  1. Game Boy

    The Game Boy was the first portable, interchangeable cartridge handheld by Nintendo. Games were 8-bit black-and-white, played on a green-tinted screen. The system had a red LED which showed the remaining power. It could last for over 30 hours on its required 4 AA batteries. (1989)

  2. Game Boy Pocket

    Similar to the Game Boy but slimmer with a monochrome screen rather than the original pea soup screen. It takes 2 AAA batteries and lasts for a little less time. The first releases of the Game Boy Pocket did not come with the red LED, as shown in the photo. Due to high demand, Nintendo added the LED to the system. (1996)

  4. Game Boy Color

    Similar to the Game Boy, but with color graphics. It also had many technical enhancements, including a more powerful processor and an infrared wireless link-up port. This system was technically compared to the NES, except that the Game Boy Color has a larger color palette. There is no backlight on the screen. It was also backwards compatible with Game Boy games. (1998)
