ONM Remembered – #461

“Pull on yer baggy trousers and catch some air.”


from Official Nintendo Magazine issue 88 (January 2000)

The Game Boy Color only really promoted its fancy-pants colour display, but it did provide a technological step-up from its monochrome predecessor, with faster processing and other improvements to make it feel slightly less antiquated. Sometimes it’s hard to appreciate the advancements it made… but man, would it be a lot easier to appreciate ’em if the GBC didn’t haul in a bunch of dodgy pap along with it. £25 for portable bowling?! You’d have more fun imagining yourself bowling.
