FEATURED Mario Tennis
- Unlock new characters with the N64 Transfer Pak
- Suitable for All Ages
Serve up some action as you take on your favorite classic Nintendo characters in this tennis challenge. There’s never been more realistic tennis action on the Game Boy, as every possible detail is included. You can play in either Singles or Doubles mode, but don’t expect it to be easy; the computer has some pretty good moves for a computer, that is. You can choose from a number of characters initially, and even more become available as you unlock them. You’ll need to achieve certain goals to do so, however, and that’s no small feat. The more experience you gain through winning matches, the more skills and abilities your character will possess as attributes. You can use an N64 Transfer Pack (not included) to move your characters from the Game Buy to the N64, and you can get two-player action going (head-to-head or co-op doubles versus the computer) if you have two Game Boy Color units and a link cable. It might not be Wimbledon, but the again, Wimbledon was never this much fun.Mario Tennis for the Game Boy Color was created by the same team that developed the Nintendo 64 version of the game. Unlike the Nintendo 64 version, though, this match takes place inside a tennis academy. Players create their own characters, and then play matches to gain experience points. These points can be used to increase the abilities of your player or your doubles partner. Inside the academy, you can grab a snack at the café, relax in your dorm room, upgrade your equipment at the repair counter, or even exercise in a workout room. If you’re looking to jump right into the action, the exhibition mode will put you on the court against characters like Mario, Yoshi, and Bowser. If you have the Nintendo 64 version and the Transfer Pak, you can upload your character and watch as he or she transforms from pixels to polygons. With the game link cable, you can connect to a friend’s copy of Mario Tennis for the Game Boy Color and compete head-to-head.
