★★Take A Look At The Games Freezer Top 5 GameBoy Games From The Last 25 Years★★ #RetroGaming #GamersUnite

So as we continue the GameBoy 25 Year Birthday celebrations and pay homage to the Grey Marvel that is the GameBoy, we begin to look back at the last 25 years worth of GameBoy games and pick out the cream of the crop.


There have been some absolute beauties that have harnessed the little box over these years in order to produce a great game from 4 shades of grey to provide a shaded LCD experience like no other before OR since!

The hardware was not powerful but despite the GameBoys technical limitations, amazing, addictive, endearing and sometimes complex games were produced that had gamers hooked from day 1 of the GameBoy's release in 1989

With that in mind, it's going to be hard to whittle the extensive Gameboy catalogue down to just 5.
 
In order to create our Top 5 we are only looking at games that could be played on the classic GameBoy as it's the Original GameBoy that’s 25 Years old and not its colour brother from another mother.

Anyway enough of all that, let's get on with this as we give you Games Freezer's Top 5 GameBoy games from the last 25 years!

Every day in The Freezer is like Christmas as we get to play the best RetroGames and New Games out there!

 

Also it's pretty chilly in here whether it's Winter Or Summer!

 

Now it's Christmas Eve, we are well truly in the Christmas Spirit and we started to reminisce about years gone by when a Christmas Themed game would always spring up around this time of year.

 

Now we've had a chat about it over some mulled wine and some of The Freezer's home made Christmas Cake and we have drunkenly decided on these 5 Christmas treats for all you Freezer Followers........MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A FREEZER NEW YEAR!

 
 
5. Christmas Nights Into Dreams - Saturn
 
 
Christmas Nights was a two-level game of Nights into Dreams that was released in December 1996.
Nights into Dreams was a cool series and we love playing this game at Christmas!

4.Home Alone - SNES
 
 
The Home Alone film is a modern day Christmas classic! 

The same can't be said for the Video Game but you have to include it in this Top 5 because at the time we were just so hyped about playing a Home Alone Game!

We like the battle vs the spider in the basement best (although it had nothing to do with the film plot!!)  
 
3. Angry Birds - Christmas Seasons - Android
 


Angry Birds has saved our sanity over the years on long journeys and boring commutes, so what better way to travel to your folks for the holiday season than to whip out your phone and have an Angry Birds Seasons Greedings Session to get you into the Christams mood!

2. James Pond 2: Codename RoboCod - Megadrive



We were big fans of this on the Megadrive and loved every minute of James Pond's second adventure!

Here's what it's all about!
Dr. Maybe has taken over Santa's workshop and is holding Santa's workers hostage.

Many of Santa's helpers have been turned into Dr Maybe's horrible assistants.

It's down to James Pond to infiltrate Santa's grotto, free the Santa's captive helpers, retrieve the stolen toys for the children of the world, and defeat Dr. Maybe once and for all !!

HURRRAH!!

1. Christmas Lemmings - Amiga



Our number 1 Christmas themed game has to be Christmas Lemmings.

Lemmings ahs so much charm and wonderful gameplay, add into that mix a Christmas setting and you have a game that is just perfect Christmas play for everyone!

If you search out one Christmas themed retrogaming gem this Christmas, let it be Christmas Lemmings!
 

What's your favourite Christmas themed Video Game of all time?

 

Think about it over the holiday season and let us know!

 

HAPPY CHRISTMAS TO ALL OUR VIDEO GAMING FRIENDS OF THE FREEZER!

☆The Games Freezer Top 5 Greatest Video Games Accomplishments Ever☆ #GamersUnite #RetroGaming

In the days before XBOX & Playstation Achievements / Trophies you were judged on a certain Holy Grail Of Gaming Pecking Order.

 

Your prowess was judged by a number of games you had completed or particular Video Games related moves that you were able to accomplish.

 

We have taken a look back at our TOP 5 Toughest Video Games Accomplishments in order to show you what we think were our crowning glories over the past 30+ Years!

 

This should be interesting!

 

Where shall we start?

 
 
The Beginning Of A Very Long Video Gaming Journey!
 
This game is notoriously spiteful as it sends you back to the start of the game after you complete it for the first time!
 
You are then tasked with working all the back through the game in order to complete it.
This game was great BUT this really got our back up, instead of getting MAD we got EVEN!
 

 
Super Ghouls N Ghosts - BEATEN!
 
 




 
 
What A Beauty!
Half Life is considered to be one of the games of a generation, a real video game changer, it set up the almost flawless Half Life 2 and gave birth to the most anticipated 3rd instalment since Dr Dre promised the follow up to 2001!
 
The one thing that really kicks you in the nether regions with this game though, is the fact that Gonarch is one tough mudder!
 
