15. Pinball of the Dead

If you think Typing of the dead is the strangest point of house of death‘s story, then you’ve probably never heard of pinball of the dead; the game that is exactly what you think it is. A zombie-themed pinball game for the Game Boy Advance is odd no matter how you choose to look at it, but it’s this game’s elaborate presentation and cinematic flair that puts it way above that.

What’s really weird, though, is that this game is actually really, really good. Yes, it’s just a digital pinball machine, but it’s definitely one of the best options for anyone looking for a digital pinball game to play on the go. Why did they stop getting weirder and weirder house of death spin off ? Most of them were great.

Robopon game boy

14. Robopon

On the surface, Robopon looks like another entry in a long line of Pokemon scams made for the game boy and Gameboy color. In many ways, that’s exactly what it’s all about. Still, this robot collecting/battle game had one really weird gimmick that set it apart from almost everything else.

To see the Robopon cartridges came with built-in infrared sensors that could detect inputs from common household appliances. So you can do something like point your TV remote at the canister and receive a seemingly random perk, like a stat boost. These same sensors also allowed players to swap characters wirelessly. While technologically impressive on its own, this whole concept (commonly referred to as “GB Kiss”) never really caught on.

Monkey Puncher Game Boy Color

13. Punch Monkey

First of all, puncher monkey is just a big name for a game. I’d gladly play multiple entries in a “Puncher” franchise (Dude Puncher, Fish Puncher, Kick Puncher, etc.). While that name says a lot about the game itself (it’s a boxing title featuring monkeys), everything else about this title is truly surprising.

After all, few games start with your father and brother being kidnapped by monkey gangsters. Fewer games then require you to fight your way through a boxing league of monkeys in order to rescue them. Of course, there’s only one game that also lets you have monkey kids that can carry on your boxing legacy, and, you guessed it, that’s puncher monkey.

The last entry in the Splatoon The series is here, inviting a whole new wave of gamers to cross the line between squid and kid. Splaton 3 isn’t the only quirky online Nintendo game released in the last month, however. Just weeks before “Turf War” and “Salmon Run” took over the cultural conversation, the big N released a much smaller track: Kirby’s Dream Buffet.


With two excellent online multiplayer games on the Nintendo Switch so close, many fans will have a hard time deciding which title is more worthy of their time. An online game can be a daunting time commitment, and although Splaton 3 and Kirby’s Dream Buffet both are aimed primarily at casual audiences, those who only want one colorful and light multiplayer game to waste hours of may still need some help deciding which one is best.

How Kirby and Splatoon Gameplay Compare

The bread and butter of an online game is, of course, the gameplay. If you’re expected to put time and energy into improving yourself in a game, it should be an enjoyable experience. On the gameplay side, despite the similarities that appear on first examination, Splaton 3 and Kirby’s Dream Buffet are quite different.

Both Splaton 3 and Kirby’s Dream Buffet focus on fast and digestible matches. No game turn takes more than a few minutes. Where Splaton 3 use these super-fast laps as stepping stones on a journey to unlock the best gear and rewards, however, Kirby’s Dream Buffet is not affected by “progression”. There are a few cosmetic unlocks, but for the most part, game is game and that’s it.

There is also the simple fact that Splaton 3 and Kirby’s Dream Buffet exist in radically different genres. The former is a team-based shooter (in a very Nintendo way) while the latter is a fall guys-party game. Both feel great, but both will appeal to fundamentally different demographics.

The competitive viability of each game

In the broadest sense of the word, the two Splaton 3 and Kirby’s Dream Buffet are competitive games. It is about trying to triumph over other players. Kirby’s Dream Buffet doesn’t seem particularly worried about who does better, though. In a very mario party-ish twist, when the points are tallied, a few bonus points go to players who unknowingly complete a few arbitrary measurements during play, which means the winner is often decided entirely at random.

Splaton 3, on the other hand, cares a lot about who does best. Like most competitive games, it comes with a ranked mode for those who are very serious about their splashes, and winning usually comes with far more generous rewards than losing. Whereas Splaton 3 has a handful of alternative gameplay options, including the hugely popular “Salmon Run” PvE mode, it’s largely competitive-based.

