metroid ii game boy priceWhat’s a copy of Metroid II worth?

Back in the early days of the original Game Boy’s life there were a bunch of junk titles, but there were also some amazing titles and Metroid II is certainly one of them.

The action-adventure sequel of the popular NES game finds the return of Samus, who is on a mission again to rid a planet of alien Metroids.  The game ends in a surprising plot twist which sets the stage for Super Metroid which of course was released on the Super Nintendo a few years later.

Metroid II was an amazing game whose only real flaw was the Game Boy hardware itself which was notoriously blurry, but that problem is solved with a Super Game boy or in any of the iterations of Game Boy Advance.

So what’s a copy of Metroid II worth?  While you might be able to find sub-par condition copies for as low as $10, most copies with little to no wear will set you back $15 – $20.

When the CastleVania Adventure was released on Game Boy it solidified the fact that 3rd party support would be there and our favorite franchises would survive on the small screen!

What’s a copy of Game Boy Tetris worth?

tetris game boy priceWhat’s a copy of Game Boy Tetris worth?

Who hasn’t played Tetris before?  Quite possibly the most famous version ever made, Tetris for the original Game Boy is easily recognizable.

As a pack-in game for many years the formula was simple: buy a Game Boy and get Tetris.  Not surprising many people bought a Game Boy for Tetris!

But after all of these years are copies of the game actually worth anything?  Surprisingly the game isn’t as inexpensive as you might think.  As the original pack in game many copies have seen their fair share of abuse.  Faded, worn, ripped, and missing label copies are very easy to find for cheap.

But nice clean copies of Tetris are still easy to find as well and I know from my own personal experience that I’ve found a number of copies in thrift stores at relatively inexpensive prices.

So what’s a copy of Game Boy Tetris worth?  Expect to pay as little as $2 for those worn copies, and as much as $7 to $10 for a nice clean copy.

Super Mario Land 2 is a natural sequel to the original Super Mario Land and features several new Game Play elements that makes the game stand on its own.

A new power up, a carrot, is introduced which allows Mario to gently defy gravity by flickering a set of rabbit ears.  Larger sprites are used in the game which brings more personality and expression to not just Mario but to the enemies as well.  An over world map which had become tradition at this point in the Super Mario universe groups the various “lands” together and allows the gamer to approach them in their own unique order.

The various lands feature many new enemies and bosses and while the game is very different to most Super Mario games it is easily recognizable and playable.

Like the previous Super Mario Land game, Super Mario Land 2 has memorable music and bonus games to earn power ups or 1ups.  Again, a new protagonist is introduced – Wario, whose castle is accessible only after obtaining 6 gold coins located at the end of each of the lands.

All in all Super Mario Land 2 is a great game deserving to be in any Game Boy gamer’s collection.

So what’s a copy of Super Mario Land 2 worth?  While you can find decent copies on eBay for around $5, a really nice one with a clean intact label can run as much as $12.

super mario land boxThis past Tuesday Super Mario Land turned 26, so what is a copy of Super Mario Land Worth?

It was obviously clear that if Nintendo wanted the Game Boy to be successful it had to have a Mario Game with it.  And although it was probably best to pack in Tetris, Super Mario Land would have been a great alternative.

Launched with the Game Boy, Super Mario Land was a new adventure far from the Mushroom Kingdom, with a new princess to rescue and new abilities for Mario including a coin collecting fire flower power-up, the ability to fly a plane, and control a submarine.

All in all Super Mario Land is a short game with only four worlds and 3 levels each but with great game play, memorable soundtrack and an incredible fun factor associated with it, everyone needs to own a copy.

So what’s a copy of Super Mario Land worth? Well while you can get copies for as low as $2, but most of them will be dirty, have a damaged label, or a cracked case.  A nice, clean, decent copy will run you as much as $10.
