Godzilla (Game Boy)
Also known as: Gojira-Kun: Kaijū Daikōshin (JP)
Godzilla, the puzzle-platformer, and a follow-up to the 1985 Japan-only MSX game. Well, people seemed to like it, so... In this game, Gojira-kun/Godzilla's son Minilla (In the US ver)/girlfriend Bijira (In the JPN ver) is captured by the other Kaiju, and it's up to Gojira/Godzilla to save him/her by travelling through a maze.

The Japanese title screen features a very cute and cartoony rendition of the iconic Daikaiju, whereas the US/European version opts for a much more realistic version. The music used during the title screen in the Japanese version is also used for the monster roll-call in the US/European version, with the US/European version using an original composition for the title screen itself.
The monsters in the US/European version move exactly as they do in the original Godzilla-kun. The Japanese version, on the other hand, makes some changes to the monsters' behaviors:
- The whole game is faster compared to the US version.
- Baragon sometimes pauses to yawn in place.
- MechaGodzilla now doesn't move unless Godzilla is moving, and he usually prefers to do his own thing as opposed to chasing Godzilla.
- Rodan no longer homes in directly on Godzilla; instead he usually flies above Godzilla waiting to ambush him with a dive attack.
- Hedorah stops moving at random intervals, and when punched he melts into a puddle and cannot damage Godzilla, as opposed to being knocked back with no visible injuries.
- A powerup that allowed Godzilla to use his Atomic Breath was removed in the US version.
