Ep23 - The Super Game Boy Show Season 1 Awards Ceremony

April 21, 2017
00:0000:00

I'd like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for listening to The Super Game Boy Show so far. I've really enjoyed putting this out each week, and I hope you've enjoyed listening.

It's high time to pay our respects to the best and worst of what 1989 and 1990 has had to offer.

I really hope you like the show.

See you at the start of June.

Much love

Dan

Soundtrack Sunday Ep12 - Juukou Senki Bullet Battlers

April 16, 2017
00:0000:00

Hi everyone!

Thank you so much for listening to The Super Game Boy Show so far. It's been wonderful to hear your comments and kind words - I really, really appreciate it! Next season is going to be even better, though, simply because of how strong the games were in 1991. It could well have been the best year for the Game Boy library - I'll leave that up to you to decide.

As a thankyou I'd like to play my favourite unknown soundtrack for you this weekend - there's a very good chance that you've never played or even heard of this game. Juukou Senki Bullet Battlers was a Japanese exclusive Game Boy Color title released in 1999. There's as of right now, no English translation available, which is a HUGE shame. If I had the time or the capacity I'd teach myself Japanese so I could provide one; alas, I'm too busy and dumb.

What transcends language barriers, however, is music. This game has one of the best (and largest) soundtracks on the whole system. I'm saying no more than that: settle in for over an hour of amazing Game Boy music. You'll be glad you did.

Much love as always

Dan

Ep22 - The Tower Of Druaga, Chase H.Q., Robocop, In Your Face, Play Action Football

April 14, 2017
00:0000:00

1990 is done. We made it this far. There's really just the dregs of the year remaining to play, but still. We're climbing a really big tower replete with labyrinths and that, to fight the evil Druaga and rescue our 30th-or-so kidnapped maiden. I should put 'Damsel-de-distresser' on my business card at this point...

We're dashing off in our undercover cop car to take down evil terrrrrrists and bank robbers in a strangely lacklustre version of Taito's arcade classic...

Ploughing through street scum to save the day from evil with Robocop. I'd buy that for a dollar...

Then Dan gets to try his hand at some silly b-ball and footbaww games. You know how few shits I give about American sports by this point, right?

There are no reviews next week (or next month, for that matter), but even so, make sure you tune in next Friday for the awesome 1989-90 awards ceremony!! The Super Game Boy Show will return on the 2nd of June with a bleeding amazing line-up, including Trax and Operation C!!! What a show that'll be - two phenomenal games.

 

Seeing as how (at least here in the UK) we have a four day weekend, (Thanks, Zombie Jesus!!) I thought I'd play a very long soundtrack for you this Sunday. The Japanese-exclusive RPG Juukou Senki Bullet Battlers is a stunning unknown of the Game Boy Color library that has been missed by virtually all English speakers. It's a real shame because the game is apparently great, and the soundtrack is colossal. I don't use that word with any hyperbole - there's over FIFTY songs on this week's episode. I couldn't cut any of it. 

How much I wish someone would release an English fan translation of this game, because if the game is anything like the soundtrack, we're really missing something.

Cheers all

Dan

Soundtrack Sunday Ep11 - Project S-11

April 9, 2017
00:0000:00

Episode 11 of Soundtrack Sunday could only really have been Project S-11, right?

Actually that was a fluke that I just noticed now, but even so. This is a weird one. Put together by two Finnish composers Jonne Valtonen and Aleksi Eeben, this soundtrack is a somewhat avant-garde, aggressive and raw-sounding trancy/dancy mass of harsh noises and explosions that really shouldn't come from a Game Boy. I'm not sure how it was done - it's reminiscent of some experimental demoscene and has an overall very unique sound.

Not everyone will like it - some will love it, I'm sure - but at least listen and try to appreciate that this came from the same sound chip that was used to back up Extreme Sports with the Berenstain Bears (literally the only mention that god-awful piece of crap will ever get here on the Super Game Boy Show!). You'll hopefully hear how far this hardware could be pushed. 

Not for the faint of heart, but damn hardcore.

 

Ep21 - The Final Fantasy Legend II, Klax, Battle Unit Zeoth, Gremlins 2: The New Batch, Fighting Simulator 2-in-1: Flying Warriors

April 7, 2017
00:0000:00

A superb RPG - one of the top 3 on the whole system, possibly?? It's a strong genre I know but this one is well, well up there.

Klax has two versions and I'm not sure which is the more disappointing. Probably don't bother with either.

Battle Unit Zeoth is the most gorgeous ass-kicking you'll have this week.

