Ropobon Sun: My Favorite Weird Game Boy Color Game

So what is Ropobon? Well it’s basically Pokemon replaced with robots. This game also had a really big cartridge that I distinctly remember sticking out of the Game Boy Color and it really stuck out when I got the Game Boy Advance. As for how I got this game? I honestly don’t remember. It’s possible I may have picked it out, or my parents got it for me.

Plot

Pretty much just like Pokemon. You get a Robopon named Sunny from your grandfather and you are supposed to collect Robopon to fight the Legend 7. The only difference is you also inherit your grandfather’s business.

Robopon

Basically Pokemon that are robots. Sunny looks very similar to Pikachu. You find them in the wild like Pokemon and they have different types like Pokemon. The main difference is that you use computer parts to heal them or upgrade them.

Music

This is my favorite part and why I loved the game. My favorite is the main theme that plays when you boot up the game. It would always make me smile as a kid and that’s why I loved playing it so much!

How far did I get?

Just like the Pokemon games, I struggled to get very far in the game as a kid. I remember something about getting stuck in a cave level that was not too far into the game. So I never got to take on the Legend 7 or finish the game.

Would I recommend it?

Hard to say as I am relying only on my memory of playing it when I was very young. I do remember thinking the music was unique. I also did like some of the Robopon like Sunny. I think I would recommend it if you really want to play a game like Pokemon. As for the versions, Sun is the only one that was released in the U.S. which is why I have that version. It’s also the one with Sunny on the cover of it which is why I loved the art on the cartridge!

Have you ever played Robopon?
