The Powerpuff Girls: Paint the Townsville Green (Gameboy Color)

The Powerpuff Girls - Paint the Townsville Green (Gameboy Color) - Full Cover

Prediction

I loved watching the Powerpuff Girls growing up. The original version, not this weird reboot they have on now. There was just something so fun about it. Especially with the character designs, with their huge eyes and lack of hands they definitely were bug eyed freaks. Even the villains in the series knew this and would regularly call them freaks and pumpkin heads and so on. I think it’s funny that the lack of hands wasn’t even just a design choice, they really had no hands. You can tell because of when they swapped bodies in the episode “Criss Cross Crisis” and Buttercup couldn’t figure out how to use Professor Utonium’s normal hands. She was so used to everything just sticking to her stump that she thought his hands didn’t work right. read more

Spanky’s Quest (Gameboy)

Spanky's Quest (Gameboy) - Full Cover

Prediction

Ok, so enough with the educational games for a while. Instead, let’s let the inner 12 year old out and explore the game Spanky’s Quest. I’ll be honest, I have never heard of Spanky’s Quest, and I only ever stumbled upon it while browsing for games to fill my still tiny Gameboy collection. But the second I saw it my inner 12 year old just had to have it. Just look at it! It’s a game about Spanky the monkey who must save the world with his magic balls. If you’re not snickering inside at that description then you clearly didn’t have a childhood. read more

Monster Rancher Explorer (Gameboy Color)

Prediction

I remember when there was a 3 way power struggle between Pokémon, Digimon, and Monster Rancher. They all had similar themes of using monsters to fight for you, and at the time each had their own dedicated followings. Since then, Pokémon obviously has become one of the most successful videogame franchises of all time. Digimon is still holding its own, and seems to be picking up a little lately. Sadly, the whole Monster Rancher franchise seems to have just dropped off the face of the earth, with me having never played a single one of the games. read more

Quarth (Gameboy)

Prediction

Quarth was one of the games I bought during my recent expansion of my classic Gameboy library. I bought it because the cover looked kind of cool, and because it started with a “Q”. Really, how many games start with a “Q”? That makes this game like super rare and unique, right?

Quarth (Gameboy) - 01

My inexplicable fascination of the letter “Q” aside, it did look like a cool game from the cover. It’s got a little spaceship like space invaders, but it’s also got falling blocks like Tetris. It’s a weird combination, and I’m not sure what to make of it yet. However, both of those games are amazing classics, so I can only imagine their love child should be just as much fun. read more
