...specific parameters like the life count or the number of coins. The Xploder already has cheat codes for a lot of Game Boy games. The number of codes depends on the game.
For example Bugs Bunny Crazy Castle only has one cheat code for unlimited lifes because the game has no more values to manipulate. 🐰
Games like Super Mario Land have more codes due to the fact that values like the ♥ life, 🟡 coin and ⏳ time count can be manipulated.

...when that system launched in North America and Europe in 1988. 🌍
Later all of the available consoles instead included Sonic the Hedgehog, which replaced Altered Beast in part over concerns the latter's themes of zombies and magic were not popular.
🧟➡️🦔
Altered Beast was ported numerous times in addition to its Genesis conversion, including for the Master System by Sega, the Nintendo Entertainment System and the Game Boy Advance. 🕹️

...James Bond in Licence to Kill, but his likeness is used in the game, most notably the opening screens, thus making it Dalton's last appearance as Bond to date. 🍸
It was also the final Bond game to be released by Domark, who had released a series of Bond themed games beginning in 1985 with A View to a Kill. 🕵️

What's your favorite controller❓

I really like the PS3 controller because it still delivers all the functionalities a controller nowadays should have without being to complex or special.

Tolle Sachen. Scheinst ein Fan von Spielen zu (Trick)filmen und -serien zu sein. 😆

Versailles kenne ich, cooles Spiel, kann aber etwas altbacken wirken, wenn die Kindheitserinnerung fehlt.

Es gibt noch ein Myst-like Atlantis auf der PS1. Ist auch recht umfangreich, hat 3 CDs.

Little Big Planet hatte ich kürzlich auch in der Hand und hatte überlegt, es in die PS3 zu werfen. Hab mich dann aber dagegen entschieden, weil mir die Grafik in den Screenshots nicht so gefallen hat.

...by the limitations of the 8-bit NES, Nintendo chose to remake them for the 16-bit SNES. 🕹️
The developers based the updated designs on those from Super Mario World (1990) and strove to retain the feel of the original games. 👌

Metroid Dread #Speedrun Strat
"Artaria Elevator Damage Boost" ⏱️

When leaving Artaria for the first time in Metroid Dread casually you are forced to use a slow elevator.
There is a speedrun strat that avoids the elevator by using damage boost by enemies. 🤾‍♀️ 💨🎯

It only saves a couple of seconds but is not too hard to learn and entertaining to watch. 🤩

The video compares the casual (bottom) with the speedrun strat (top) ending in a time save of five seconds:

...of Yoshi's Island, Donkey Kong Country was released, which resulted in its computer-generated graphics becoming the norm for contemporary SNES games. 🤩
It was too late for the graphic designers to incorporate such a style into Yoshi's Island; instead, they pushed the hand-drawn style further as a way to "fight back". 🖍️

...Nintendo decided to develop a kart racer with slower tracks. 🏎️
They did not decide to incorporate Mario characters until a few months into development. The choice was made after the development team when observing how one kart looked to another driving past it, decided to see what it would look like with Mario in the kart. 🏁
Thinking that having Mario in the kart looked better than previous designs, the idea of a Mario themed racing game was born. ​🏆​

Modern Vintage Gamer just dropped a video about the Pro Fighter X Turbo, a SNES disc copier. ↔️
Such devices were used to copy SNES cartridges to floppy discs and create the ROMs nowadays used to play games via emulators.

...is the same as the original Super Nintendo version with minor changes. 🧝
Four Swords is the multiplayer portion of the cartridge. Four Swords features gameplay similar to A Link to the Past, with a focus on multiplayer; in it, 2 to 4 players must cooperatively work through a series of puzzle-laden dungeons, while competing to collect rupees. 💎
Four Swords was followed in 2004 by a GameCube sequel, Four Swords Adventures. 🏹

Today I'm dropping my third (~1 min). It's about a game I'm sure everyone here played at least once in a lifetime. 🤼‍♂️

What are your thoughts on Street Fighter 2 on Game Boy? 🤔

Is it a good port considering the Game Boy's hardware? 👌

Or do you know even worse ports? 👎

Street Fighter II originally was released for arcades in 1991 and has been ported to numerous consoles and platforms. But did you know that even the Game Boy Classic got his own version of the most influential fighting game ever made?The Game Boy port was released in 1995 and had to be reduced in complexity due to the limited capabilities of the handheld. From the characters side Dhalsim, E. Honda, Vega and their home stages didn't make it into the game. Because the Game Boy only had two buttons, the strength of punches and kicks has to be determined by the duration of button presses and many of the character moves had to be simplified or completely removed. The game runs at less than ten frames per second and in the stages there are no moving background elements or destructible objects. But there are also positive aspects about the Game Boy version. The game offers large, recognizable character sprites and three different game modes. When playing the game on the Super Game Boy, the health bars can be colored and there are unique borders that follow the stage that you're fighting on. By Game Boy standards the game can be seen as an excellent conversion. But the numerous downgrades only made it a bad fallback option for those not having access to a home console or computer.

@mforester

Something tells me that the game footage in the video is ripped of the exact same SF2 module you owned as a kid... 😉

From my todays perspective the port is not very good but playable. I think from the 90s perspective it could have been overwhelming for me, but I didn't know the other versions as a kid.
