Alright! With just three post to go in the Gameboy/Pocket/Color category, after, here’s Pokemon Puzzle Challenge for the Gameboy Color! This game began life on the Super Famicom in Japan as a game known as Panel de Pon, a puzzle game with the exact same gameplay as Tetris Attack and Pokemon Puzzle League. We, in the United States, have been particularly secluded from the game’s original release and have only one or two shreds of evidence about the game’s origins: One being the mystery item in the Super Smash Bros. series, called “Lip’s Stick,” which happens to not have any in-game use for the Super Famicom title, but is used to deal damage as a battering item and as a multiplier after inital damage, and number two being this game right here, Pokemon Puzzle Challenge. While this game by itself is merely a revamp of said Panel de Pon game for the Gameboy Color system, with new sprites, music, characters, etc., it is little known that this game actually contains a Gameboy Port of the original Panel de Pon game, and one does not even require an Action Replay, Gameshark, etc. to access it! As we both know, Gameboy Color games are not playable on Gameboy and Gameboy Pocket systems, right..? In most cases, the answer would be a firm “Yes,” however, in this case under the right circumstances, it can be! When the game pak is inserted into a Gameboy, Gameboy Pocket, or even a Super Gameboy (SNES Accessory which plays Gameboy Games on TV), the screen will display the “This game can oonly be played on Game Boy (R) Color.” message. If a player, however, presses the “A” button 24x in a row and does the same for the “B” button, the user will then be allowed to play a working title Panel de Pon Gameboy port!

And tonight’s post is now Pokemon Crystal! It was going to be another game, but I do believe that another game related to it is first posted…
Anyway, this sequel-esque game to the Pokemon Gold and Pokemon Silver games introduces the ability to play as a female trainer for the fist time, a more detailed color scheme, the Battle Tower makes its first appearance, and like Pokemon Yellow, the battle sprites for the Pokemon have been upated, and more importantly, Suicune is an event Pokemon that you don’t have to chase down like Entei and Raikou in the previous game!

Released in tandem in 2001, The Legend of Zelda Oracle of Ages and The Legend of Zelda Oracle of Seasons, were the first The Legend of Zelda games to feature interface between games. These games found (post-A Link to the Past) Link on his way to the castle where Zelda was only to be warped to either Holodrum (Seasons), or Labrynna (Ages), respectively. It is then that Link is tasked, yet again, as playing the hero to save Din or Nayru from the baddies who, after, beating both games and linking them via password, actually intended to resurrect Ganon, yet again, but, of course, Link valiantly saves the day and Zelda.

Continuing the course of Gameboy Color Games, after a long absence, might I had, here’s Mario Golf! While Mario has appeared as the main player for golf before on the Gameboy game Golf, this is the first game which explicitly shows Mario as the games protagonist. This game was released in 1999 in tangent with Mario Golf for the Nintendo 64 and takes advantage of the Transfer Pak accessory given away with copies of Pokemon Stadium for the Nintendo 64. Like Pokemon Stadium, Mario Golf on the Gameboy color interacts with Mario Golf on the Nintendo 64. Mostly, the game allowed the custom characters on the Gameboy Color version to be played as full 3D-models on the Nintendo 64 and also earning the character experience points. While both may have obviously different graphics from 8-bit to 64-bit, the object of both games, obviously is to cause the golf ball to reach the goal in the fewest strokes possible. This being Mario Golf, there are of course a plethora of other game modes in which the player may compete.

Okay, so since the quality of the last post of Pokemon Gold Version and Pokemon Silver version wasn’t that great of quality, here they are again with a new combined picture! Pokemon Gold Version and Pokemon Silver Version, are the first installments in the second generation of the Pokemon franchise. These two versions introduced 100 new Pokemon into the series, including Totodile, Cyndaquil, Chikorita, and Celibi! New features to the series included the introduction of not only night and day time but the ability to only catch certain Pokemon at certain times of day almost like real plants/insects/animals that would only be found at certain intervals. Also, the breeding element of Pokemon was introduced in this installment of the series with the Day Care Center in Celadon city. Furthermore, Gold & Silver introduced the first form of communication, the Pokenav! Through this useful device, trainers could communicate with one another to set up battles, share useful information, and chat, listen to the radio, and other cool features. I personally always liked DJ Mary’s Sunday Pokemon March music. lol
