Check back here soon for more pictures and video of people playing the Gameman.
The GameMan is a fully functional 6.5 times scale GameBoy, complete with working cartridges. It is over 3 feet tall, and weighs just over 100 lbs. with a cartridge.
Tetris (1987), the flagship game for the GameBoy system in the early days. All original GameBoy systems were bundled with the Tetris cartridge, which made it one of the few games that people were actually able to play in two player mode with, simply because everyone who had a GameBoy, had Tetris. It's appeal spans the generations, and brought both adults and children together in their quest to drop blocks. Even today, it remains the standard to which all puzzle games are measured against.
Super Mario Land (1989), the debut of the infamous plumber on the GameBoy platform. With Mario's superstar success on the NES system, it was only logical for him to make the jump into the portable world. Although slightly different in story from his other games (There's no Bowser, the main villian is an evil alien), gameplay closely resembled the format of the original Super Mario Bros. on the NES. For many early Gameboy players, this was the second game they owned.
Pokemon Red Version (1998), Along with it's companion Blue Version, the Pokemon series completely revitalized the Gameboy, and in many ways, the entire Nintendo company. At a time when interest in Nintendo was waning and the N64 system was being slapped around by Sony and Sega, Pokemon brought the Gameboy back into the fore-front. Since then, there has been numerous Gameboy and N64 games, a television show, several movies, and a trading card franchise. There are plans in the works for GameCube and GameBoy Advance versions. The primary goal in Pokemon is to find, capture and train various monsters, all in an effort to become the world's greatest Pokemon trainer
The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening (1993) This was Link's first appearance on the GameBoy system. This adventure was hailed by many as one of the finest RPGs ever developed for the GameBoy. Set on the mysterious Kholint island, Link is a castaway and must find a way to escape from the island and return to his beloved homeland of Hyrule. This game was later remade as a color version in 1997 as The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening DX.
Kirby's Dreamland (1992), This was Kirby's debut appearance. Cute, fluffy, and pink, Kirby quickly used his enourmous appetite to suck his way to stardom, and has become one of the most recognizable of Nintendo's characters. It has spurned countless games on every system that Nintendo has produced.