That means Kirby’s Dream Buffet will be the best option for younger or less experienced players, who are not necessarily ready to dive into the hectic world of Turf War. For those looking for a new title to satisfy their competitive cravings, Splaton 3 is the way to go.

Offline offers from Kirby and Splatoon

Splaton 3 and Kirby’s Dream Buffet are online games. They are built around their online compatibility. But the Switch is a portable console, and gamers may not always have an internet connection when they feel like playing their games. Luckily, both titles have at least something in terms of offline play.

Splaton 3 almost certainly has the more robust offline offerings of the two. It comes with a lengthy single-player campaign complete with a reasonably compelling story and tons of level-based challenges to complete. The campaign is almost as fun as online multiplayer, and it could arguably sell out Splaton 3 all alone.

Kirby’s Dream Buffet has Splaton 3 beat in one key area though: local multiplayer. Splaton 3 allows local online play, but Kirby’s Dream Buffet comes with a real local game on the same console. Unfortunately, it’s limited to two-player split-screen, but it’s still a great option for game nights with friends, family, and significant others.

Splatoon has a much higher player count

Online games are for all other players. Without competitors from around the world to share the fun, there is no game. Unfortunately, when it comes to the number of players online, the answer is clear: Splaton 3 won. There’s no getting around the fact that the Splatoon already has a thriving online community. With more competitive and cooperative options available, and with a brand name associated with online play, Splaton 3 is destined to remain a major presence in online gaming.

Find an eight-player Turf War match in casual or ranked play in Splaton 3 is extremely easy. It usually only takes a few seconds. Matchmaking in Kirby’s Dream Buffet usually takes much longer, and many games will still end with one or two CPU-controlled players. Both games are still young, but it seems clear that Splaton 3 will have a much more sustainable community than Kirby’s Dream Buffet.

Kirby’s Dream Buffet is significantly cheaper than Splatoon 3

The number one factor that keeps many gamers from just grabbing both Kirby’s Dream Buffet and Splaton 3 is the price. Video games can be expensive. Luckily for thrifty gamers looking for a decent online experience, one of these two games is significantly cheaper than the other, and this game is Kirby’s Dream Buffet.

Kirby’s Dream Buffet is a complement to a larger Kirby game released this year, Kirby and the Forgotten Land. ‘Cause it’s a little game Dream Buffet also comes with a smaller price tag: just $14.99. Splaton 3 is a complete sequel to Splaton 2and its price is this way at $59.99. Kirby’s Dream Buffet may not be as feature rich as Splaton 3but at around a quarter of the price, it’s hard to feel too bad about it.

Verdict

In the end, both Splaton 3 and Kirby’s Dream Buffet are great games. Which one to buy comes down to personal preference. For those looking for a full-fledged competitive online experience, Splaton 3 is the way to go. Those looking for a smaller game to flesh out the date night roster will appreciate Kirby’s Dream Buffetlow price and local multiplayer. It all depends on the type of game you are looking for.

Nintendo gamers never run out of options when it comes to having amazing games to cling to on the Switch. While there have been plenty of blockbuster offerings this year, there’s a new title for the wearable device, which seems to be gaining quite a bit of buzz these days. It’s a sports game, based on baseball, and looks like a strong contender to give MLB The Show 2022 a run for its money.

At least, that’s what seems to be the case right now, based on the impressions of a popular Nintendo gamer and YouTuber. Little League World Series Baseball 2022 is a new title for the Switch that debuted last week. However, it seems not everyone will be able to comfortably beat him.

Is Little League World Series Baseball harder than MLB The Show on Nintendo Switch?

Zach from the SwitchForce channel has uploaded a new clip to YouTube in which he discusses Little League World Series Baseball. Additionally, he also spent the entire video showing off his own gameplay session of the latest Nintendo Switch offering. It is also available on Xbox, PlayStation and PC via Steam.

