This is an interesting curio - Nail 'n Scale from Japanese developer I'Max, and published by Data East.  Originally released in 1990 in Japan as Dragon Tail, this unique puzzle platformer didn't make its way to Western shores for nearly a year and a half.  By the time the game was released in 1992, most developers had begun to really take advantage of the Game Boy's hardware capabilities.  Nail 'n Scale, however, still looks and plays like an early Game Boy title.  Does this ruin the game's chances of standing up against some of its then peers?  Watch the review, and decide for yourself!
