The Game Boy might be more than 30 years old at this point, but Nintendo's sturdy brick of wonder is enjoying something of a resurgence just lately.
We've seen several studios try their luck with new releases for the system over the past year or so –Infinity, Tales of Monsterland, The Year After, and GBA's Goodboy Galaxy all spring to mind – and this latest effort from Bitmap Soft continues the trend.
Pineapple Kid, which was developed by two brothers, is a puzzle game featuring maze-like levels to explore. You'll need to collect keys to advance through its 70 levels, aiming to earn the highest score possible as you go. It even has a story attached:
The game tells the story of Pineapple Kid, a courageous pineapple that lives in a distant land where pineapples live a happy life. The pineapples always dreamt of having a happier life in a place called Pineapple Paradise. The legendary Tower that can grant the passage to Pineapple Paradise is rumored to appear once in a 100 years but no one dared to challenge the Tower, and so the legend became only a tale. Until one day, Pineapple Kid stood up and made a journey to the Tower. This time the player (You!) can help out Pineapple Kid reach Pineapple Paradise!
