Behold: The Game Boy Calculator

Saturday April 19, 2014

My good friends at TinyCartridge stumbled on an interesting thing: A newspaper column (and a video) outlining some non-traditional games for the original Game Boy. Though, I suppose a more appropriate modern term for these "games" would be "apps."

The games from InfoGenius included a calculator and spellchecker, a travel guide, a Spanish translator, a French translator, and a personal organizer and phone book.

The column praises the games for being convenient. Hard to imagine looking up names and addresses on a brick Game Boy, but it wasn't too unusual for non-traditional games to show up. The King James Bible was available, too.

And if you want to go even further back into Nintendo's handheld history, you can try reading my history of the Game & Watch.
