The Original non-backlit Gameboy Color is likely the reason for my terrible eyesight in adulthood

 

A year ago, if you wanted to backlight your Gameboy Color you'd need enduring patience, a steady hand, a soldering kit, a sacrificial GBA SP and some help from BennVenn

 

at least if you wanted it to look as good as the above kiwi gameboy color...

 

Now thanks to BennVenns new "FreckleShack" custom LCD screens and Chinese mass production, you can now purchase a complete kit which doesn't require any soldering whatsoever, practically plug and play!

You can pick these up from Ebay, Amazon (occasionally) or BennVenns shop itself, Bare in mind BennVenn is based in Australia so postage can vary.

 

So if you're like me and genuinely refuse to grow up, Bring a new lease of life into your Gameboy Color!

maybe the kids will think it's one of those iPhone covers

Now I just need a Gameboy Color....I have a GBA SP, but yeah. Well, actually, I have the Hyperkin Smartboy which will do the same.

I’ve always found the remakes, as good as they are...never quite do as good as the original!

I'm a HUGE fan of the SP for playing GBC/GBA games. Big bright screen, adaptable form factor, comfortable.

Aside from the headphone jack, I think it was just about their finest device.
