Lists of Gameboy (original) games that have been colorized?
« on: October 22, 2018, 05:49:05 pm »
Hey guys, new here, first post.  I was wondering if there is a way to pull up only original Gameboy games that now have Colorized patches.  I've got Super Mario Land 1 and 2 as well as Metroid 2 already.  Its been quite exhausting pulling up each game individually.  Is there any way to pull up only those games that have Color Patches?

I don't think our Search function is made to be that narrowly specific for searching hack functionality.

If I'm not mistaken, those three would be pretty much it so far.  It's not an easy thing to do properly.

There's For the Frog the Bell Tolls, too, but I think that's still WIP.

There's also the fact that the color hack for Metroid 2 (the one made by toruzz) is bug-ridden, and often crashes. Although, there is the Konami GB Collections released in Europe. They're pretty much full color versions of various GB games. Most notably, Castlevania Adventure, Belmont's Revenge, Operation C, Gradius, and Frogger, among others.

My guess is the OP was referring to unofficial colorizations (by "patches").

Yeah I wasn't able to find anything outside of those 3 mentioned earlier.  But thanks for the Konami Collection mention, I think I will get those for a few more additions to the color palette. 

Sorta related to the topic, does anyone know if the GB Emulator used in Retropie has any color options that can be applied manually?  Is that even a thing?! :huh:
