Let's Play Every Game Boy Color Game, Early Alphabet Port to Blog 3

Previous post

Part 3 of porting over the games I covered on Discord before this site existed.


AquaLife (Tamsoft, 1999)

An aquarium simulator with some tamagotchi elements.

Arle no Bouken: Mahou no Jewel

Arle no Bouken: Mahou no Jewel (Compile, 2000)

I automatically have doubts about any game made by Compile, but this Puyo Puyo-themed adventure game seems pretty fun so far. It gets a list slot, and if nothing else I'll have a good soundtrack to listen to.

Armada: FX Racers

Armada: FX Racers (Metro3D, 2000)

A terrible racing game where the music is all random beeps, the only sound effects are horrible screeching noises when you turn, and the track is full of weird yellow tornadoes for some reason.

Armorines: Project S.W.A.R.M.

Armorines: Project S.W.A.R.M. (Neon Software/Acclaim Entertainment, 1999)

A crappy top down shooter that plays a lot like the Aliens game from yesterday, except you only get this lightning gun that doesn't kill enemies quickly enough to stop them from reaching you. Bad music, too.

Army Men

Army Men (Digital Eclipse/3DO, 2000)

A top down shooter where everyone has loads of health. Bullets are much faster than you, so you're all but guaranteed to take some damage from each fight since it takes so long to kill the enemy. They also have a habit of blending in to parts of the very brown levels.

Army Men 2

Army Men 2 (Digital Eclipse/3DO, 2000)

Unsurprisingly, very little changed in this game that came out all of eight months later. The environments are more detailed and enemies somehow have even more health, but otherwise it's identical.

Army Men: Air Combat

Army Men: Air Combat (Fluid Studios/3DO, 2000)

This released on the same day as the game below in North America and the same day as the games above and below in Europe. They're all top down shooters where everyone has too much health and aiming is frustratingly difficult, but you get a helicopter in this one.

Army Men: Sarge's Heroes 2

Army Men: Sarge's Heroes 2 (Game Brains/3DO, 2000)

It has three playable characters and shifts up the vehicle you're driving sometimes to make it seem like a different game. It isn't, though. This is the same thing for the fourth time in one year.