Going back to what Zack thinks about the game, so according to him, it’s very hard to beat. In fact, he couldn’t record a victory even after spending hours there despite showing the best possible skills in the matches. This led him to believe that this Switch title is a badass in its entirety. However, after restarting the game, he finally managed to win after putting in all the effort.

When it comes to his overall impressions, however, Little League World Series Baseball on the Nintendo console is tough. Not everyone will be able to fight their way to victory.

In case the game becomes more popular in the next few days, it could become a challenge for another third-party baseball title on the Switch. We are talking about MLB The Show 2022 which was released a few months ago on the handheld console. Now that there are two baseball simulation games, it will be interesting to see which one manages to attract the most players.

Being a tech nerd has its pros and cons. The advantage is that you can get your hands on some of the best technology in the world. As someone who likes to be on the cutting edge of technology, that means I will end up having some of the most important technology in the world.

My love affair with technology started early in my life. Photos hiding in my family’s attic show Baby Spec dragging Game Boys of all variants, as well as the latest handsets. I’ve never been someone who cared about clothes or makeup. I was a tech nerd through and through. When I wasn’t playing games or browsing PC magazines, I was regularly bricking Nokias and finding ways to push the tech to its limits.

So it wouldn’t be surprising if the older I got, the more technology I accumulated. I was much better than my dad at getting rid of old technology that had served its purpose (and making a small profit from it). When I got my first home, I was still carrying around a significant amount of technology and old phones. I was determined, much to my ex’s dismay, to hang things on our walls as display items.

And that’s how the Tech Wall 1.0 was born! And as you can see, that leaves something to be desired. I had originally had many heavier items attached with heavy duty 3M tape or some sort of hook and loop system. But as you can see from the voids, some of the heaviest items, like the original Game Boy and Game Gear, didn’t survive the wall. The strips were failing due to the weight of the items, and since I didn’t want to break anything, I had to wonder if there was a better way to display all of my beloved items.

This is where Xreart comes in. Luckily, for those of us who love our technology and want to show it off in all its glory, there are better ways to do that than just sticking to the back of your devices and hoping for the best. .

What is Xreart?

Xreart Company is a photography studio specializing in “back in the day” product photography. It was founded in 2019 and since then they have a habit of producing top notch electronic item pictures and videos for their customers. In 2022, their crew is made up of a group of young photography enthusiasts, electronic connoisseurs and convinced that technology can revolutionize the world.

I had the Game Boy Color Yellow to look at for Phandroid and to say I’m impressed is an understatement.

It came in a sturdy black box with silver lettering and an embossed Xreart logo. The rigid carton contains the well-packaged square shadow box. It is surrounded by foam strips, which hold the item in place without compromising its safety or presentation when opening the carton. Once you take the shadow box out of its packaging, you will notice little things that show its attention to detail, such as the protective film on the glass that would protect it from scratches or glass breakage that may occur during transport. It has a solid black frame that highlights the components inside, and it immediately grabs your attention.

The Game Boy Colors shells are well preserved and immediately catch your eye as soon as you see them. It’s not just the back shell, but the front itself as well as its rear battery panel. Its components, from its screen to the membrane of the buttons and the d-pad, are disassembled and labeled. It can be hard to imagine, sometimes, what goes into our technology to make it work.

With the way the console and its components are laid out, you get a better idea of ​​what exactly is going on in each device. Yet it’s laid out and labeled in a way that even tech newbies will appreciate and know what each component does and how it makes each device unique and special.

For me, one of the things I appreciate the most is the attention to detail in the layout itself. There is such a subtle yet very effective color scheme here. For example, there is a contrast in the motherboards ranging from deep green with the gold and silver flecks of the solder to light green, almost teal blue of the rest of the board, which is for the button membranes and of the screen .

You’ll notice that the teal color is also highlighted in the membranes displayed on the sides, while the buttons themselves are solid black. This allows the colors to complement each other and bring out the other colors playing in the components. For those who appreciate color, color theory, and how colors can complement and enhance things, you’ll know that Xreart knows what it’s doing when it comes to showing off the best of what these components have to offer.

