Like I mistakingly posted in the GB/color topic: I vote for:
  • Bruce Lee - Return of the legend
  • Prince of Persia - The sands of time
  • Mario Kart (the SNES version don't work due to mode7 incapabilities)
  • Super Star Wars - Return of the Jedi
I play those the most. And I use the GBA calculator in the native OS. :)

Hmm, have been getting *back* into GBA lately, playing the games through my EZFlash 3in1..

A couple that I love

- Konami Krazy Racers
- Mario Kart Super Circuit
- The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap
- Mother 3 (though this apparently doesn't play well on the native Dingoo GBA emulator, because of the frameskip and rhythm battles)

Working the rhythm battles adds almost nothing to the game and most GBA emulators have some issue with it. The game is still perfectly enjoyable without them. blizz, please unstrike it from the list.

Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow
Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance
Castlevania: Circle of the Moon
Mother 3
Metroid: Zero Mission

Feel free to add games to your list. But make sure that you don't edit your post (I won't notice that) but make a new reply.

I would really recommend the bit-generations series. They are all quite nice, but in particular I would recommend:

Digidrive
Orbital
& Dot stream

All have a lovely minimalist design and are perfect for "on the go" gaming experiences.

I have a good collection of import GBA titles, and would recommend:

Koro Koro Puzzle - Happy Panech! (a puzzle game with built-in tilt control {though, I wonder if this one would be dingoo compatible??})

Black mustache golf (Kurohige no Golf Shiyouyo) (a beautiful ploygon-rendered golf game).

& Domokun's Mysterious television (Domo-Kun no Fushigi Terebi) (mini-games galore! most playable without any japanese language knowledge)
