Nintendo Gives The Gameboy a Rainbow of Colour
Enhancing gamers original experience with the Nintendo Gameboy gaming system which was a 2-bit colour Palette which included four shades of grey that appeared more liek a light to dark olive green to a 15-bit colour palette showing up to 56 colours at one time onscreen.
The Gameboy Colour also only required 2 AA batteries to operate as opposed to the predecessor Nintendo Gameboy advanced handheld gaming system which required a total of 4 AA batteries.
The Game Boy and Game Boy Color combined have sold 118.69 million units worldwide, with 32.47 million units in Japan, 44.06 million in the NOrth & South America, and finally 42.16 million in the other various regions.
With the integrated infrader communication port you could easily and seemlessly wirelessly link with other gamers when using certain Nintendo Game Titles.
One of the best advantages to the backwards compatibility of this particular Nntendo Handheld unit is that it actually would enhance your original Nintendo Gameboy Cartridge games with a basic 4, 7, or ten colour shading allowing you to see your favorite Nintendo Gameboy Game Titles in a whole new light.
The Nintendo Gameboy Colour upon its launch in the final quarter of 1998 also launched a few new games to go alongside this new advancement to the Nintendo Handheld systems including Centipede, Game and Watch Gallery 2, Pocket Bomberman and Tetris DX.
The Nintendo Gameboy Color advertised the Logo simillar to the original Gameboy but with a almost handwritten style of font spelling out the word COLOR in an original color for each, they were named:
C = Berry
O = Grape
L = Kiwi
O = Dandelion
R = Teal
These five colours were also the original colours the Nintendo Gameboy Color units were available in upon first release. Later on Nintendo added a large fvariety of colour options and choices one of the most popular being the Atomic Purple version of the Nintendo Gameboy Color.
