You may have noticed that the Metroid II - EJRTQ colorization hack has gotten its first negative review after four years since its release. The reason? "Palette choices are bad".

This is concrete proof that people are getting more and more exigent over time. When Super Mario Land 2 DX was released, there were no complains at all. Then I find someone disliking the new Mario sprite in Super Mario Land DX, someone else getting mad at the lack of shading in Mega Man World 5 DX, another someone else wondering why there are no additional sound effects in Kirby's Dream Land 2 DX... and now this.

Not gonna lie, this trend is really GETTING ON MY FUCKING NERVES.

Seems to be a "lazy DX" hack like Yoshi lately. Same as with Yoshi: I'd take it anytime over a monochrome version.
While Yoshi is a puzzle game, Mega Man IV and the other four games are platformers. The problem for me is that everything in Mega Man World 4 LDX is orange, as if you splattered the same color everywhere by accident.

I really wish WarioLand 1 would be recolored by somebody else. The colors used are too harsh, and need dialed-back. Most areas aren't even colored right. Whoever colored it doesn't appreciate the game enough to do it right.
Get a glimpse of what we might get in the future.

These are the GB games I'd like to receive color patches:

Avenging Spirit: An original platform/beat'em in which you're a ghost capable of possessing enemies with different abilities. Although there is an arcade version with superior visuals (and difficulty), the GB version has some charm.

Jurassic Park Part 2 - The Chaos Continues: It's a good platform game (unlike its predecessor).

Kid Icarus - Of Myths and Monsters

And some homebrew like Deadeus, done with GB Studio before it supported GBC.

Kid Icarus is a game I also want in color. Too underrated.
