The oldest game ever to appear on the original Game Boy, Heiankyo Alien faithfully adapts the classic PC trap-’em-up by the same name as well as introducing a visually overhauled remake with new features and aliens to contend with. Though simple and oddly named, it’s nevertheless a legitimate classic.
