Give any GB ROM a SGB border. Pretty cool! I haven't had a chance to play around with it yet.

Just found dis for the GBC

by Manfred Trenz

Wow! Thanks for posting this - never heard of it either.

Stage 1 was wild! Very cool. I was like, "Hey that's the graphics from Rendering Ranger!" then I realized who did this. The fact this was developed when the GBC was relevant is also crazy. This should've been made.

Edit: just sat down with this again to see how much is in the proto. It's a full damn game. Highly recommend. Starts out easy, gets pretty scrappy towards the end. I noticed it doesn't have a game over screen, just keeps respawning after you lose all your lives, so that sucks. But so damn impressive. The music is some of the best I've ever heard on the hardware. It's as if Future Crew made a game. I would happily fork over money if someone finished this and sold it.

Been playing this one a bit.

I never even heard of it until I was looking up a full list of DB games.

Seems that everyone who played it really likes it and you hardly see people mentioning it. For a GBC DBZ game it's quite unique and actually rather fun too.

This one was awesome. Up until DBZ Super Sonic Warriors (via Arc System Works) hit the gba, this was the coolest portable DBZ game since DBZ Goku Gekitouden on the original gameboy. Sank tons of hours into this one back in the day.

Dude, Supersonic is still one I go back to these days. It's a wonderful "upgrade" of sorts to Legends on Saturn/PS1. Extreme Butoden on 3DS by Arc is also quite good. Never did give Supersonic 2 on the DS a shot. Any good?

100% agree. SSW1 on gba and Butouden 3 (guilty pleasure lol) are the oldschool DBZ games I return to the most.

Super Sonic Warriors 2 on DS is great and definitely worth checking out if you’ve never given it a shot. It has a much larger roster, deeper combat, transformations, support characters, and way more modes to enjoy.

However, it also made enough changes to the mechanics of the game that make the overall combat feel a little slower than it’s predecessor. The fighting in SSW1 just feels faster and more frenetic, so I always tend to return to the original rather than the sequel as a personal preference. Let me know what you think if you check it out.

Extreme Butouden was badass (especially since that’s the first time I recall being able to play as SSGSS/Blue in a vs game). It was fun despite being completely busted, though these days it feels like an interesting prototype for DB FighterZ lol

Extreme Butouden doesn't get talked about a lot (probably because it's a handheld Fighter...), but that game is great and definitely feels like a precursor to DBZ FighterZ.

I'd actually take it over DBZ FighterZ any day since I'm not really into those hyper-chaotic Fighters and Butouden is paced more to my liking.

Trying to give MegaMan 5 a serious go. Goddamn it's hard...also I am old and have a short attention span. But jeebus.

Nice SGB color palette though.
