Gremlins 2 & Pocket Stadium retrospective: The Gizmo grinder | Game Boy Works 127

Watch on Youtube

Youtube Video Description:

Sunsoft returns to Game Boy with a soul-crushingly brutal take on a movie that's about as close to being a cult classic as a major blockbuster can be: Gremlins 2 - The New Batch. It really captures the experience of being a small, helpless little fuzzy guy with stubby arms making his way through a skyscraper filled with raving murder-monsters. Although you'd think with Gizmo's gigantic eyes, he'd have better vision than the original Game Boy screen provides. On the import tip, there's Pocket Stadium from Atlus, a curious baseball simulator... and by "simulator" I really do mean that it's a simulator. No timing or dexterity required! Video Works is funded via Patreon ( — support the show and get access to every episode up to two weeks in advance of its YouTube debut! Plus, exclusive podcasts, eBooks, and more! Books coming soon. Production notes: • Game Boy footage captured from original carts on a Super Game Boy 2 and @Analogue Super Nt. • Live footage captured through same process, but with a Game Boy Camera. • Footage output as RGB via @Analogue DAC and upscaled via @Retro Tink 5X (hence the visual glitching and artifacts that shows up in some footage).
