Bought a stack of mostly mediocre games for 50€,

Including Felix The Cat and Mario 6 Golden Coins
Considering I should be able to sell Felix for about 40€/35€ I think it was a good deal.

Felix The Cat is a really easy game. I finished it in one sitting while working lmao. Its cool because you constantly collect Felix heads, and you keep turning into a different vehicle. Like you'll start on foot, your attack is a boxing glove. Then you turn into a dancing Felix, a car and then a tank lmao.

For the flying levels you have a balloon, and an attack fighter
For the underwater level you have a dolphin you swim on, and a submarine.

It really wasnt all that hard though. Like I said I finished it in one sitting, probably under an hour 😅🤷🏼‍♂️

I also have Prince of Persia on GB now, I tried it but got to the guy with the sword, and I didnt have any so I died lol

Didn't know they made a GB version of Felix... I played through the NES version last year and it seems the GB is a much more trimmed down version (with a fewer levels) than the NES one. But the concepts are there - upgrading to different forms (like the tank) and riding the  :-X dolphin :-X

Depends on what people offer.

A pristine version of Links Awakening GB goes for 200 Euro easily. That booklet looks pretty beat up and probably decreases the value. Overall it's an expensive item especially if it still works.
Minish Cap is quite expensive and rare too depending on the condition. The box looks a bit beat up but not too bad. Boxed should be worth something between 100 - 150 Euro at a minimum I think.
Although I have seen those being sold for less but also empty boxes for more.  :doge

Not sure how I feel about selling at this time. Value could still increase or demand could dry up.

Originally developed by Affinix Software from 1999 to 2001 towards the end of the Game Boy Color’s retail lifespan, the shift in the market towards the Game Boy Advance (released in 2001) resulted in publishing struggles for the game. As a result, the original Affinix team went their separate ways, leaving Infinity a what-if that was formally cancelled in 2002. Yet, 15 years later, following repeated interest in what was seen as one of the last Game Boy Color games, an unfinished version of Infnity was released as a free ROM in 2016.

Now, for the 20th anniversary of Infinity, we have assembled a team consisting of both Affinix originals and fresh faces to finally complete Infinity and give it the physical cartridge release for the Game Boy Color that it always deserved! If you are interested in helping to finally make Infinity a reality, please subscribe to our newsletter to receive updates and exclusive news concerning our upcoming summer kickstarter campaign, and to get an exclusive medley of Infinity’s soundtrack!

Looks amazing.

Recently got a great deal on a mint condition, cib Rolan's Curse... I played through the second a few weeks ago so it'll be cool to go for the first.

Has anyone ever played Knight Quest? One of the most obscure English-released RPGs I can think of. I remember having it as a little kid, it's got 1v1 turn based battles and is rather simplistic... I've never heard anyone talk about it.

Never heard of those games, they look interesting though.  :-*

Don't really expect too much out of Rolan's Curse, it's like a slower moving, much more linear and less puzzly take on Zelda, with a cool character-changing feature (different characters have different attacks/magic). Still enjoyable enough.
