If you read through my Impulsive Buying post you already know what a GB Boy Colour is. But if you don’t know I’ll describe it again. A GB Boy Colour is a knock-off GameBoy Color with a backlit screen and has the ability to play original GameBoy and Gameboy Color cartridges. Also, when you turn it on with no cartridge you are able to play the 66 built-in games it provides. And it has some surprisingly good games like Contra, Super Mario Land and DuckTales.
But, is it worth it? Did it live up to my expectations or was it a mistake to get? Before answering this I have to say that my expectations were very high. I saw a decent amount of reviews on Youtube beforehand and they all praised it a lot. Hence another reason to get one. Also, I’d like to point out some good and bad points that this handheld has to help you understand my conclusion.
1. THE PLASTIC
2. THE SOUND
3. NO INFRARED
4. GRAPHICAL GLITCHES
This seems to only happen with some games, specifically Disney games. When you boot one up you can see some graphical glitches. The game is still playable but it’s kind of annoying!
