Back in the day, the Game Boy was the gaming equivalent of a smartphone or tablet. Like a discman or walkman, you'd have to load it with a cartridge in order to play your favorite titles. If you still have a case full of those cartriges, don't throw them away yet.
Meet the Super Retro Boy, which was first spotted during the Consumer Electronics Show 2017.
Unlike the old Game Boy, the Super Retro Boy is rechargable. Apart from that, it has all the features of your childhood hand-held so that you could play long-forgotten games.
So, what should you play once you get your hands on this device? Here's a list of some games for you to rediscover:
Most of us dislike math, but when you plaster Mario's face all over a mathematically-themed game, you'll suddenly become a number genius. Basically, Mario Picross is a nonogram logic puzzle where you have to knock out blocks aligned on a grid to create pictures. You'll be playing for days on the Super Retro Boy in order to sharpen those long lost math skills.
The Legend Of Zelda: Link's Awakening
If you can still remember this Zelda game, you have to help Link on his puzzle-filled journey as he gathers eight musical instruments to awaken the sleeping Wind Fish that will help him escape the island. Maybe you still have this lying around your house?
Everyone knows Donkey Kong. It simply looked perfect on our Gameboy screens way way back. Now that there's the Super Retro Boy, you can once again play this puzzle in bliss.
It's pretty simple really, Mario just throws pills at the player, aligning them tog et rid of a virus. Once that's done, the patient is cured.
Can you recall Stardroids? Remember the power you felt when Megaman defeats them? Now you can experience that feeling all over again.
Pokemon Puzzle Challenge
Pokemon is one of those games that proved to be a huge success and is compatible even with the latest technology. Though there isn't much exploring to do here, at least you can use the stacking skills you learned from years of Tetris in order to finish each level.
Harvest Moon GB
This is one of those chill games where you just harvest plants, tend the farm, and manage the livestock. Besides, you don't have much of a choice, especially if the farm belongs to your grandfather.
Kirby Tilt 'n' Tumble
Kirby Tilt 'n' Tumble was one of the first games to have an accelerometer built in its cartridge, which allows the player to play using tilting movements. Unlike the other games, you don't have to press anything. Just tilt and rotate your Gameboy to help Kirby collect stars in a maze-like field.
Some have superheroes, others have familiar faces, and all of them sound very, very promising
Absolutely more eloquent and elegant than listening to someone say, 'You're fired!'
Watch just how awesome the new gen is
