To further celebrate the Nintendo Game Boy’s 25th anniversary, we’ve decided to look back at the handheld and discuss what may be the greatest titles to ever hit the portable. With hundreds of stand-out releases on offer, it’s been no easy feat compacting the handheld’s library down to a top ten.
Twenty five years ago today, Japanese gamers would soon be waking up to a day like no other, one where the term ‘handheld gaming’ was about to be born. The Nintendo Game Boy had arrived, promising pocket Mario adventures along with other portable NES-like experiences on the go. And as they say, the rest is history.
After buying 3D Realms in March, Interceptor Entertainment has been rooting through the archives it acquired to get more of an idea on the company's history.

For quite some time now Elektronite have been working on a rather impressive game for the Intellivision - one which appears to push the system to its upper limits.

Heavily based on Namco's timeless Pac-Man, Munchkin was the Videopac's answer to the arcade classic - and inevitably one which landed Philips in lawsuit territory. Nevertheless this gobble-em-up clone has since become one of the most memorable titles on the Videopac, so much so it has now been unofficially ported to the Atari 2600.
