Play Gameboy games on your Android phone

June 30th, 2017 by bash Comments

A new device has been created which will allow you to play your old Gameboy games through your Android phone.

SmartBoy, by retro device manufacturer Hyperkin, looks similar to the old handheld in that it has the familiar cross-shaped D-pad, buttons and chunky hand grip.

However, it also has the picture quality of a modern smartphone whilst the game’s black-and-white image upscales to the width of your phone’s screen.

Out this September, it will cost £60 and is compatible with Samsung Galaxy S8 phones and upwards.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