Gremlins 2 is so cute but a bit of a let down in terms of gameplay but it's a movie tie-in that doesn't suck a chode so we can be grateful for it.

Are we going to ever find a decent fighting game on the Game Boy? Maybe. But this week is not that week.

Listen in this Sunday for the superbly avant-garde Project-S11. You'll either love it or hate it.

Cheers

Dan

Soundtrack Sunday Ep10 - April 2017 Mixtape - Japanese SHMUP special!

April 2, 2017
00:0000:00

There were a curious amount of Japanese-exclusive Shoot-em-ups on the Game Boy. Not sure why that it - the genre was popular enough over here and it's not like we had hundreds of games. Even more curiouser was that two of the three I've picked to play today are right up there with the best on the whole system. We'll get to the actual reviews in Season 2 of The Super Game Boy Show (I think they're all 1991 games, as it happens) but for now, just enjoy the brilliant soundtracks that accompany them all.

First up is the brutally difficult and brutally expensive 'Chikyuu Kaihou Gun ZAS', which is famous for having some of the most impressive graphics in the whole library, but on reflection was maybe so difficult that it was thought the game wouldn't catch on.

Secondly we're playing Vattle Giuce (it's nothing to do with Beetlejuice, and I have no clue what the title's supposed to mean) which is not the best but certainly not the worst SHMUP you could play. Again though, the music is great.

And finally, we're rocking out to the Game Boy port of Sagaia (a game in the Darius series) which may be the only title you've heard of, but didn't realise there was a GB game. Well, there is. And it's pretty fricking good.

So yeah, all oddities and rarities but three games that definitely need some love.

 

Love to you lot as well. Here's to a great summer.

Cheers n beers

Dan

Ep20 - Bubble Bobble, Double Dragon II, Power Racer, Kung-Fu Master, Nail ‘N’ Scale

March 31, 2017
00:0000:00

As the Super Game Boy Show crosses the century-line of reviews and 1990's close draws ever nearer, we have another quintet of fine Game Boy titles to play this week.

It wouldn't be Wrestlemania weekend without a couple of slugfests, so in that spirit we're playing Double Dragon II and Kung-Fu Master!

There is a port of an old (and one even older) arcade classic; Bubble Bobble and a version of Sega's actual original dot-eating maze game Head On: Power Racer.

Finally a lovely unique platform puzzler called Nail 'n' Scale which is well worth a go.

Enjoy the show you guys

Dan

Soundtrack Sunday Ep9 - Power Quest

March 26, 2017
00:0000:00

I love this game. One of the weirdest, most underrated Game Boy Color titles, Power Quest, has such fun gameplay and - more pertinant to Sundays - a cracking soundtrack.

RPG-ish Robot punching fun. I hope you enjoy.

 

As always, thesupergameboyshow@gmail.com for all requests and recommendations.

Love love.

Ep19 - F-1 Race, Pac-Man, Battle Bull, Go! Go! Tank, Square Deal, Bubble Ghost

March 24, 2017
00:0000:00

A slightly longer episode this week, as there are only 21 games left in 1990. I've popped the extra one in this week as some of the reviews are a little shorter than usual.

We're playing F-1 Race, Pac-Man, Battle Bull, Go! Go! Tank, Square Deal and Bubble Ghost.

 

After 1990 is finished I'm going to present the 1st Super Game Boy Show end-of-year awards ceremony, detailing the highlights and lowlights of the library up to this point. More details to follow, but suffice to say it should be a lot of fun. There'll be a few weeks' break from the Friday show after that to let me get caught up on the writing for Season 2 of the SGBS - exploring what was possibly the best year for the system; 1991.

Soundtrack Sunday will continue as normal, though, so the feed won't be entirely empty.

Much love as always

Dan

 

Soundtrack Sunday Ep8 - Shantae

March 19, 2017
00:0000:00

Join the world's cutest half-genie on her maiden adventure to save Sequin Land from the evil lady pirate Risky Boots!

Shantae was one of the last games released on the Game boy Color, as late as 2002. It was widely acclaimed back then, and often features in top GBC games lists, but seeing as how it came out a year after the Game Boy Advance was launched, seemed to drift under the radar of a lot of people. Development was started in 1999 at the peak of the GBC hype, but by indie developer WayForward. Back then it was much harder for small devs to put games out - especially on cartridge - so it's understandable why it took so long. We can also attribute the care for detail to this, as the game is a real labour of love, and deserves the cult status it now has.

I'm so glad I bought Shantae when I did (a good decade ago), because as soon as the DSi sequel, Risky's Revenge came out in 2010, this game shot up in price. Two further critically acclaimed sequels later and this is one of the most expensive Game Boy games there is. It's well into triple figures for a cart alone. 

