Incredible times, a surprising amount of runners, amazing viewers, somewhat decent commentators: This edition of the Tiny Ten had it all! As the original organiser of this event (it's me: Moelle) I am truly honored how the Portable Marathon evolved into the past 2 years into something not only me, but the other organisers, runners and viewers alike all look forward to with the excitement of a toddler finding a worm in the backyard.

Tuesday, March 7, 2017 - 18:35
With Tiny Ten #5 around the corner, a lot of the old WR's for the games on that list have been constantly being improved upon. Reporting on those currently would be a waste of time. But luckilly there also have been a few very significant new WR's in other Game Boy games as well. So here's a round up on what's been going on with Trax, Kirby's Dream Land and Bubble Ghost.
Johncarls may be an idiot for fogetting to mention this brilliant website yet again, but we'll forgive him... this time! In the latest pocket episode of The Frame Savers, he takes a closer look at the hypest new Game Boy speedrun out there: Avenging Spirit. Get yourself convinced to start speedrunning this brilliant game before the hype train leaves the station.
What better way to start the new year then with some fresh new Game Boy world records! First up we got some sweet speedkicking and speedpunching in Double Dragon. Tired of all this violence in your videogames? We got you covered on par with some relaxing fast paced swinging action in Golf with not one, but two new records!
A lot of research has been going on in the background concerning how SGB Enhanced games perform on different setups. Originally pld already found out that some games seemed to be running slower than normal when using a Super Game Boy 2 (and of course on SGB1 but as that one runs too fast by default we didn't take this further into consideration). Recently Nudua put the problem under the scope and has come up with some very interesting details.

Kirby's Dream Land was the first game on Game Boy I ever bought myself. I was amazed by the graphical style, the cheerful melodies and the simple, yet extraordinary gameplay mechanics. Not only was the Kirby franchise a big stepping stone for all my future gaming explorations, it also inspired me in more artistic ways. When Kirby's Dream Land 2 appeared on the shelves, it was no giving that I would buy it immediately. Years later, when I decided to make a Let's Play for YouTube, KDL2 was an obvious choice as a starting point.
