    I'm always on the look out for good lesser known or obscure gems but so far with one or two other forums they never grasp the whole "Lesser Known or Obscure" part.

    Does anyone know some good GBA games that are not the tried and true GBA / Nintendo classics like Zelda, Mario, Castlevania so on so forth?

    as an interesting extra are there any decent horror / dark GBA games?

    Thanks for your time

    Drill Dozer is a great platformer. Really easy to find too - they must have overproduced it when it came out.

    I'm a little biased here, but Rhythm Tengoku is obscure. And adored.

    Well, there are 3 Castlevania games. But you probably already know that.

    If you can find it, get Ninja Five-O.

    My cousin owned the game for a looooong time and every time I'd visit in the summer thats the first game I want to play. Its an acquired taste though. If you ever played Shinobi for SNES its pretty well similar to that...

    Its on the shorter side though so If you're looking for something to keep you busy for 30+ hrs look elsewhere.
