List of GB color hacks
« on: November 28, 2020, 03:33:02 am »
Anyone know where I can find a list of hacks for GB titles that introduce colour?

I kinda figure I can't be the first person to ask, however I can't find it - maybe I am being dumb.

Creating these hacks is deceptively difficult and you shouldn't expect to see a lot of them.

Probotector/Operation C
That wasn't really a hack; that's from the Konami GB Collection.

Has anybody gotten the Crazy Castle 2 color hack working?  I've never been able to make it work.

Pokemon Red
There's actually more than one version of this, and both include Blue.

There's the GBC colorization that changes the games to the GBC only format, and then there's Shin Pokemon Red/Blue that keeps compatibility with the other platforms by backporting Yellow's color mode (also with bugfixes, better AI, all 151 available, and such).

I still find it mindblowing that there's no such Color hack for Pokemon Yellow.
That's the only one I wish had a coloured version, or even a Red++ kind of treatment :/

There's a patch for making standalone Castlevania 2 from the konami gb collection too
Another one for improving Donkey Kong Land III colors (japanese)
And the Wario Land 2 enhanced graphics
