Handheld adaptations of non-handheld games

I've never been much of a handheld guy apart from playing mobile games while I take a shit.

I've recently though branched out into GBA, GB and PSP emulation on my said same mobile (also, often while I take a shit) and am very interested to find the amount of adaptations of full 3D games into 2D, side on or isometric format (picrel being one).

What are some good and terrible ones to further entertain me during my bouts of IBS?

    Crash Bandicoot had decent platformers on GBA which felt more like proper follow ups to the PS1 stuff than anything that came out later on home consoles at the time, they're genuinely excellent.

    I just wish Coco was playable, she was always the best girl... all jokes aside, I had few issues with my playthrough of these, and even did all time trials, which I never bother doing in Crash, it's just fun.

      On the list to try. I've recently been Crash a playthrough on PSX, so this probably would work well.

      I was going to make a thread like after playing GTA Chinatown Wars lately. Cool.

      I actually tried Huge Adventure a few weeks ago and was pleasantly surprised by it. I ultimately dropped it because some of the hit detection was just terrible and I didn't think it was worth suffering through. It would have been a more than acceptable experience had I played it back then, though.

    gbc is my favorite when it comes to demakes. just play original gex games and then try gbc demakes. it's so adorable how hard they tried to recreate landmarks from original game in 8-bit style. you dont see this today.

      Been playing Doom - that's pretty much just a port, though it's a decent port for the GBA.

      Duke is a proper demake - although it's more harking back to his origins as a 2D platformer.

      I don't understand why the GBA Wolf3D port didn't have any music. It's such a basic game that it's boring as shit without it.

      There are only 9 games in the GBA library that are rated M, Wolfenstein 3D and Max Payne are two of them.

      Wolfenstein got it for the nazi iconography and Max Payne got it for blood/shooting/drugs/etc.

    Your pic related seems pretty based Max Payne 1 demake. They had to cut away a couple levels probably because of capacity issues but all the levels included clearly look like the ones in original game and they even included pretty quality graphic novels with sound.

      I've been enjoying it so far, it obviously plays totally differently to the main game, but is enjoyable as a top down shooter with some slight elements of tactical thinking that make Max Payne interesting.

    I loved the Spider-Man titles on PS1, especially the 1st one by Neversoft, but Vicarious Visions' sequel wasn't bad, just not as good. Anyways, it was one of my favorite takes on the character at that time and I really wanted a Spider-Man 3... it never happened, or at least that's what I though, but then I realized that not only did those titles get a GBC series, but also a sequel on GBA too!

    Spider-Man on GBC isn't as good as Neversoft's original, but feels more moody and atmospheric, and goes for a MetroidVania style which I think works well, its sequel was also excellent to play.

    Now, Spider-Man: Mysterio's Menace on GBA... it feels like the Spider-Man 3 I wanted so badly at that time, and to me it's the greatest 2D Spider-Man video game, I can't recommend it enough.

      Well there is GTA Advance, Crash GBA Racing which fits on what you're asking.
      I've never understood why ports like Max Payne or Tony Hawk were made though. Who even played those stuff?

        The Max Payne one is actually pretty good. I played it because I like Max Payne a lot.

        GBA is the first way I experienced THPS, and in fact the first GBA game I owned. it was actually quite awesome in 2001, they did an amazing job of porting it.

    One of the best Tomb Raider games is on the GBC. Plays like Prince of Persia to a degree.

      >2000 frames of animation
      Why do I have a feeling it's closer to a few hundred? It is a really well-animated sprite but 2000 frames? That's what you'd find in games like Melty Blood

    Retains some elements of the PSX game, while being an original title. It's a good game. But the best part for me were the VR missions. VR Missions on the GBC work really well.
