature which turns your GB into an address book, calculator, message sender and infa-red controller!

Evel Knievel (the Joe Danger of it's day)

I heard about Tom Clancy's passing. Not usually a fan but enjoyed the DreamCast version.

Crawfish did it, so it's as you'd expect a technical marvel in terms of what they've pulled off in terms of depth and ambition.Not your usual handheld fare either as it demands more of a long play session rather than a quick 10 min bash.

Glad to see some of the titles i've mentioned are getting some attention, the GB is not a device i'd put high in my all time fav.consoles, but getting a GB player for GC along with GBA+Micro really opened my eyes to some real gems.

Think after playing GB Perfect Dark and seeing what was achived on such primitive hardware, made Perfect dark 0 on 360 even more dissapointing.I know it had a difficult gestation, starting out on GC, then Xbox, then 360, but all formats far more powerful than the GB series, yet clearly game lacked the genius game design that went into the hand held game.

Proof if it were ever needed that raw hardware power is meaningless if you've not the ideas to make a decent game.
