10: Alien Syndrome: Sega’s underrated Master System shooter is a fun one on the Game Gear.

9: Columns: This does exactly what you’d expect, despite the smaller real estate.

8: Ecco the Dolphin: It’s just as beautiful on the small Game Gear screen.

7: Battletoads: The sprites are much smaller, but this one is a fun beat-em-up on the go.

6: NHL All-Star Hockey: A Game Gear hockey game with real players and teams? That plays solid? Yes. The animations are awful, but it’s all there.
