    Default What Gameboy games are the most fun to play on a SNES via Super Gameboy?

    I really want to find out what games are the most fun to play on this fantastic device. What I am looking for: games with special features when played on a Super Gameboy (such as 2 player modes using a second controller, special borders, special colors, etc.), games that seem to play better with a SNES controller, or just games that are fun to play on a TV! For me I already know that the Donkey Kong Land series has special pre-set colors, but that's about the only example I know of.

    Link's Awakening was a blast. It seemed much more fun on a TV.

    Well, Donkey Kong (not Donkey Kong Land, just Donkey Kong) was the main game they were pushing along with the release of the thing, and it has borders and a nice palate and all.

    I think almost all Game Boy games that were made since the Super Game Boy came out actually had specific borders from then on. This even includes cross-compatible Game Boy Color games.

    I'm a collector, but only to a certain extent.

    Basically, when you plugged Space Invaders into the Super Gameboy, you could play a version of Space Invaders full screen on your TV.

    it's exactly what he says.. the SNES version of Space Invaders is actually built into the GB cart.

    You could buy the full blown SNES cart, or you could access it in the GB cart via the super gameboy.

    Most people don't know Super Gameboy can utilize the SNES. It's said that special mode in Space Invaders even runs an NTSC/PAL check due to being SNES data.

    Accordingly to emulate Super Gameboy how real hardware behaves, you must run SNES and Gameboy simultaneously. Few authors bother with this. Instead usually loading just the border graphics tiles in a GB/GBC environment. Which loses access to all 16-bit specific features. But has the small benefit of letting borders load in GBC mode, against Nintendo specifications as there never was a Super Gameboy Color.

    Using the Super GameBoy is the only way I play my OG GameBoy games. Here are some fun, maybe somewhat obscure games to play. *NOTE - not all of these are SGB enhanced.

    Operation C
    Kid Icarus: Of Myths and Monsters
    Sword of Hope
    Bonk's Revenge
    Great Greed
    Final Fantasy Adventure

    Mega Man V on SGB has a nice border, it's also quite fun to play. It too was built with the SGB in mind.

    Yeah it's among the Mega Man games where unfortunately English carries a premium. X3, Legends 2, V Gameboy...

    Wario Blast had a 4-player mode that was only available if you had a SGB and a Multitap but really, I don't see why you wouldn't just play one of the incarnations of Super Bomberman instead.

    Best played in DX form on a system that can play GBC releases (GBC, any GBA other than the Micro, the Game Boy Player, or as a download from the 3DS shop). Fully colorized graphics and an extra dungeon if you do that.

    And it's the only release with any Super Game Boy enhancements (A custom border), where as the standard gray cartridge GB release has zero enhancements. But of course if you play it on a SGB, you lose the colorized graphics and can't access the special dungeon.
