Game Boy + Color = Success!

ChocoDope, Viewpoints
9 September 2012
  • Excerpt: The Game Boy was a huge success, so Nintendo had a real tough time to make a successful sequel to it. The idea is a Game Boy with color and the addition of a LED communicator. The idea is a huge success and sells a huge amount of systems. Nintendo also implemented for the first time backwards compatibility with previous Game Boy titles. All previous Game Boy titles released were instantly playable and all previous features were back.

Although it is outdated today, it provided modern entertainment at is dawn with better graphics than the original game boy and the different desgins of colors and product advertisement for Pokemon provided personalization for everyone's need.

Shut up your kids with little cash: get em this!

  • Excerpt: In 1998 they finally released the revolutionary Gameboy Color to the market. Instead of the usual blurry black and white screen bullcrap we had to put up with all these years we now get to see several new Gameboy Color games in (get this) full colour! Is this worth picking up though especially in this day and age? The Gameboy Colour itself is just that; it's a old fashion Gameboy with the ability to play certain games in colour.

  • Excerpt: I always enjoyed playing Nintendo Gameboy Color which is a lot of fun to play. Batteries last a good long while as while they last 6-7 hours straight. Games are simple not overtly complex. It is fun for long trips it really keeps you occupied. YOu will never get bored. I really enjoy playing The Legend Of Zelda game on game boy color it is really alot of fun to play with I never get bored playing that game.

What a great tool to aid in your child's learning to read!

  • Excerpt: If your child is learning to read and is into technology, this is a great tool! Get a game with dialogue between the characters-- they'll be forced to try to figure out the conversations-- hopefully, with you nearby to help but not close enough for you to be doing all the reading.  My son was into Pokemon when it first took the USA by storm-- he was a 1st grader and wanted to play the Pokemon GameBoy game.

Not just for kids

  • Excerpt: Good for all ages. For older people looking to keep their minds active, this is a fun alternative to puzzle books & reading. They can be found for reasonable prices, with a variety of games to choose from. Easy to keep in a pocket or purse. Downside is small graphics for those with poor vision, & need light to play, but magnifiers & lights can be found on the secondary markets. Recommend!!!

  • Excerpt: I bought my two girls Game Boys about 3 years ago. One got a purple one and the other got a teal looking one. They are both Game Boy Color and they absolutely loved them!! Now that they have the new Ninetendo DS Lite they have long forgotten about the trusty Game Boy. They only had a few games a mario game and something generic I cant remember but they played very well never any problems with it.

  • Summary: Overall is a very good product. The battery like is excellent and the game section is good. I love TETRIS and can play it for hours on end. Love to take it on flights, make the time pass very quick. The size is ideal for putting in pocket and just being on the go.
  • Pros: color is a little bad a times. need to turn on angle to see the screen properly
  • Cons: color is a little bad a times. need to turn on angle to see the screen properly

Still a good choice for first time gamers.

  • Excerpt: The Gameboy Color hand-held unit is outdated. There have been several models released since the original portable video game player. You would think that the * Gameboy Color * would not be a popular toy anymore. Gameboy Color , however, is still a bit hit. It is less expensive than the newer, more advanced systems. * Gameboy Color * is popular among beginning players. The button functions are easy to figure outand the games are fairly simple to play.

The Best

rdumpemail, Viewpoints
22 November 2001
  • Excerpt: The Nintendo Game Boy Color is probably my favorite of all of the handheld gaming systems that exist to this day. And it also may have taken more enjoyable hours out of my entire life than my xbox 360. The Nintendo Game Boy Color comes in a beautiful pallet of solid colors and a nice screen to look at (without a backlight which most handhelds have these days that can damage one's eyes). It only takes two double A batteries and the Game Boy Color is ready to go.
