The GBA thread
« on: September 24, 2013, 12:10:51 PM »
:1: No dedicated GBA thread yet either?

Cannot believe i'm doing this, creating a thread praising Nintendo, lol, but i do love my GBA.

Right i'm going to start the ball rolling with a game that never was....


Mike Ebert (designer/programer of SNES/MD 'Zombies Ate My Neighbors' had planned to do a true follow up to the game (Ghoul Patrol was never meant as a sequel, it was just a result of development tools used in Zombies being given to another team at Lucas who were developing a game of their own, but project stalled, so Lucas decided to 'save it' by turning it into Ghoul Patrol) on GBA (and possibly DS).

So, he+his team approached Lucas about accuring the rights to do a GBA version/true sequel, but the current management team at that time had no idea LucasArts had even made Zombies!, so they had zero interest in giving Mike the time needed to set a deal up, so nothing ever came of it.


Mikes vision for a Zombies Ate My Nieghbours 2 on GBA would have involved networked MP, more kids to choose from and a lot more levels.

But 'thanks' to the damn suits at LucasArts, we never saw the project even get a green light.

No, no GBA thread had been started before.  About time!  ;)  Looks like LucasArts didn't want to see neighbors eaten on the GBA!

My GBA game collection is not big either.  I actually have a mix of GBA, GBC, and GB games that I play on it.  Just for discussion's sake, here's a video with 20 games that "defined" the GBA.  :)

That's why I have made every effort to have an inventory of all my games, books, etc.  In fact, I just finished the book inventory (I have over 400) and the video game inventory was also updated with all the new Genesis stuff.

That'll be thank's to Crawfish Interactive, who produced some stunning GBA games, sadly late payments and declining interest in GBA games from punters saw them go under, pity as they had a lot of unfinished games on the go inc:

The GBA community has produced a lot of different games for the system, even games based on existing franchises.  Here is an example:  Super Mario: The Last GBA Quest.  Has anyone played it?

The GBA is indeed compatible with GBC and original GB games as long as you got either the original model or the GBA-sp.  :)

He has a couple of GBAs in the shop down the road including a nice clear blue one. He has a load of GBA and GBC games too, some of them still sealed.
