Video Works by Jeremy Parish

An in-depth look at Game Boy's first licensed game: The Bugs Bunny Crazy Castle... AKA Mickey Mouse... AKA Roger Rabbit. Honestly, stick a comic book super hero in here and you have just about every major licensing property wrapped up in a single video game. The insane collision of brands involved in this single tiny Game Boy cart is honestly quite baffling.

Oh, and also, I talk a little bit about the game, too.

One part statement of intent, one part shameful confessional, it's: The first episode of Metroidvania Chronicles! The first of many to come.

Look, just go to and it'll all make sense.

Slow-paced puzzle games made a perfect fit for Game Boy, and few games were slower or more puzzling than Boxxle, aka Sokoban. Shove crates — for love! Learn all about the rich history of the game that served as absolute zero on Old Man Murray's Time-To-Crate Scale.

I apologize in advance for the music, which will drive you insane. But just imagine how much worse it was for me as I edited this video.

As always, please to read Game Boy World for more of this stuff.

Game Boy World #000: Game Boy DMG-001 [Nintendo, 1989]

This update has been a long time in coming, because it's by far the most complex and challenging video project I've ever attempted by my sad little amateurish self. But here we are at last: A retrospective on the Game Boy hardware itself. 

I've attempted to minimize focus on the system's tech specs and defer discussion of specific software to those games' respective retrospectives. Instead, this feature delves into the creative culture at Nintendo that gave birth to the Game Boy, while trying to determine its place in the game marketplace of the 1990s.

Now that this massive endeavor has been put to rest, expect far more frequent updates to Game Boy World — hopefully weekly! And soon we'll be getting into Atari Lynx as well...

Check out the full Game Boy hardware retrospective on Game Boy World:
