This is the new and updated Game Boy & Game Boy Color-Essentials topic.​

The layout will be about the same as ever and the rules are:
Rules by Dice said:
If there is a game already on the list that you think should not be there let me know and it'll have a point removed (so if there are more negative than positive votes then the game will be removed entirely off the list).

You may also recommend some more games in a future post but: (1) you must not repeat any game you have already mentioned and (2) you must make a new post, do NOT edit your previous post as it may not be seen.
All games will be sorted alphabetically as I decided that I won't show the exact number of votes for each game.

I also tried to determine whether a game is available in color on a GBC system, or enhanced if you play it on the Super Game Boy, by adding the following codes to the names:
(C) = Game Boy Color version
(S) = Super Game Boy version
(S/C) = there are two versions of the game available or the game is enhanced if played on the Super Game Boy
I'm sorry, but there's no easy way to tell if a game is GBC only or enhanced on the Super Game Boy. Corrections are welcome!

Looks great, but I'm sorry where is Batman ( by Sunsoft ) ?
It looks and plays just as good as Super Mario Land, and it's one of my favorite handled games of all times !
+ 1 for Batman please !

I'll put in another vote for Catrap, a little-known wonderful puzzle game.

And no mention of Trip World?! It's got to be one of the best, if not the best platformer on the original B/W GB!!

    Here's another video fog isn't being displayed properly on several games. Nintendo life also reported this. Water Temple in oot water reflection isn't emulated properly either the whole point of the gimmick of that room. Graphical glitches and poor emulation shouldn't be present at $30 bucks
