What Is It? When all of the hens and eggs are kidnapped, Toki Tori is forced to go on an amazing quest rescue his friends and family. This is the set-up for one of the most inventive puzzlers on the Game Boy Color. And not only is this an addictive time-waster, but it's also an incredible showpiece for what the Game Boy Color was capable of.

Toki Tori must travel from level to level picking up all of the stranded eggs. To do this he'll need to dodge enemies, build bridges, climb ladders and use items to successfully navigate the increasingly complicated levels. And you can't just sit around waiting for the puzzle to solve itself, because Toki Tori is given only a few minutes to complete each level. The end result is a captivating puzzle game that is impossible to put down.

Does It Still Hold Up? Without question, this is one of the best Game Boy Color games I've seen. Even with the limited palette, the colors stand out and it's easy to see what everything is supposed to be. The gameplay is also good, even though I wish our hero could jump a little higher and farther. This is an endearing quest full of memorable character; it's hard to believe that it's an 8-bit title.

Is It Worth The Money? I've always been a fan of this style of puzzle game. Don't worry about quick reflexes and making lucky jumps, because this is a thinking man's platformer. You spend most of your time laying down items and deciding which order to pick up the unhatched chicks. Levels can last anywhere from a few seconds to a few minutes, making this the perfect portable game. The core mechanics are ageless and it's one of the best Game Boy Color games on the Virtual Console. Toki Tori is a must-buy!
