The transparent purple Game Boy Color.

Game Boy Color is a portable handheld video game console created by Nintendo and released in Japan, the USA, and Europe in 1998. In addition to being backward compatible with all original Game Boy games, it gave the developers of new games access to limited color.

I have never played a Game Boy Color in real life, but I have played several games using emulators.

Status

I do not own, nor have I ever owned, a Game Boy Color, but I have played dozens of games for it.

Games

See all Game Boy Color Games.

These are the Game Boy Color games that are important to me:

Review

Good

  • The addition of color, though severely limited, was a step in the right direction.
  • Being backward compatible with the entire Game Boy library was very nice.
  • Having a built-in color palette index for original Game Boy games was a great way to add more life to older games.
  • The multitude of color cases was a nice addition.

Bad

  • As a platform, there just weren't that many good games released for it.
  • The majority of the platform's most popular titles are just remakes of existing Game Boy or NES games.
  • Despite being released a full decade after the original Game Boy, the system didn't see much in the way of innovation.

Ugly

  • Nothing.
