What is grey and heavy and loads of fun? Nope. Not an elephant on a trampoline, but a Gameboy. Since the late 1980s, the Gameboy handheld gaming system has captivated children and adults alike, providing entertainment and even a bit of education to generations.


Today, users enjoy both the classic fun of playing Tetris on the original unit as well as the more advanced graphics and gaming options from newer generations including Gameboy Colour, Advanced, and DS. In many ways the grandfather of the handheld gaming movement, this classic gaming still offers players everything from mentally-challenging puzzles to action/adventure gaming options, and, of course, Mario. Whether the classic version or the modern DS, Gameboy is an ideal system for dedicated on-the-go gaming.
