The Game Boy has a massive library and because of that, there are a ton of games you definitely misses. Check out this handful of titles and thank us later.

The Adventures of Star Saver: This is a unique little romp that has an awesome score and an old-school arcade adventure feel.

Altered Space: A 3-D Alien Adventure: An early attempt at 3D on the Game Boy. Not great but worth checking out.

X: Without this, there’s no Star Fox. It’s got polygons on the Game Boy and a hell of a score.

The Amazing Spider-Man: Definitely not the best Spider-Man game on a handheld, but there’s fun to be had if you’re patent.

Penguin Wars: Its gameplay is simple, but you’ll get sucked in quickly.