You may be wondering if there are options available to those who may already be disassembling their technology, and to that, the answer is yes! Xreart offers a range of templates for layouts and components to buy so that if you find yourself with the right tools to disassemble your beloved gadgets, you can use their templates to help you lay things out and label them. appropriately. Their iPhone 4 layout is free on their website right now, and that gives you an idea of ​​what to expect when taking things apart. They have other layouts available for a nominal fee (under $10 in most cases), so you can explore more options than just phone layouts.

You can check out all of these options and more at xreart.com and if you pick one, let us know what you got! We would like to know!

While Gengar isn’t inherently a bad Pokemon, it has been portrayed in villainous form in many instances. Speaking of appearance, the creature is round, with its body covered in dark purple fur that sticks out on top of its head. The Pokémon has short arms and legs, as well as three digits on each limb, a stubby tail, and pointy ears.

A die-hard Gengar lover recently decided to make a fascinating crossover of this creature with the Nintendo Gameboy Macro.

They showed a Gameboy covered in the gorgeous skin of none other than Gengar himself.

Super Smash Bros amiibo. long-awaited Minecraft characters Steve and Alex are coming very soon. The name of the new generation is “Amiibo”, which can be described as the best of Nintendo games. Although that genre crashed and burned, with no real sign of a future, amiibo survived. While not as reliant on specific games as other toy-for-life projects, amiibo have spawned a frenzied following. The minifigures are really well made from iconic characters, which usually allow players access to playable items that otherwise wouldn’t be accessible. The latest wave of figures revolves around two Minecraft characters and they are coming very soon.

After originally slated for Spring 2022, the Minecraft Steve and Alex amiibo will be released on September 9. These figures are created using the Super Smash Bros. line. so players can examine them in-game and fight with them. That said, some players don’t even take them out of the box, because they’re just amazing collectibles. Some of these amiibos are rare and since there is such a high demand for Minecraft figures, you might want to pre-order one while you have the chance. There’s no indication that these are limited editions, but that doesn’t mean they won’t be hard to craft at launch. After all, we all know how long it takes to secure Nintendo items on day one.

Nintendo has produced some of the oldest and most iconic video game franchises of all time, and it’s easy for many fans to compile a long list of their favorites. While some of the company’s iconic characters are unforgettable, that doesn’t mean every game to appear on a Nintendo console was equally memorable.



RELATED: Nintendo: Every Handheld Nintendo Console Reveal Event, Ranked

The Game Boyhoused countless classic and less classic games. Those who were quickly forgotten often had one thing going for them: fantastic coverage. Whether the art captures game themes, evokes a mood, or simply makes the player want to grab a Game Boy and dive in, these covers will be remembered as some of the finest to appear on the system.

GAMER VIDEO OF THE DAY

8 adventure island

If asked to name a side-scrolling Nintendo adventure in which a hat-wearing hero must save a princess from an anthropomorphic villain, most gamers would instinctively say Maria. Surprisingly, that’s not the only correct answer.

Here the game is adventure island, and the hero is Master Higgins, a young man who ventures to the titular South Pacific island to rescue Princess Tina from the clutches of the Evil Witch Doctor. There are 32 and a number of bosses, but the best part of the game is the cover art, which instantly captures a classic Nintendo vibe, feeling cartoony and adventurous with a subtle vibe of danger.

seven Beetle Juice (1992)

On the heels of Rare’s 1991 release for the NES, the 1992s beetle juice for the Game Boy. Based on the animated TV series, the game lets the player take control of Beetlejuice as he attempts to purge Lydia Deetz’s house of ghosts and save her from the evil Astoroth.

RELATED: All Pokemon Regions & Their Real-World Equivalents

The game may be an odd departure from the film canon, but it has its own spooky charm. The player uses bio-exorcist magic to battle the undead, can ride around on a minecart and Pogosnake mount, and perform other typical side-scrolling activities. The game’s gothic aesthetic was a departure from many of the more colorful and cartoonish games of the time, as evidenced by the cover art depiction of Beetlejuice, ogling the player and looking as unsettling as ever.

