Mega Man V
- Platform - The only Game Boy Mega Man title that doesn't feature re-used bosses from the NES games, Mega Man V is its own game, and introduces Mega Man's robotic cat, Tango, the Stardroids (a group of robots named after the planets - except for Earth who had his name changed to the much cooler Terra in the English release), and an ancient robot unearthed by Dr. Wily, who's known as Sunstar (or the more nifty Sun God, in the Japanese version of the game). You also get to re-fight the "Mega Man Killers" group, each of whom appeared one-by-one in the four other Game Boy Mega Man games - Enker, Quint, Punk, and Ballade. This game has a lot of bosses! Charging your shots in this one results in Mega Man's whole arm being fired off at opponents, which is a bit of a change from the usual charged shots.

.Donkey Kong Land
- Platform - A companion game to Donkey Kong Country on the SNES, and in my view the only one of the Donkey Kong Land games that's worth the time, because it's its own unique title and it isn't trying to be a miniaturised copy of the SNES games (which is what the other two Donkey Kong Land titles tried to do). It may not look like much nowadays, but its graphics and animation looked very fluid on the screen of a real Game Boy or Game Boy Pocket. Regardless of this aspect now showing its age, it's still a very solid platformer with a great soundtrack (most of which is all its own, though much of it came to later be reused in the terrible Game Boy Colour port of Donkey Kong Country), and some pretty cool bosses.
I would recommend Metroid II - Return of Samus
as well, but I can't write a huge amount about it because I haven't had the time to play very much of it yet - it's one of those games I bought with the intent of playing it on my Pandora.
EDIT: @Tickles - Gremlins 2: The New Batch was fantastic! Great recommendation!
