@MattPrince. I got 3D Monster Maze when it came out, and still have it somewhere in the loft. In black and white, with no sound but the hiss of the capacitors it was creepier than most of todays stuff.

Why the distinction? My Droid has a universal emulator (NES, SNES, Gameboy, Gameboy Advance, Sega Genesis, and GameGear). Though soft buttons aren`t the same as playing on the real deal, the HD upscaling and ability to play modded roms make up for that.

Jeez, I`m getting old... I was in the military by the time gameboys came popular over here. In my day we had to make do with zx spectrums and commodore vic 20s...and before that the height of entertainment was running around outside with a stick full of dog poo. :-)

The magnifying light was one of the things I wanted most. Now, thinking about having to use one then just gets on my nerves.

SO THAT`S HOW YOU USED THE MAGNIFYING THING! Oh God I kept trying to sandwich my gameboy in between the mirror and the plastic bit... that said it was secondhand so it didn`t come with a box or instructions. Also I was 5.
