A gaming classic makes its way to Game Boy, though the results are somewhat less than classic. Hyper Lode Runner offers a fairly sloppy take on this legendary platformer, with no learning curve to speak of and a completely useless edit mode.

Konami's portable debut takes the form of a strange, fascinating, and pretty entertaining motorcycle racing game called Motocross Maniacs. I'm surprisingly terrible at it, even after working at mastering it for the past couple of weeks. Despite that, it's actually quite a lot of fun — and it's quite unique as far as racing games go. I wouldn't quite call it a hidden gem of the Game Boy library, but it's definitely at least on par with a respectable piece of costume jewelry.
