I've always wanted to play it, but I heard it's really hard. Like, even the watch in the bottom right-hand corner matters, as apparently you need to do certain actions at the specific time.

I'll post a new game tomorrow. :)

I'm pretty sure that's from Jones in the Fast Lane. I used to love that game!

Correct!

I used to love that game!

Same here. I remember that back then the title was a real mystery to me and my friends, so we would simply call it "A Game of Life".

Haha, I'm pretty sure I didn't know what the title meant either.

Yes, it's Commander Keen 4: Secret of the Oracle, showing the mooning easter egg in the Pyramid of the Moons! ;)

Is that a GameBoy game? Or is it from the thingy arj0n is currently making a port from (https://www.adventuregamestudio.co.uk/forums/index.php?topic=58935.0)?

Oh yeah they do look similar. Not arj0n’s project ~ this is indeed a GameBoy title.

It's obviously "Game Boy", it's even written on the side. It was a lot of fun: it featured a boy in a game.

Well... I just cheated and looked at the release list of gameboy games and searched for "SNK".
Turned out they only published one game on that system(according to that list) and that's it, so I'll skip this.

Perhaps the game that killed SNK? Must not have been very popular, so I'll just throw in the towel.

The game is called Dexterity. Quirky, but the mechanics of the game were solid and offered a lot of variation that kept each round fresh. Here's a playthrough:
