The best GameBoy Games to play

1. Tetris
First Release: June 14, 1989 (Japan)
Most people would say that Tetris is a wonderful and clever game – and as easy as it is to learn and play it, it’s pretty hard to master. All one had to do was to place some shapes in some certain order so as to complete a kind of line that is automatically cleared, as if you were building puzzles from the very scratch, but each puzzle felt a little different.
