Beat every Game Boy game - 2020 - 225/497


Recommended Posts

Editorials Team · Posted

Let's keep playing Game Boy games in 2020!

- Games must be started and finished no earlier than January 1, 2020, NA time.
- No cheat codes, game genie codes, glitches etc. may be used
- Emulation is allowed, but no save states, altered roms, or any advantages over playing on original hardware. (Super Game Boy and Game Boy Player are allowed.)
- Game saves and passwords can only be used if they are obtained from a fresh new game, started this year.
- Photos are not required, but they're fun.

Scoring is based on how many times each game has been beaten in a previous year's thread. Each game beaten is worth at least 1 point. Games that have not been beaten every year since 2013 are worth an extra .5 points per non-beaten year. Games that have never been beaten are worth an additional half-point. So each game ranges from 1 to 5 points, as shown in the table below.

    - 100% completion is not required, thus the default or “normal” difficulty is typically fine.
    - Definite ending or credits screens are king. If a game has a “bad” ending and a “good” ending, the “good ending” is typically required.
    - If a game loops indefinitely, only one loop is required.
    - I tried to anchor the requirements for trickier "unending" games to actual in-game metrics, such as high score tables, obvious loops, etc. So if some requirements seem too easy/hard, it’s because I didn’t find a better anchor.
    - Games with indisputable endings might only say “Complete,” but I’d like to eventually include how many levels/stages/rounds are in the game, as that can be useful for first-timers. (e.g., Complete all 8 stages)
    - If anything looks off, or if you want to challenge/discuss these metrics, please do so.

Games not in this list:
- Wisdom Tree unofficial releases
- Pokemon Yellow: this is a Game Boy Color game. You'll see it in the GBC completion thread. Yeah, I picked a side.
- 5 Infogenius titles: These are too much fun and would spoil the rest of the list.
- Mortal Kombat 1&2 (single cart): Games tracked individually, since each has its own cart
- Asteroids/Missile Command: Games tracked individually, since each has its own cart
- Centipede (Accolade) and Centipede (Majesco) are consolidated into one entry, since gameplay is identical across both titles.

Centipede/Millipede and Race Days each include entire games that exist on their own cart. Completion requirements focus only on the modes that aren’t already represented on those other carts.

  • The title was changed to Beat every Game Boy game - 2020 - 0/497

I don't know if we're ready for victory posts yet, but if we are, I knocked out The Simpsons: Bart vs. the Juggernauts:



I don't understand this game. Last year I had what seemed like a near-perfect run and didn't make the $100,000 (ergo, didn't beat the game). This year I botched up a ton of things, including stupidly losing 3 lives on the Apu stage, and still eked out a victory (by a margin of a few hundred dollars).

Thanks! I'd beaten it before back in 2012, I guess just before the NA Game Boy efforts started. I picked it back up in November for last year's effort but got frustrated, and then tried again today and pulled out the win.

I think I liked it more back in 2012, but -- though the Moe's Tavern stages are pretty miserable -- as a game it's a bit better, i.e. more playable, than one might expect.

Not sure if I should replay games I played last year or only do new ones. Either way, I think we should aim for 250 this year!

Same. Not sure if never-beaten games should be the goal, or total games. Last year we beat a total of 237 games, counting PAL and Japanese games. I tried listing the never-beated games in bold on the table, but the bolding doesn't stick to the titles for some reason. I had a similar problem in the Genesis thread.

I definitely have some enemies on the list that have never been beaten. Maybe this is the year.

Edit: here are last year's first-time clears, counting PAL titles:

Me: I should only do games that I haven't beaten before

Also me: Eyy here's Yoshi's Cookie for the 5th year in a row:


It's hilarious that it gives credits to Mario, Yoshi, the cursor, and every cookie. Then it gives a big "AND" and young Splain thinks "are... are they going to thank ME??" But then it shows the Yoshi Cookie instead.

Wow! That screenshot is huge. I'm doing this on retroarch on ubuntu right now, and it is way bigger than I expected. Not sure what's up there. Let me know if it's an issue.

No biggie. (Heh.)

Mario Land 2 is done. It's been years since I played this game. It was fun to revisit, but looking back, I do feel like the levels are a little too short. It's a nice meaty game for someone's first time in Mario though, I'd recommend it for that purpose, as it was my first Mario game too. The only bummer is for the player who gets frustrated when they see that you lose all your boss wins if you game over, but hey, something has to pad the play time, right?

I'm working on Quarth. This game is brutal -- I'm currently stuck on Stage 4-9.

Why on earth did they force players to unlock the game's later levels on a battery-operated system, given that there's no battery on the cart to save your progress? They could have at least given you a code or password to come back to it. As it stands, I'm just leaving my Super Game Boy 2 on overnight.

it's not a Konami game boy game if it isn't cruel to the player!


In all seriousness though, this is a common problem in GB, especially in the earlier releases. Dragon Slayer 1 got a port to GB which is infamous in this regard. Not only is it very slow and clunky, it also takes something like 2-3 hours to finish one segment, so the game can end up being impossible to clear. More to the point, it's believed to even be impossible to finish on real hardware, with some even claiming that trying to beat it caused their game boys to overheat and fail.


I forgot how much drudgery is in Pokemon. I am tempted to just go 1st grader on this and ride my starter in every fight. Never fails in the story mode, gym leaders and elite 4 alike go down hard to a 10 year old with an overleveled charizard packing four fire-type moves.

You ain't kiddin'! I'm now up to Level 5-8 and struggling to get past it. Level 4-9 was a nightmare but I came up with a strategy eventually, and Levels 5-1 through 5-7 were a breeze in comparison.

Ouch re: Dragon Slayer 1. I was interested in playing that at some point but if I do, perhaps I'll stick to emulation.

My hands can stop hurting, for Quarth is done:

lAN0Uhd.jpg MJM6hZi.jpg


I played as the "Fickle Savior" -- how could I not, since it looks rather like a winged, uh, appendage.

Level 4-9 was definitely the hardest by far for me, or maybe I just got better at the game, because Levels 5-8 and 5-9 fell quickly by comparison. At one point I made a short video to strategize about one bottleneck in 5-8, which was actually a huge help -- the next time I got there, I'd planned out what to do and beat the level immediately.

Re: Dragon Slayer I, it's mainly that I'm interested in playing through the Game Boy's first 100 releases or so, as a kind of informal project, so it'd come up in that context. And the game's reputation sort of intrigues me, since I've often enjoyed games that others deemed unplayable...

As promised in the GB weekly competition, here's Dead Heat Scramble done.


This game was needed some skill, but stages 9 and 10 are nearly impossible without a lot of luck for good items. I've played these near perfect before but still wasn't able to beat them when the cars weren't giving me anything good. I might try to go back at beat Bubble Ghost and Battle Unit Zeoth since I'm already practiced with them.

Battle Unit Zeoth done


I forgot just how easy this game is. I just looked back at the competition thread and realized I tied my 1st place score exactly. So, that wraps up the GB weekly competition games so far. SML is already done, and there's no way in hell I'm doing Game & Watch Gallery. I suck at that game.
