Like, if you hold select while you start up a game, it'll show the game in a Gameboy or Gameboy Color.

And if you hold L+R and press Y while playing a gameboy game, it'll use the retro green look, complete with blurring!

Are there anymore like this? And is there a way to use the Gameboy color feature on the original Gameboy games?

You probably had a Gameboy pocket, like me.

The old Brick Gameboys had a green backdrop, so the sprites looked green and black. At least, that's what I remember from my friend's >_>

The ORIGINAL Gameboy had both. If your first Gameboy was a Gameboy Pocket or Gameboy Color, then this doesn't apply to you.

Looking back till now, Nintendo knows how to make visually appealing handhelds. That transparent Pocket is sexy.

I still have my mustard-color GB Pocket, and play it from time to time. The contrast slider is kind of broken, though, it gets really dark or really light unless I keep messing with it and find the "sweetspot".
Play games, not systems. There are people who like games that you don't, grow up.

My first handheld was the clear Gameboy Pocket and I bought Donkey Kong with it (the puzzle-platformer, not the Country spin-off).

Good times >_>
