Games "The Super Game Boy is probably the coolest piece of video game hardware in existence. It's also probably the biggest wasted opportunity in video games. It's been pretty much entirely forgotten about now, because - as is pretty common with neat hardware made by Nintendo - very, VERY few games ever really took advantage of it at all. And it's a shame, because the unique visual style of Super Game Boy-compatible games, in addition to just looking really neat, can teach a lot about effectively using colour in games. The ones that do work exist in a really bizarre stylistic place."

Cool. I didn't know the Super Gameboy worked that way. I thought the enhancement it offered beside the border image was offering separate palettes for the background and sprite layer. Kinda sad that it doesn't do that, but it is cool the options it does give compatible cartridges.
