Pokemon (Red/Blue/Yellow) - I know you are not a fan of these games but Pokemon is popular and might attract some new runners or people who have ran these games and want to try the other games on the list

Tail 'Gator - fun platformer

Noobow - japan exclusive puzzle platformer (ran by Highspirits)

Duck Tales 2 - yes I know the GB Duck Tales games are not nearly as good as their NES counterparts but nevertheless DT2 GB is not as bad as DT1 GB and actually quite fun.

Crayon Shin-Chan 4 - japan exclusive Shin-Chan platformer (there is actually a Crayon Shin-Chan series of GB games)

Castlevania II Belmont's Revenge - it's about time for a Castlevania GB game I think


Just to be clear: I love Pokémon games, only not in a race setting as IMO the start/tutorial section is just a damn waste of time. But we'll see, mighty it will get in this time if it becomes a crowd favorite.

Tail Gator and CV II are on the approved list in any case.

We are gonna try and test as many games in the upcoming weeks/months so we don't have to bother too much anymore with that in the future and just have a list to pick from.


also you could do Pokemon Green any% ( like the Master15 people were doing with Ys wrong warp, short broken game to end the race 🙂


Chalvo 55 - Puzzle platformer that's pretty fun to play

Batman (aka Batgun) - It's a sunsoft batman platformer with a gun. What more do you want?

Gargoyle's Quest - Awesome gameboy platformer in the Ghost 'n Goblins series

Mole Mania - Puzzle game made by Miyamoto, where you control a mole and push around a ball to the exit. You can dig down in various locations, making this game a lot more complex than it seems at first!


I was thinking about Gargoyle's Quest but you would have to set a goal for that game plus it's not very blind race friendly as it appears a little bit hard for people who have never played it before.

I have play tested Chalvo 55 few days ago and it has definitely potential imo.


Phew... Finally done with quick checks. Time to start detailed testing people! Get on it! 😃


should probalby put small soldiers in, I just got stuck on the first screen lol, might as well be a soft lock but I can kill myself
