a beautiful take on a classic

Reviewed By: djwyman on 11 Feb 2020

As a kid I have fond memories of playing this game on my shiny new green screened Gameboy for hours. Today trying to revisit this game in either black and grey or green and black kinda sucks. But apply this color and the game comes alive. After applying this hack I converted the ROM into a .cia for my 3ds and playing it on there you would think this game was originally an SNES game. Thank you for your hard work.