We mean, to the point where you are using so much ammo that you are not even sure if it is actually dealing it any damage or not.....it's a worrying state of affairs and it's guaranteed to ensure that you will play this horrible headcrab sack on multiple occasions over a number of sittings before finally watching it explode........the day you do this is a day you will never forget!
 
 
 
Gonarch - BEATEN!

 
 
 
"Hit any button 13 times while rotating the D-Pad clockwise, on the 13th tap hold down the button until tipoff"
 
This doesn't sound like such an accomplishment does it?
 
Well think again, this cheat would shred a novices thumb if done incorrectly.....
 
Also it had to be done in the short time you had between choosing your teams and for the match to begin!
 
So tough was it that we only knew one guy who could achieve this amazing feat and he could do this on both joy pads in order that both players could enjoy the luxury that was Super Dunks from the Half Way Line!!
 
This cheat was so much better than the BIG HEADS cheat as it almost made it a different game completely, so much fun - NBA JAM WE LOVE YOU!
 
 
 
SUPER DUNKS CHEAT - BEATEN! (With A Little Help From Our Friends)
 
 
 
 
Platform Games have this habit of keeping you stuck on one particular tricky section for hours, days and sometimes even weeks.
 
The whole point of this accomplishment was to discover the secret exit on Cheese Bridge Area C
 
But BOY was this a toughie! The amount of times that this level had to be replayed in order to complete this part of the game fully was just immense. OVER and OVER and OVER again just to be rewarded with another level in the endless quest to find all 99 Levels!
 
So, how were you meant to complete Cheese Bridge Area C via The Secret Exit?
 
Well read on as we take an excerpt from HERE 
 
"Cheese Bridge Area (C)
 
To get this, get to the very end of the level as either 1) Caped Mario or 2) Mario and Yoshi. 
 
Below I have explanations for getting to the secret exit as numbered. The secret exit is behind the goal gate, and you have to go under the regular one to reach the secret one. These are strategies to do just that, listed in order of difficulty (lower the number, greater the difficulty).
 
1) This is incredibly hard to do. If you are Caped Mario only without Yoshi, you're going to have to find a good place to start flying from. It is my experience that the long wooden bridge before the yellow pipe is the best place to do this. Now, fly forward and take a dive as you see the goal gate. You must go under it and then pull up at the last second to go right past it. Easier said than done, huh? Good luck with that.
 
2) First off, getting there with Yoshi is rather difficult. When you reach the yellow pipe in the normal guide, go back a bit to the long bridge. Now run forward and take off flying. As you come down, Yoshi will have to bounce on chainsaws in the air to land on the platform to the right. Now, when you reach the goal gate, jump forward to get under it and then jump off of Yoshi when you are under it and to the right. You will land on stable land past the goal gate. Too bad Yoshi had to make the ultimate sacrifice, though.
Pick one of these strategies to get past the normal goal gate. From there, go right and jump to a platform with a 3-Up Moon on it. Then jump through the tape of the secret goal gate to the right."
 
The chosen method to beat this was using our good old friend Yoshi, the moment that Yoshi made the sacrifice and Mario popped up under the GOAL GATE was indescribable .... a video gaming moment to cherish forever!
 
 
 
Super Mario World - Cheese Bridge Area C "Secret Exit" - BEATEN!
 
 
 
Don't be fooled by his Santa Beard and his barely alive looks, this guy is super tough!
 
Metal Gear fans talk of Psycho Mantis being tough to beat but "The End" is in a different league, this guy is so tough that you might not even see him for 20 minutes at a time, but BOY can he see you and every move you make he will punish you!
 
Trying to beat him had us tearing our hair out for weeks on end.
 
It just felt impossible. We couldn't even land a shot on him. It just felt like the game was saying
"YE SHALL NOT PASS......EVER!" 
 
Little did we know that yes we would eventually defeat "The End" but maybe not in the way that we had thought was possible........
 
Yes, that's right we didn't actually land the last shot into "The End" to bring about the end of him.....no we actually took soooo long ...... he errrrrr DIED OF OLD AGE!!!
 
Yes that's right, the old fella got fed up with waiting for us and pegged it, snuffed it, kicked the bucket!
 
Hideo Kojima and his team were so clued up that they realised that maybe us mere mortals might not be good enough to defeat this dude and after 1 week of play, if you havn't defeated him you get greeted with "The End Dies Of Old Age" sequence....
 
We stumbled across this due to our ineptitude but there is also a way of tricking the save game into thinking a weeke has passed by saving and then forwarding your PS2 on by a week (BUT THAT'S CHEATING!)
 
Anyway, our number 1 accomplishment is a bitter sweet one.
 
