The original Gameboy in all its glory.

The first Gameboy came with relatively simple. It came with a monochrome dot matrix display. A tiny light on the left of the display ensured that you replaced the batteries by lighting up. The Gameboy came when things were simpler.

There were variants that came out over the years though. The Gameboy Color was one of them. Handheld gaming suddenly became much more immersive.

The Gameboy adapted. The last version that came out was the Advance SP (The complete review on the Gameboy Advance SP). It came in two variants, the front-lit and the back-lit screen version. Things are still kept simple though. It is another piece of the 90s in your hands.
