The US saw a total of 16 officially released Gameboy Color games with the Rumble Pak built directly into the cartridge. Powered by a single triple A battery and outfitted with a larger shell, these carts are undoubtedly unique for a handheld that saw over one thousand games released.
In 2012, I wrote an article about Nintendo Gameboy Color Rumble Pak carts but this article has much more detail.
In the video below, each GBC Rumble Pak game will be featured, highlighting how the rumble option works specifically within that game’s gameplay. I will also showcase the Rumble Pak games that were never released outside of Japan. Be sure to watch until the end because I found some interesting rumble-based facts in doing this rumble research as well as talk about games that could have possibly benefitted from incorporating a force feedback option.
