(Game Boy version) is a video game originally released by Rare
for the Game Boy
handheld game console from Nintendo
Despite having the same box art and title as the NES release
for Game Boy is a completely different game with new levels.
A modified version of the original NES game was later released on the Game Boy as Battletoads in Ragnarok's World. This version of the game has fewer levels in it and is only single player.
Essentially the player takes on nearly the exact same type of side scrolling action found in the NES
version, with similar but simplified graphics and enemies. It is only a single player game and starts out in a level similar to the NES version as well. The task is also similar, with the toad Zitz having to rescue both of his partners, Rash and Pimple.
However, there are plenty of differences in the levels and range in difficulty when encountering enemies or obstacles. The same "over-the-top" finishing combos can also be found in the Game Boy release.
As in the case of the NES version of Battletoads, the Game Boy version is also notoriously difficult to beat, requiring fast reflexes, memorization of obstacles, and patience.
