    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.

    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.