6 Castlevania II: Belmont’s Revenge

The Castlevania The franchise is adored by many, so much so that it helped inspire an entire genre: Metroidvania. Castlevania II: Belmont’s Revenge may not be one of the best games in the franchise, but it helped shape this Castlevania would be for years to come. Set 15 years later Castlevania: Adventure, Belmont’s Revenge Features the return of Dracula and the kidnapping of Christopher Belmont’s son.

The game’s cover art – with its towering castle, muscular hero, and lavish fantasy backdrop – might not be exactly what modern fans imagine when they think of the series, but it undeniably captured a vibe and helped put the players in the right frame of mind. the spirit to storm Dracula’s castle again.

5 Child Dracula (1993)

Castlevania wasn’t the only Game Boy franchise to capitalize on the legendary vampire’s name. Child Dracula is a remake and sequel to the Famicom game from three years earlier. The evil Garamoth is back and only Kid Dracula can defeat him. Unfortunately, most of Kid Dracula’s spells have been erased from his memory, and many of his once-trustworthy minions betrayed him and entered the service of his enemy.

The game’s cover features bright colors, high contrast, and simple shapes, all of which help sell it as a parody rather than just a copy of Castlevania. The game’s legacy may not have held up well over the years, but the original is still remarkable in many ways.

4 C-Operation

Although many do not know the title C operation, they will know the name Contra. C-Operation was the sequel to Great against and the franchise’s first portable entry. Looking and playing much like the NES version, C-Operation was an addictive side-scrolling shoot-em-up, pitting the player and their weapons against a horde of challenging enemies, though it wasn’t the best in the series.

The fantasy cover – featuring a sleeveless, muscular, headband-wearing soldier blasting a giant scorpion with machine gun fire – is about as over the top as they come, but totally in keeping with the style of the time. The main character is even posed as an action figure, which makes the whole thing even more ridiculous (and awesome).

3 Skate or Die: Bad ‘N Rad

Extreme sports may not have reached their peak in pop culture until the 2000s, but Skate or Die: Bad ‘N Rad helped lead the charge. The nameless skateboarding hero is on a mission to rescue Miss Aerial from ElRad the Evil One which is all about the story the player needs or gets.

The game’s seven timed stages feature both side-scrolling and top-down skateboarding adventures, with boss battles at the end of many of them.

The game’s mechanics and story may not have broken much ground in the genre, but the game’s cover art is in a world of its own. As the game’s skateboarding hero is doing tricks on a cliff by the sea, both a helicopter and a monster try to knock him down. This moment of frozen action does a great job of showing what the game dreams of being, and while it doesn’t quite live up to that dream, Skate or Die: Bad ‘N Rad is certainly unique.


2 Ultima: Runes of Virtue II

The Ultimate did more to shape RPGs and MMOs than almost any other, but before Ultimate online shook the world there was Ultima: Runes of Virtue II. This game, like its predecessor, was a non-canonical spin-off of the main series rather than a continuation of the story featured in the Age of Enlightenment and Age of Armageddon games of the time.

While it’s not canon or as mind-blowing as some others,Ultima: Runes of Virtue II had at least one advantage: a beautifully illustrated cover. With the battle of a knight in black armor and a hero draped in obligatory white, the art of the game would have been right at home on the cover of any pulp fantasy magazine. Other games in the series have overshadowed it, but Runes of Virtue II at least left gamers with that enduring image.


1 Swamp Thing

Given the overwhelming popularity of superheroes, it’s no surprise that these characters have had a place in gaming since the early days of the medium. It may surprise some, however, to learn that a smaller profile and a much more complicated character like Swamp Thing had its own game in the Game Boy era.

This walking talking plant has been reimagined several times in the comics, and while the Game Boy version may not have the depth that Alan Moore and other writers brought to it on the printed page, Swamp Thing received cover art that more than did the character justice. The palette of faded orange, yellow and cloudy green helps make this cover one of the most atmospheric and evocative images to ever appear on the system.
