Game Boy Advance


  1. Game Boy Advance

    The Game Boy Advance was a major improvement over the Game Boy Color with a new handheld shape, shoulder buttons and better graphics. It was technically compared to the Super Nintendo console, except that the Game Boy Advance's 16-bit sound is not as powerful as the console's. Some games remade from the Super Nintendo for the Game Boy Advance had to remix their soundtracks so they would work on the handheld system. This is clearly evident in the Donkey Kong Country series. It was also backwards compatible Game Boy and Game Boy Color games, making it the first Nintendo handheld to be backwards compatible with more than one console. (2001)

  2. Game Boy Advance SP

    The Game Boy Advance SP was the first Game Boy to have a clamshell design much like the Nintendo DS. The Game Boy Advance SP featured much better graphics and a front-lit screen which could be turned on or off (the model AGS-001). The newer model, AGS-101 features a backlit screen with adjustable brightness. The system's game compatibility is identical to the Game Boy Advance's. Backwards compatibility with the Game Boy and Game Boy Color continued with the SP. (2003)

  3. Game Boy Micro

    This was the last model in the Game Boy line and was the smallest handheld ever released and was also released after the DS hit stores. It featured a lack of backwards compatibility to play original Game Boy and Game Boy Color games due to design changes, only able to play Game Boy Advance games. The screen was about 2/3 the size of the original Game Boy Advance's. (2005)
