What are some hidden gems for the Game Boy Color? I really love the lightly-shaded color aesthetic

Are you ready to play the best gameboy platformer, op?

I don't know about hidden gems but the Mario sports games on gbc were amazing. Dave Mirra BMX kicks ass. Power Quest is very fun and somewhat unique.

Medarot series. Actually not gems, just decent, but with lot of character, good music and they look really nice.
Comfy games.

This was my favorite of the 3 released on the GBC. All that games are really fun. The other games in the series are a bit hit or miss.

The second one is a damn good jrpg-style game.

Aliens - Thanatos Encounter is apparently pretty good, while Alien 3 for the original GB is a neat little game.

Dragon Warrior 1&2 is (according to some people) the best version of those games. It's definitely my favourite way to play DQ1.

Road Rash was surprisingly good, other than that racking my brain i honestly forgot most Gameboy games. Some caveman platformer, and some samurai vs aliens puzzler was decent.

Someone here said they found the encounter rate too high, I don't remember that being an issue. It's a cool weird rpg with a billiards inspired battle system.

Tomb Raider on GBC is interesting. TR is like Prince of Persia in 3D, so it ends up being like a TR themed PoP game in some ways. Getting lost can get easy in later levels because they get huge and everything looks so similar. But other than that it's a fun game if you're into that sort of thing.

the only thing that pisses me off is that you can only unlock like 25% of the museum.

For strictly Color games, SMB DX is fucking great (except the screen is slightly too small).

For GB/GBC games, Shadowgate and Pokemon Pinball were the tits.

No more puzzles and capsule monsters, but more difficult battles, playable characters and better combat. I preferred it.

Honestly, GBC beats NES in terms of having an awesome library, and the colors are Master System good

>> No.4176506

>the colors are Master System good
More or less. It has the same color palette as the SNES, 15-bit, but does not have as many colors per sprite as the Master System, which could do 16.

>> No.4176512

>Honestly, GBC beats NES in terms of having an awesome library

I can't see that myself. I personally found the Game Boy Color to have the worst library of any Nintendo system (excluding oddities like Virtual Boy or Pokemon Mini) with lots and lots of shovelware. What is good on there (first party titles, jRPGs and a weird third party game there and here) is pretty damn good, though.

You just described NES. CB/C is much better.

That's in OP's image friendo

>> No.4177054

I wouldn't go that far. By virtue of its short life alone the NES had quantity over it. I'd say the GBC is overall more consistent, every good game is really good, but the NES has more legit 9+/10 games as opposed to "8/10 for a handheld".

>> No.4177057

If you combine them sure, but the GBC alone is still worse than the NES. Most GBC games were licensed shit.

Serious question here. It's always baffled me how a GBC costs $40-60 dollars today. Why is this? Like is it for collection purposes or something?

>> No.4180879

its because people will pay those prices - gameboys and other 90s retro aesthetic became super popular a few years back

>> No.4181016

That's really dumb considering getting a GBA SP is waaayyyy more cheaper and more efficient. Are hipsters this stupid that they don't know they can play a ton more games, plus they won't have a backlit screen on the GBC.

>> No.4181037

Some collectors don't give a shit. It's a "piece of history".

>> No.4181104

GBC has slightly different colours compared to running the same game on a GBA, I think, and some people just prefer the device. It's also still not really that expensive as a piece of hardware - they're hardly rare, unless you want one in mint condition.

also carts sticking out bugs me

>> No.4181108

Fuck that noise. If they want to drop $99 for a GBC and 3 shitty games they deserve to be swindled.

>> No.4181110

Got me there. Also the missing audio jack is weird. I'm just looking at the efficiency of it. Also really? In my area people are trying to sell these for ridiculous prices and the regular GB is just going for $15.

>> No.4181118

Hey guys! Hidden gems are always one of my favorite things to talk about, especially on a super cool system like the GBC! I'd recommend Wendy: Every Which Way for platformer fans.

>> No.4181120

There is an adapter for headphones.
I never used headphones on a handheld anyway. I'm either at home and the speaker is good enough, or just go without sound if you're in public.

>> No.4181137

Having said this, I don't currently own a GBC, and if I do get one it'll probably be a fancy backlit one with an aftermarket screen or whatever. Sometimes the vertical form factor is nice and comfy. I love my DMG.
