Baseball Stars Color – SNK (1995)

Portable systems are ideal for two genres of games, role playing and Sports.  Nothing passes the time faster on a long car trip than a great RPG.  But what if you have shorter trips?  When nothing beat a sports game.  Not all sports games excel on a little portable but golf and baseball do.

This game reminds me more of an 8-bit Nintendo baseball game then a modern portable one.  While at bat you have minimal movement and you just swing to hit the ball, no adjusting the bat to hit the ball like in Baseball Advance on the GBA.  Pitching gives you the standard “press down for a fast ball, up for a slow ball etc” options.   A really basic game but those can be fun of course.  Fielding is totally automatic, all you have to do is make sure you throw to the correct base.
