From Below Pocket

From Below Pocket

From Below is an original game developed by Matt Hughson, originally launched as a homebrew project for the NES. It is a new take on a familiar puzzle title we all know and love.

And Matt Hughson has spent the past couple of years porting his game to handheld form for those of us who prefer our games on the go.

From Below Pocket offers Tetris-like block puzzle game play, where you are also being slowly attacked from the bottom of the board by a mischievous sea monster.

The quicker you can clear lines, the quicker you’ll send the nasty Kraken back to the depths and away from your precious castle.

From Below Pocket

You can enjoy this puzzle title for hours upon hours with several unique game modes. Play solo or against friends in two-player battles via the Game Boy’s Game Link Cable.

The game is compatible with the original monochrome Game Boy, Game Boy Color, and the Super Game Boy for the SNES.
