These Game Boy clones come with some substantial improvements over Nintendo’s original handhelds! Subscribe to The Gamer:

Nintendo consoles regularly kill it- but there HAVE been a few missteps. Virtual Boy, anyone? But when they released the Game Boy there was tons of hype. Somehow, someway, even though the hardware was lacking in all the wrong places, The Nintendo Game Boy won the battle of on the go gamers based mainly on the sheer power of the games themselves. Quality games can get you over the hump! So that’s why when we go back and want to play those games, advances in technology have brought Game Boy into a better place. By using “clones” of Game Boys (essentially modded Game Boy hardware) gamers have been able to improve the experience by a LOT. Today we’re going to look at these game boy clones and game boy advance clones: GB Boy Color, the Super Retro Boy, Exeq GameBox, Woodi GBA, and the Revo K101 Plus.

What do you think? Did we miss any clones of Nintendo’s Game Boy and Game Boy Advance? Can you think of any other game boy mods?

  1. who had a gameboy that was broken by being thrown

  2. I had a Gameboy Advance but I lost it during moving day 2012😓😓😢😢😭😭😭

  3. My best gaming experience is using the gamepad on my phone that I got today (sadly it broke :(!! )

  4. The FIRST comment oh and EPIC a n d on Xbox one s

  5. Again only 3 minutes long wtf whenever it’s this guy the videos are so short but when the other guy does the videos they are 10 minutes long. I like this guy but I just want the videos to be a little longer.

  6. Just use an emulator download one onto your phone or computer

  7. What's my favorite gaming experience ever? Hitting the square button 50x in sonic unleashed ps3 final boss super sonic vs perfect dark gia

  8. I wish I could of had a try of one but ii don't know if I could..??

  9. Wow. You say the 5 GB Clones are better then the original. Except no. Only ONE (That being the GB Colour) is actually worth it, and that's still overshadowed by the GBA SP.
    Also (in case you didn't know) FAMICLONE CONSOLES. ALWAYS. LIE. At the most, there are going to be 30 of those 999 games that are unique. The other 969+ are just shovelware, terrible copies of existing games, or just one of the other games repeated.

  10. No joke I swear I was playing my game boy colour when I got this notification

  11. For the price (~$35 on ebay) the GB Boy Colour is legit. The screen aspect ratio is slightly off (4:3 instead of the original 10:9) so there's a little bit of scaling, but the screen is a bright modern LCD, which is night-and-day better than a GBC. Buttons feel more "clicky" than an original, and you may actually prefer that, but the buttons also squeak (which may bother people around you, even if you have the volume down). It can play all GB and GBC cartridges no problem. The built-in games are all original GB games (colorized exactly as they would be on a normal GBC). The IR port doesn't work, but the link cable port absolutely does, even with the built-in games. So buy two and a cable for some instant 2-player Tetris action.

    Creation of the Super Retro Boy has been "indefinitely put on hold" as of Jan 2018, so I don't see the point of mentioning it as an option.

    The Revo 101k Plus looks and feels very nice for it's price, but the experience isn't perfect. The buttons feel nice, but the extra X/Y buttons can only be mapped to other buttons, so it's not as useful. The screen has a higher resolution than a GBA, but you have choices on how to display the games – centered in the middle, scaled and blurry, etc. It can play original GBA carts, and it can connect to your TV, which is nice. It cannot play GB/GBC carts. The included k-cart lets you play GBA roms, but some don't work right (like Super Mario World missing background layers). Technically it can play other systems through emulation, that is, through the couple emulators written to run on the GBA. The GB / GBC / Game Gear emulators work the best, but the others resize the games to fit on a GBA screen, even though the screen is more than big enough. So you end up with an even a smaller screen, or a screen that has been shrunk and then stretched, making it look awful. Not to mention that you'll have multiple different menu systems to contend with – the built-in menus plus whatever menus the emulators have, all with different options and different ways of launching them, and usually each game gets it's own settings. The point is, it's a bit of a PITA to just pick up and play, as I find no one set of settings works decent for every game, so you'll be wasting time changing resolutions just to read in-game text.

    My recommendation is, if you just want GB/GBC games, pick up a GB Boy Colour. If you have carts, great, if you don't, there's plenty on there to keep you busy until you decide what to get. If you want GBA games, get a GBA SP or a wide GBA modded with a backlit screen.
