Lot less laggy than the PC version.
One of my favorite pieces of Nintendo history is the Gulf War Game Boy. It’s pretty well-known among Nintendo fans but hey! It might be news to you!
After a bombing during the Gulf War, the Game Boy’s owner found it almost completely charred and melted in the wreckage of the blast and sent it back to Nintendo. A Nintendo staff member decided to try to plug it in for the heck of it, and it powered on! Once the screen was replaced it worked like a charm.
The Gulf War Game Boy is a testament to the sturdy design and enduring nature of Nintendo’s handhelds, and it’s pretty amazing to see in action. It’s on display at the Nintendo World Store in NYC, where it spends its retirement playing an endless demo of the original Tetris, adored (but not played on) by all who visit the store. Good job lil buddy, you earned it
An English version of Pokémon Green does not exist so that game is a bootleg, bought by the artist for the purpose of completing this work of art.
I need this in my life
It would be fine to download on your phone but you want to make sure when downloading the app you use gearboy, the date in your phone has to be before 2010 to download the app and then after downloading you can change the date back. This is because of how the App Store was created before then.
