The History of Game Boy
The first Game Boy manufactured was released on the 100th anniversary of Nintendo on April 21, 1989. As the first handheld console in the Game Boy line, the console boasted excellent battery life and rugged hardware which made it incredibly popular. How popular, you ask? Within the first week of the launch of the Game Boy, all 300,000 units of stock were sold. Later, when the Game Boy arrived in the US on July 31, 1989, the entire first shipment of 1 million units was sold within a week. While there were many revisions, the one that stood head and shoulders above the rest is the Nintendo Game Boy Pocket, a smaller, lighter and far more battery efficient ꟷ the two AAA batteries provide approximately 10 hours of gameplay. The Nintendo Game Boy Pocket was released in 1996 and, surprisingly, did not come with a power LED. This was added later due to popular demand.
The Best Game Boy Games
Tetris: as one of the best-selling games ever invented, Tetris first became available for Game Boy in 1989. Since then, Tetris has been named as Electronic Gaming Monthly's "Greatest Game of All Time". Tetris for the Nintendo Game Boy opened up an exciting world where simplicity and ingenuity came together to produced hours of entertainment. The sound effects and animations of rockets blasting off at the end of each level made the game even more exciting.
Super Mario Land: released in 1989, the game offers on the go action by giving players the first full-scale side-scrolling game for Game Boy. The objective in Super Mario Land is to traverse each level and reach one of the exit doors. The exit door at the top of the screen typically transported players to a mini-game where you could win extra lives and power-ups. The black and white visuals in Super Mario Land are just about what you'd expect from a first-generation release, but that's also what makes it so incredibly iconic.
The Legend of Zelda: developed by Nintendo in the 1980s, The Legend of Zelda is an action-adventure video game incorporates puzzle-solving elements and exploration in a fantasy world that inspired a number of spin-offs and an animated television series based on the game. Unique to The Legend of Zelda is the multidirectional moment, allowing the player the freedom to explore their surroundings and uncover hidden keys and puzzle pieces to progress through the levels.
Pokémon Red and Blue: the game was developed by Game Freak and provides players with an over-few perspective of the fictional region of Kanto in a quest to become a Pokémon master. Players are required to defeat gym leaders, and then face-off against the top trainers in the land called the Elite Four. Another objective is to complete the Pokédex by capturing all 150 characters.
