While riding the friendly skies with Singapore Airlines, one of the crew over at Siliconera found themselves in for a treat. Well, kind of. See, the airline offers emulated Game Boy Color games for use during your flight, to help you stab that foul beast called boredom
directly in its disgusting, black heart. While a nice gesture, it turns out the emulation software has some issues.
First of all, there are only two categories of play: Pokemon
. Also, the titles under the Adventure
category suffer from choppy frame rates and overall sluggish play. As far as the Pokemon
games go, there is no save feature, hardly making an effort to actually progress in the game a meaningless one.
Other flights, however, featured different titles. Some flights featured The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages
and Wario Land 3
. Others even had Picross 2
. All in all, seems like a good idea executed somewhat poorly.
