Well, it might not be the objectively best handheld game in any way, but there was no GB game I owned as a kid that game me as much fun and Boxxle and Turrican. I choose the latter due to the music.

Has to be the Tomytronic 3D sky attack. Had it for Christmas as a 10 year old. Loved it until my sister nicked it years later. I also loved the movie Tron that came out the year before, so this was like shooting down the recogniser ships in the movie.

Is 201 a handheld special? Well, handhelds i've owned a loved, let me count the ways i love thee!

Game Gear Shinobi - clearly the greatest Shinobi game ever created.

NHL 07 (PSP) - clearly the greatest handheld sports game ever created.

Mario Kark 8 DX (Switch) - clearly the greatest handheld driving game ever created.

Mario Odyssey (Switch) - clearly the greatest handheld platformer ever created.

Scramble (Grandstand) - arcade fun and you can pretty much hold it in your hand. Sort of. Massive hands, like.

My favourite is Metroid 2 on Gameboy, it really captures the feel of the original. But surely Pokemon Red/blue is the greatest. I've replayed them more than any other game.

I was tempted to go for Mini Munchman by Grandstand. However, I will go for Geometry Wars Galaxies on Nintendo DS. That has amazing graphics and sound. Geometry Wars Galaxies is a game I can play forever.

Probably wouldn't say Galaxy Invader 1000 was my favourite, but one of my first, and whenever I see I picture of it I still regret not retrieving it from my parents' loft when they moved house.