It was purely a moment of relief that we'd never have to play this old fella again!
 
 
 
"THE END" - BEATEN (By Old Age!)

 

Now that we've shared our Top 5 Greatest Video Games Accomplishments, why don't you share the love and let us know yours?

☆Games Freezer Top 5 Videogames By Genre☆ #Retrogaming #GamersUnite

We love lists here at Games Freezer.

We often while away hours in the chiller compiling lists of our faves!

Fave Foods, Fave Films, Fave Freezers !!

So what are we going to do with all these lists?

Well we decided we would piece together our finest 5 video games from each video game genre for your delectation.

Let us begin with the Genres and definitions…….

(as defined by our dear friend Wikipedia)

Followed by a Lovely Dose Of ScreenShot Heaven!



Action Game
 
Definition: 
 
"An action game requires players to use quick reflexes, accuracy, and timing to overcome obstacles. It is perhaps the most basic of gaming genres, and certainly one of the broadest. Action games tend to have gameplay with emphasis on combat. There are many subgenres of action games, such as fighting games and first-person shooters."

Beat 'em Up and Hack and Slash
 
"Beat 'em up and hack and slash games have an emphasis on one-on-many close quarters combat, beating large numbers of computer-controlled enemies.

Gameplay involves the player fighting through a series of increasingly difficult levels.
The sole distinction between these two genres are that beat 'em ups feature hand-to-hand combat, and hack and slash games feature melee weaponry, particularly bladed weapons. Both genres feature little to no use of firearms or projectile combat. 


This genre became popular in 1987 with the release of Double Dragon, leading to a large number of similar games. 
 
The fighting style is usually simpler than for versus fighting games. In recent times, the genre has largely merged with that of action-adventure, with side-scrolling levels giving way to more open three-dimensional areas, and melee combat co-existing with shooting and puzzle elements."



  1. Double Dragon (Master System)

  2. Dragon Ninja (Arcade)

     

  3. Streets Of Rage 2 (Megadrive)

     

  4. TMNT: Turtles In Time (SNES)

     

  5. Shinobi (Master System)


Fighting Game
 
"Fighting games emphasize one-on-one combat between two characters, one of which may be computer controlled.

These games are usually played by linking together long chains of button presses on the controller to use physical attacks to fight. 

Many of the movements employed by the characters are usually dramatic and occasionally physically impossible. 

Combat is almost always one-on-one,though there are some exceptions such as the Super Smash Bros. series and Guilty Gear Isuka, pitting up to four combatants in the fight at one time. 

This genre first appeared with the release of Sega's Heavyweight Boxing and later became a phenomenon, particularly in the arcades, with the release of Street Fighter II."

Platform Game
"Platform games (platformers) are a subgenre of action game. 

These games involve traveling between platforms by jumping (very occasionally other means are substituted for jumping, like swinging or bouncing, but these are considered variations on the same mechanic). 

Other traditional elements include running and climbing ladders and ledges. Platformers frequently borrow elements from other genres like fighting and shooting (such as the Castlevania series, which incorporates role-playing). 

They are most often associated with iconic video game mascots like Donkey Kong, Sonic the Hedgehog, Mario, Megaman, Samus and Rayman, though platform games may have any theme."

Action-adventure games tend to focus on exploration and usually involve item gathering, simple puzzle solving, and combat."

Stealth Game
 
"Stealth games are a somewhat recent sub-genre, sometimes referred to as "sneakers" or "creepers" to contrast with the action-oriented "shooter" sub-genre. These games tend to emphasize subterfuge and precision strikes over the more overt mayhem of shooters. Most have first- or third-person shooter elements. Some of the most known stealth games are the Thief series or the Hitman games."

Survival Horror
 
"Survival horror games focus on fear and attempt to scare the player via traditional horror fiction elements such as atmospherics, death, the undead, blood and gore. One crucial gameplay element in many of these games is the low quantity of ammunition, or number of breakable melee weapons. A notable example is Resident Evil 4"

"Mystery House for the Apple II was the first adventure game to use graphics in the early home computer era.

Graphic adventure games emerged as graphics became more common. 

Adventure games began to supplement and later on replace textual descriptions with visuals (for example, a picture of the current location). 

Early graphic adventure games used text-parsers to input commands. 

The growing use of mice led to the "point-and-click" genre of adventure games, where the player would no longer have to type commands. 

The player could, for example, click on a hand icon and then on a rope to pick up the rope."

Most cast the player in the role of one or more "adventurers" who specialize in specific skill sets (such as melee combat or casting magic spells) while progressing through a predetermined storyline. 

Many involve maneuvering these character(s) through an overworld, usually populated with monsters, that allows access to more important game locations, such as towns, dungeons, and castles."
