My First Gameboy!

Well, it took some time, but I’ve finally ordered my first handheld gaming device! My choice fell upon the Gameboy Advance SP, a legendary piece of hardware. Not only does it run GBA games, but it is compatible with those old Gameboy and Gameboy Color ones as well. The unit I’ve purchased is in silver and looks real nice. I chose the SP version due it having several improvements over the vanilla version.

Up until now I’ve only had the privilege of owning stationary gaming devices. Now it’s time to take my gaming activities on the move. I’m very excited about this. Hope I’ll be happy with my purchase.

The first games I’m going to try out are the following:

Final Fight One for the GBA
Final Fight One for the GBA

Final Fight One (I loved Final Fight on the Amiga – can’t wait to relive the frantic experience on the Gameboy)

Mario Kart: Super Circuit (Played Mario Kart a LOT on the Nintendo 64. I just had to buy this game.)

Pacman (I think Pacman still packs a lot of fun)

Super Mario Advance

Super Mario Advance: Super Mario World (Completed the SNES-version a few times. Will be nice to complete it on the Gameboy as well.)

I reckon this is a good start, but I’ll of course keep my eyes open for other games. If you have some suggestions for games I should try out, please leave a comment below. Thanks in advance. ๐Ÿ™‚


  1. Gratz on such a device!

    I had the Game Gear from Sega in my childhood. Superb machine, first handheld with colors. I was a BIG Sonic fan, and played the crap out of Sonic 1 and Sonic 2(never been released on any other systems I think, atleast not this version of Sonic). Sonic 2 was tough as hell. Google it, and you see!



    • Thank you, Kirenaj. ๐Ÿ™‚ The Gameboy arrived yesterday. It was delivered extremely quick. Actually so quick that I haven’t received any of the games yet. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Hehe.. Looking forward to give it a go once the games arrives.

      Ahh.. the Sega Game Gear. Great handheld. Would love to try that one again some time. Did you have any good shoot’em up’s for it?

      I’m going to have a look at Sonic 2 now. ๐Ÿ˜‰
