Inidiana Jones (and his lovely assistant) unearthed an ancient artifact from the Temple of Doom, my bedroom.
The ancient artifact is my first generation Game Boy, Surprisingly the aging device still works but breaks down easily if not handled with care. There’s no sound as well.
The year of manufacture is 1989 but I think my parents bought this for me in the mid 90s.
This beast of a machine needs 4 AA batteries to run. Good thing today’s handhelds uses rechargeable Li-ion batteries. Save us the trouble of buying batteries.
This is the magnifying glass cum external lights attachment. Ideal for playing in dark environment since Game Boy uses dot matrix display (no backlight). The magnifying glass gives one headaches if used for a prolonged period.
I only have one 120 games in 1 cartridge back then and my favourite game was Wario Land. For the uninitiated, Wario is an antagonist to Mario, an anti hero.
I bought this second hand Game Boy Advance SP a few years ago. Used to love playing with it but soon got tired of it.
Btw does anyone still remember how with old cartridge games, if the cartridge fails to work, most of us will probably give it a good blow between the pins and it will work afterwards. Amazing isn’t it? ^^;
Lastly what ancient gaming relic do you have?
