What is it?

I got my first Gameboy around 1990 - mainly because I was addicted to Tetris and wanted to play it anywhere I was. Well, near on ten years later, the little machine is still popular and selling well, and it's still running on pretty much classic hardware. It may be the only popular 8-bit being sold anywhere!

What do I have?

An original Gameboy (known as a DMG) that I purchased in early 1990, a green Pocket Gameboy (bought in 1997) and a teal Colour Gameboy purchased in early 2000.

What am I doing with it?

Mainly playing games on it, but I have fiddled with programming it - I've got a few sprites moving around on a scrolling background.