Jake Kaufman did a superb job with the soundtrack. This is a long episode to only feature one game, but once you start listening I think you'll agree that there's too much awesomeness and I couldn't leave a lot of it out!

Ep18 - Rolan’s Curse, Mr Chin’s Gourmet Paradise, Balloon Kid, Godzilla, The Rescue Of Princess Blobette

March 17, 2017
00:0000:00

This week we fight another evil king, collect some balloons, feed some jelly beans to a ballbag, punch some dinosaurs in the face, then move to the country and eat a lot of peaches.

In all seriousness, every game this week is good - you can't go wrong with any one of them. A nice range of genres, too, from RPGs to platformers to puzzlers. I liked this quintet a lot. Nothing really well known but apart from Rolan's Curse quite affordable and obtainable. Give the show a listen and see if you fancy anything.

Thanks for listening!

Soundtrack Sunday Ep7 - Castlevania Games Part II

March 12, 2017
00:0000:00

Welcome back to Transylvania!

This weekend we're playing the second pair of the Game Boy Castlevania games. First off is the super chibi-fied spin-off Kid Dracula. Don't expect Bloody Tears or Dance of Illusions here - it's chirpy and cheerful but still Konami excellent.

Secondly, and finally, we walk along with Sonia through Castlevania Legends - a somewhat underappreciated game but one with typically awesome Castlevania anthems. Some recognisable motifs in there to listen out for, too.

 

I love this franchise, especially the 8-bit games. What more is there to say that hasn't already been?

I hope you enjoy it, folks.

Ep17 - Pop ‘N’ TwinBee, Ghostbusters II. Amida, Radar Mission, After Burst

March 10, 2017
00:0000:00

We're back to the usual high standards this week, thankfully. From the five games here there's only one that I wouldn't recommend.

The ones that I would are pretty much all excellent, and quite varied.

There's a cute-as-heck shmup Pop 'N' TwinBee; a port of the only good NES Ghostbusters game, Ghostbusters II; another Battleship game Radar Mission; and a wicked cool platform puzzler After Burst.

Also some crap about a circle with a face.

Hope you enjoy.

Ep16 - Wheel Of Fortune, Fish Dude, Nobunaga’s Ambition, Astro Rabby, Palamedes

March 3, 2017
00:0000:00

Episode 16 has the game with the most painful soundtrack on the entire system. See if you can tell which I mean - it should be obvious immediately. Word puzzles are fun, though. Fish Dude is as bad as the name would suggest. Dust off that history degree for Nobunaga's Ambition - you're gonna need it. At the other end of the spectrum, Astro Rabby is about as un-serious as a game could be. Palamedes is a greyscale shadow of its home console counterparts.

This week I'm playing a selection of tracks from a chiptune artist called Dya (dyamusic.bandcamp.com)

There's a GB cover of the M.U.L.E. theme, an original collab with Jredd and Groovemaster303, as well as a song from the debut album 'Neon Dreams'.

Aaron Hickman of Dya has been extra generous - I have a download code for the album to give away to a listener! All you have to do is retweet the link to the episode, or link to it some other way, using the hashtag #SuperGBShow and I'll put you into the draw to win a download copy of 'Neon Dreams'!

Tune in on Sunday for March's #SoundtrackSunday mixtape! Feat. Asterix, Battletoads, Metroid II and plenty more!

Soundtrack Sunday Ep5 - Castlevania Games Part I

February 26, 2017
00:0000:00

Now then.

It wasn't going to be long before Castlevania was featured on Soundtrack Sunday, was it? SGBS is dictated by chronology - I don't get to choose what games I'm playing each week, but thankfully, with Sunday's show I most certainly can.

Castlevania has, with barely an exception, constantly outrageous music, and the four Game Boy titles follow suit beautifully. Even Legends - which wasn't a great game in itself - has haunting orchestration that still sounds stunning today.

Four, you say?

Don't forget Kid Dracula, guys and gals. The cutesy-poo platformer is a direct spin-off, and is undoubtedly part of the franchise. It has awesome music too, and this is the best place to feature it.

Of course, four games would make for a long episode, so this week and March 12th will be a two-part exploration of the handheld 8-bit Castlevania games, starting with Adventure and Belmont's Revenge.

 

If you're super sexy and nice to me I may one day play the music from the three Game Boy Advance games. It's out of my remit a smidge, but heck - I'll do it if you're well behaved.

