The Nintendo Gameboy is an iconic piece of retro gaming hardware, with new software still being released – in addition to it being a relevent device for chip music making in the modern era. It’s amazing to see new software developed for the portable console, such as the Cartoon Face Screen for Gameboy – a chance to show off your snazzy new backlit screen with BMO from Adventure Time’s cartoon face!
This unique cartridge loads up the cheeky face with controls to cycle through nine expressions including what appear to be sheer joy, fear, pain and extreme smugness! The intention for the program is to show off new modifictions to the Gameboy, such as backlit screens, colour inversions, and other such upgrades! The cartridge is region-free and will work on the original DMG model of the Gameboy, Gameboy Color and Gameboy Pocket. Some might say it’s lunacy, but we love the playfulness of it, and the possibility of more software to come for this 30 year old pocket powerhouse!
The Cartoon Face Screen for Gameboy is sold by SuicideBattery who are based in Leeds, England. They have a number of weird and wonderful gadgets, including other Gameboy software and accessories.
