I was thinking about making a list of games that are not on Virtual Boy, but related to the Virtual Boy in some way. Also, the games should be released relatively around the time of the Virtual Boy. This is what I have so far:

Game Boy:
Chalvo 55
Faceball 2000
Wario Land series - RetroDan

SNES:
Waterworld(PAL Exclusive)

N64:
Mario Tennis - RetroDan

PlayStation 1:
Jockey Zero - Benjamin Stevens (Also referenced in this article that "The developers later used some of the game's mechanics in the PS1 game Jockey Zero": https://lostmediawiki.com/Virtual_Jockey_(lost_build_of_unreleased_Virtual_Boy_game;_1996) )

Various systems:
SD Gundam Series, many installments - RetroDan


What else would belong here?

Jockey Zero for Playstation seems to be Right Stuff's commercial release for what was originally going to be Virtual Jockey on Virtual Boy.

Jack Bros is a shin megami tensei title which has been on Nintendo hardware in Japan since the Famicom and has been since though also on Sony and others since too.

Space Invaders in Japan is kind of self explanatory as it has been ported to anything with a chip and display.

Panic Bomber was release on other systems as well (PC Engine, Super Famicom, and a few others).

3-D Tetris is similar to Blockout and Geom Cube.

Good point. I never really bothered with the game on my VB back in the 90s as I had Panic Bomber on J-SCD for the Duo, and most recently until I sold it on a Neo Geo MVS cart. Now I just have the VB release which despite the lack of many colors I find better on this anyway.

And yeah 3D Tetris is like that 3D blockout game from like 30-35 years ago. Even the Tetris company had their own kind of a play on it too Welltris though that fell down the sides and wasn't a 3D floating block to the center. So that one would be like the father in design since the next logical step would not be the wall on a well but 3D blocks within it instead.


Golf on the VB I forgot to note, T&E Soft made it, and that game is just them again re-using their game golf engine that they have used 3x on the SNES (Waialae Golf, Pebble Beach, and Wicked 13 Golf) and also again Waialae Golf for N64 and 2 more only in Japan around Augusta. Each uses the same engine and they're all unofficially as such part of the same series.

And Vertical Force, never really see it come up, but you have to be blind not to notice that it's designed just like the original Star Soldier game also by Hudson. Both vertical shooters, both of them have your fighter play on 2 playing fields high and low, and with kind of similar weaponry and ship designs too for the franchise (of star soldier.)

Game Boy also had a PAL-only Waterworld release, but it's more like the SNES game than the VB game.
