When they first came out, the Game Boy models were the cream of the crop. Even the original DMG model, the screen looked stunning for the time. Despite nostalgia being a powerful thing, the screens haven’t aged well in our post-4K world.
A great way to breathe some life into that screen is to use a bivert module. These modules enhance the contrast of LCD displays by biverting/inverting the pixel orientation on the screen. The difference is pretty noticeable too, with a sharp blue appearance and better grayscale saturation.
This reworked version of a bivert module is available in DMG and Pocket versions. It fits perfectly on the Game Boy PCB without any need for wires. It’s a simple and easy soldering project, but your eyes will thank you when you’re finished. The lens of nostalgia can only take you so far, after all.
