The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening DX

Zelda DX brings you an adventure like no other. Lets take a look!I decided to pick the DX version mainly because of the added features such as an extra dungeon, photographs to print with your Gameboy printer and of course, color. All of these make ...

Harmony of Dissonance

Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance

The sequel to Circle of the Moon was a much better improvement. A bit before the GBASP era of games might of made it hard to see, but this game looked bright as fuck compared to Circle of the Moon.  The game stars Juste Belmont, the grandson of Simon ...
Super Mario Land 2

Xevious