Love

Dan

Ep15 - Side Pocket, Maru’s Mission, Sunsoft Grand Prix, Skate Or Die: Bad ‘N’ Rad, Volleyfire

February 24, 2017
00:0000:00

Welcome to Episode 15 of the Super Game Boy Show! It sucks!

Well, hopefully the show itself isn't too bad. The games are not the greatest five you could've hoped for, though.

Side Pocket is a poor representation of pool. Maru's Mission isn't bad but too easy. Sunsoft Grand Prix is a big fat DNF, Skate or Die should've just been called Die, and Volleyfire is a great idea that was not followed through properly.

If you want to listen, go ahead but I won't blame anyone who skips this episode!!

Seriously though, don't skip the episode. I'll never forgive you.

 

This week on Soundtrack Sunday, be sure to check out part 1 of our awesome Castlevania soundtrack two-parter. We're whipping our... whips... back and forth to Castlevania Adventure and Belmont's Revenge. It's going to be brilliant.

Soundtrack Sunday Ep4 - Trip World

February 19, 2017
00:0000:00

Join Yakopoo on his quest to retrieve the flower of peace so that serenity will return to his disarranged world. 

This game is remarkable for being amongst the most visually and audibly stunning titles on the Game Boy. It's a ton of fun to play, and is also one of the rarest and most expensive GB games, especially if you want one of the coveted European versions! It's the second most amount of money I've ever spent on a game (the first being Shantae for GBC). It's an absolutely beautiful piece of art that was criminally underappreciated in the nineties. I'm going to try to give it some love now.

Ep14 - Power Mission, Extra Bases, HAL Wrestling, Boulder Dash, DuckTales

February 17, 2017
00:0000:00

boop BOOP boop BOOP boop BADOOP BADOOP LIFE IS LIKE A HURRICANE That's right, everyone. It's finally time to play DuckTales!!

Oh, and I also play another baseball game, but this one's actually playable,

There's a wrestling game that even makes James Ellsworth look good,

A lovely rendition of the classic Boulder Dash,

and something about some boats and that. It's a bit like Battleship but then not really.

 

Tune into #SoundtrackSunday this weekend to listen to the glorious Trip World soundtrack!

Love you

Dan

Soundtrack Sunday Ep3 - Pokémon Trading Card Game

February 12, 2017
00:0000:00

Today we're playing one of the fullest Game Boy Color soundtracks - Pokémon Trading Card Game by Ichiro Shimakura. It's quite a long episode but there's too much that I couldn't leave out of the playlist. A very uplifting set of tunes for your Sunday!

Thanks for listening.

Ep13 - Paperboy, Ishido: The Way of Stones, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Fall Of The Foot Clan, Amazing Penguin, Bionic Battler

February 10, 2017
00:0000:00

This week on The Super Game Boy Show we look at the disappointment that was the lazy Game Boy port of Paperboy, a very interesting tile-based board game, celebrate #NationalPizzaDay2017 with the Ninja Turtles, join yet another anthropomorphic penguin (it is still winter, I guess) and have a massive tear up with some robots. Fun times!

Also we have a featured chiptune musician this week: Metroyd Myk! The two songs played on the show are 'I Can't Break' and 'Heart of the Juggernaut'. They're both heavy as hell, with a really tribal, dirty bass and percussion. Equal parts progressive and grungy. Visit the BandCamp page here: https://metroydmyk.bandcamp.com/

Make sure you check out #SoundtrackSunday this week, 7AM GMT as usual. The first real look at anything Pokémon-y on the show, as we play the stunning soundtrack to the Pokémon Trading Card Game by Ichiro Shimakura. Have so many uplifting melodies ever been crammed into one Game Boy game? I'm not sure. Oh boy, it's a good one.

Thanks for listening everyone! Have a great weekend.

Dan

Soundtrack Sunday Ep1 - After Burst

January 29, 2017
00:0000:00

Welcome to the Super Game Boy Show's sister podcast, Soundtrack Sunday!

In addition to the main Friday show, each Sunday there will be a full Game Boy soundtrack for your chiptune-loving ears! All the episodes will feature the choiciest pieces from some of the best audible offerings from the outstanding Game Boy / Game Boy Color libraries. Most episodes will stick to one game, except for the first Sunday in every month, when the show will feature an hour-long mixtape of some of the best songs whose games don't necessarily justify a full episode. 

I'll do my best to play some of those soundtracks that don't get enough recognition, but of course the classics will not be neglected!

This week it's the Japanese exclusive platform shooter, After Burst! The composer is Atsuhiro Motoyama.

Any requests / recommendations, contact me on Twitter @SuperGBShow, or email me at thesupergameboyshow@gmail.com
