Gameboy – Avenging Spirit
YouTube Preview Image
One of my favorite elements of the Nintendo download services is the ability to download classic games. When the eShop Gameboy version of Avenging Spirit was released a few months ago for the 3DS eShop, I may have been one of the few people jumping for joy and looking for my credit card to put down the 3 bucks to purchase the game. I remember playing the game for hours on end while taking the biweekly car ride to the grandma’s house back when handheld games took four batteries and instead of including three dimensional gameplay, included a monochrome 4-shades of color palette. Those were the days. Avenging Spirit was one the games I always had on me, and to this day the gameplay holds up. If you don’t believe me, go ahead and download the eShop version. No really, go do it.

Nintentunes: Labor day edition

Gameboy – Sword of Hope 2
YouTube Preview Image
Sword of Hope was known along with Final Fantasy Legend as one of the first RPGs to appear on the Game Boy. Kemco later released a sequel to the title, and although I don’t remember much of story other than the need to find some dude named Zakdos, but I do rembember the awesome soundtrack. Throughout the entire adventure the music is catchy and rhythmic, and for a 2-megabit gameboy cartridge, is very well done.

Nintentunes handheld edition: all the great tunes now available in your pocket!

Gameboy – X
YouTube Preview Image
One of the great things about Nintendo handhelds circa 2008 was their ability to play games from other regions without having to worry about the game being region locked. Although X was never released outside of Japan, this early attempt at three-dimensional gameplay for the original gameboy spiked many gamers interest outside of the land of the rising sun. Going back and playing the title almost 20 years after its original release date, X definitely shows its age gameplay-wise. The music, however, is still as sweet as the day it was released.
