If you love Nintendo’s breakthrough handheld console, you’ll got the staples- Tetris and Pokemon Red, Blue and Yellow, but with over a thousand titles released, there are a bevy of gems. Here are a few of the best you may have never played.

Penguin Wars: It’s basically Dodgeball with animals, but it’s so much fun. The updated Switch version is a blast too, but this one os a retro joy to behold.

Play Action Football: It’s ugly now and was ugly before, but it’s still a damn good football game that is a great way to spend a train or bus ride.

Bugs Bunny in Crazy Castle 2: Sure this whole series is a reskin of other games, but it’s still a blast and a great handheld title. It may be the best Looney Toons game ever released.

Side Pocket: The NES and 16-Bit classic is just as much fun on the Game Boy.

Micro Machines: If you dig V3 on the PlayStation, this is a fun, trimmed-down pocket-sized version. It’s a blast.
