Default Gameboy Styled Games

Greetings,

I would like to discover more iOS games inspired by or designed to emulate the old Gameboy titles. The following are some that I am aware of. Please let me know if you are aware of any others that are decent. Just to be clear, I am looking for amber or grayscale pixel art games only, not retro games in general. (1-Bit Ninja appears as an exception because it has very clear Gameboy influence despite the use of color) Thanks!

Impulse by Matthias Falk Thread

Tower of Fortune by Game Stew Review


War of Eclipse by Game Stew Thread

I was really looking forward to Evil Robot and Pixelmania, but it appears that they have been pulled from the AppStore.

Sorry, I gotta bust out the appinfo since I'm not sure how to insert images (that aren't hotlinked and destined to vanish).

I absolutely love the color version of this. I thought about listing the original but it is straight black-and-white - but I suppose it deserves an honorable mention.

Agreed. I was trying to remember the name of this one.

That's because Pixelmania's been pulled and the Evil Robot you tried to get has also been pulled. It was just re-released under a different account.
