Designed to look and play like the N64 version of this title, Mario Tennis for the Game Boy Color features several familiar Nintendo characters in a fairly realistic tennis simulation. Some characters are available for play initially and many others are unlocked as the player achieves various goals. The player's character gains experience as he or she wins competitions and can use this to improve different tennis skills and abilities. The N64 Transfer Pack allows developed characters to be transferred from the Game Boy Color cartridge to the console and a link cable allows two handheld gamers to go head-to-head or compete together against a computer-controlled doubles team.
