About the Game Boy Console


The Game Boy is a handheld video game system that boasted 8-bit graphics when it was originally released in 1989. The favored system of Nintendo, which was experiencing a boom at that point, it quickly reached the United States, and then Europe. The Game Boy was the first hand-held system of the Game Boy name by the Nintendo company; representing the starting point for hand-held systems that would last into the present day. The system was developed under the leadership of Gunpei Yokoi, who had experienced moderate success on several other projects for the NES. Originally the system was considered a successor to the Game & Watch series of systems, but the Game Boy line took off in a way that nobody imagined; later being refined into the Game Boy Pocket and Game Boy Colour.

One of the first games that were bundled with the Game Boy was the infamous “Tetris”, but fans of the system quickly outgrew the game. Mario games on the Game boy took up the mantle of the most popular games with such titles as “Dr. Mario” and “Super Mario Land”. Other Mario games on the Game Boy were quickly made to satisfy fans, resulting in a wondrous variety of cameos and spinoffs on titles such as “Yoshi” and “Alleyway”.

The competition that the Game Boy faced was still stiff, as they had to compete with the Game Gear by Sega and the Atari Lynx. While they had better graphics and components, there was no wayThe original Game Boy console to compete with the titles that were released by Nintendo. The Mario games on the Game Boy alone made it tough to compete with, and with the advent of the Game Boy Colour, there was no stopping this system and its 118 million sales around the globe to date.
