Meteoid Fusion! One of my all time favorite GBA games!
Tetris, Super Mario Land and my personal favorite, Super RC Pro AM.
Games that are really good, or I've heard are really good:
Kirby. Kirby all day and all the way in.
Are you asking for GameBoy, GameBoy Advance or both?
I'd say all the Metroids ("return of Samus" on game boy, "fusion" and "zero mission" on the gba). The castelvania games are really good too (especially on the GBA). "Zelda link's awakening" (preferably DX) is an absolute must have to me (both my favorite game on the game boy color and my favorite Zelda game). "Mario land 2, the six golden coins". And, often forgotten despite being one of the best games on the console : "donkey Kong" (the gb game from 1994, often referred to as "donkey Kong 94"). Don't be fooled, it's not a simple port from the arcade game.
Agree with Donkey Kong, it's a great game.
golden sun 1
Super Mario Land
That game has aged pretty badly. It's like 20 minutes long, the physics are wonky, and it doesn't leave much of an impression. The 2nd one is miles better.
super mario land 2, kirbys dreamland, tetris. zelda links awakening
Pokemon pinball, pinball of the dead, advance wars
Minish cap and sword of mana
Donkey Kong '94 is a great puzzle game and not what I expected.
Gba: astroboy omega factor, castlevania series, advance wars, super mario advance series, zelda series, metroid series
Wario ware inc mega micro minigames is one of my favorites but it's really silly. Gba has lots of fun platformers: kirby, wario, klonoa, drill dozer, Yoshis island. Games loved by everybody are Metroid and castlevania games, i consider them must haves for the system. Other action based games that are also good: Astro boy, dragonball advanced adventure, mega man.
Megaman battle network
I agree with a lot that have already been posted, along with Gargoyle's Quest - Ghosts'n Goblins and Donkey Kong Land.
Fire emblem sacred stones, shining soul 1/2, Metroid fusion, harvest moon fomt
The original Tetris for Game Boy.
Super Hunchback is a great GB game, often overlooked.
