Download Nintendo Game Boy Color(GBC) ROMs


gameboy color roms Nintendo first released the Game Boy Color in 1998. The biggest update of the Game Boy was that it now featured a color screen rather than the monochrome screen and it was slightly larger than Game Boy Pocket, its predecessor. Its custom 8-bit processor made by Sharp and was part of the fifth generation of home gaming consoles.

Some might argue there wasn't much difference between the Game Boy and the Game Boy Color, as it is similar in design. Unlike the handheld consoles of today, the Game Boy Color was a vertical portrait console rather than a horizontal wide-screen format like its successor, the Nintendo DS.

The Game Boy Color did have three times as much memory as the original Game Boy and it supported 32,768 bits of color. The console was originally created by Nintendo in response to criticism from game developers about Nintendo's lack of a more advanced platform. Enter the Game Boy Color, which soon became widely popular, along with its number one hit game, Pokemon Gold and Silver.

In 1997, Sega discontinued the Game Gear so when the Game Boy Color debuted, at the time, the only competition was with the original Game Boy until the release of Neo Geo Pocket in 1999.

Out of the competing consoles in its market, Game Boy Color came out on top. Combined, the Game Boy and Game Boy Color sold 118 units worldwide, making it the 3rd best-selling console of that time. It was discontinued, however, in 2003 after the release of it's successor the Game Boy Advance SP.
