C64 games on GBC/GBA?

Post by Rockford » Sat Jun 24, 2006 10:16 am

Were there many C64 games converted to the Game Boy systems?
I have Dropzone on the GBC, which is a an excellent conversion, and
Boulderdash on the GBA, which as well as a new game has the classic original.

Any more?

Didn't one of the International Karates come out on GBC?

There's a Euro-only IK+, which is basically a port of the Amiga version. (There's also the appalling IK Advanced, which should be avoided under all circumstances.) Similarly, Speedball II is available, along with Wings, Defender of the Crown and some other stuff from that era that escapes my frying brain right now.

Theres also of course Dragons Lair on the GB which is actually the game 'Rollercoaster' just with different graphics.

Has anyone played the Wings port? I loved the Amiga version but am relucatant to buy the GBA one in case it turns out to be trash.

The Defender of the Crown game was pretty good-quite faithful to the 16-bit original
