Product Description

Color: Atomic Purple

With 52 brilliant colors simultaneously displayed on Game Boy Color's small portable screen, your games look better than ever! Full color portable gaming is an awesome advance, but Game Boy Color does more than improve the appearance of your games. Game Boy Color is twice as fast as the regular Game Boy, which allows programmers to crunch more data and produce more sophisticated games. For you, this means faster action, more advanced AI, and increased realism. But you don't have to go out and buy all new games to enjoy playing in color! You can play any of the 450 original Game Boy titles, and Game Boy Color will transform them to color from black and white! When you put a pre-existing Game Boy game into Game Boy Color, you will be able to choose from one of twelve default color palettes on the Game Boy Color start-up screen. New games designed specifically for Game Boy Color are sharper and even more vivid than colorized black and white games, with a full spectrum palette of more than 32, 000 colors. Game Boy Color is compatible with both the Game Boy Camera and the Game Boy Printer.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hey, it's blue! September 8, 2000
By Rene
Color Name:Teal
I bought a Gameboy to entertain my children and me when we are traveling. I'm not sure why reviews of the "dandelion" Gameboy are different from the "teal" Gameboy, but I bought the teal. First, my 7-year-old loves this game! I bought Super Mario Deluxe to go with this and she had never seen it before. I enjoy this game, too. The small size of the Gameboy is amazing. This is the 8-bit gaming that used to require a TV and a large plastic box. Now, the Gameboy Color will easily fit in your pocket. And, the picture quality is comparable to what you used to see on TV. However, it's not all a paradise. In low light conditions, the screen is invisible without a supplemental light. I read about this in other reviews and I bought the worm light to go with it. These work and come in matching colors, but there is a definite drawback. They don't illuminate the whole screen and there is a definite glare on the screen. You must move the Gameboy around to create the best light condition at the spot on the screen you want to see. There are other lights available and I would like to try them to see if there is an improvement in quality. Still, this is a fun game. This console is relatively cheap and very portable. This will be perfect on long, boring plane and car trips. So, I recommend you buy this console. It doesn't come with any games, so be sure to buy a game at the same time. It does come with batteries, though. And, you will need a light to see the screen unless you only want to play outside on sunny days.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good value overall, but expect to squint December 15, 1999
By A Customer
Color Name:Atomic Purple
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I had the original GameBoy when it came out 10 years ago, and I liked it a lot. The new color version is definitely a long-needed upgrade, but unfortunately Nintendo did this one on the cheap and skimped on the most important aspect of the system - the color screen. Not only is the screen tiny, but the colors are rarely as vibrant as they look on the advertisements. The screen can be very difficult to see under most lighting conditions. (I have actually found florescent lighting to be best.) That flaw aside, the games make this system... and there are hundreds of them, and many of them are very good. Even though I practically am blind after playing for more than a few minutes, I use my GameBoy color more than any other game system. It's easy to take with you, and even if you are over 12 (like me) there are games that you will enjoy during the daily bus commute or whatever.

5.0 out of 5 stars You may want to look for a 3rd time... November 5, 2000
By A Customer
Color Name:Atomic Purple
Okay so the Game Boy is based on 10-year old hardware, has tiny sound, no light, blah blah blah.... now just wait a minute! There's a very good reason for all of that. First off, the 10-year old hardware: It works. Just look at how many games there are for this puppy. Plenty to choose from. Now the sound: that will be improved upon on the next rendition named "Game Boy ADVANCE" which will sport Dolby Surround sound (if used in games) and in STEREO BABY! Oh and most peoples biggest gripe is the lack of a backlight for the screen. The reason for this is cuz it sucks too much battery life from the system. Know this: GBA uses 2 AA batteries and lasts for 20 hours. Sega GameGear uses 8 AA batteries and lasted only 6 hours! Remember how big and clunky the Sega GameGear was? Try fitting THAT in your pocket! Oh and what if the light burns out? Might as well buy a new one cuz it's gonna cost just as much as having the light repaired. Just get a cheap NYKO Wormlight. It's well worth the purchase and it works 100% better than those other lame light/magnifiers I've played with. The GAMES make the SYSTEM, and you'll be happy to know that there are TONS of grade A+ games to choose from. You won't be disappointed. Just be sure to read some good reviews of games before you buy them. .... Just be sure to save some cash for Nintendo's next portable, the Game Boy ADVANCE. It will own you.

Color Name:Kiwi
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I am 13 years old and although you may think this is weird, I enjoy pocket video game systems better than other consoles. This may be due to the fact that i spend a lot of time on the road. I have a now-dead Neogeo Pocket Color, and as soon as i found out I wouldn't be able to get any more games for it, I started saving up for a Gameboy Color. When I finally had enough money, I bought a Kiwi Gameboy Color with a Kiwi Wormlight and Warioland 3. I do not regret it! I never thought that this system had good graphics until I actually saw them. They are fantastic! As far as games go, Gameboy Color has enough great games to make up for its duds. I would stick to games such as Metal Gear Solid, Super Mario Bros. DX, Wario Land 3, and Legend of Zelda: Links Awakening DX. Stay away from the games featuring cartoon characters, such as Rugrats and Toy Story. They are mostly the same, been there done that platform games with weak gameplay. Sound is about as good as it can get for a pocket console these days. It doesn't blow you away, but it does the job on most games. The best things about Gameboy Color are that you can take it anywhere and there are games just as good if not better than console games. If I were you, I would get a Gameboy Color instead of any console. They are a lot cheaper, also. You owe it to yourself to buy one!
