FAQ

  • Could you fit this in a Game Boy Color/Pocket?
    • It would be a very, very tight fit and you’d likely have to forego the SD card cartridge reader.
  • How do you get audio out of the Pi Zero?
  • What’s the battery life like?
    • 3.5-4 hours on a 2000mAh battery.
  • Can’t you just buy a Game Boy shell to use since all the insides get replaced anyway?
    • The original project used several internal pieces from the Game Boy, including the controller board, headphone jack, power switch and cartridge reader. It is possible to use a custom PCB for the controls, aftermarket power switch and headphone jack, but you would have to forego the SD Card cartridge adaptor.
