Game Boy Camera hardware review. Classic Game Room presents a CGR Undertow review of the Game Boy Camera accessory from Nintendo. The Game Boy Camera was released in 1999. Featuring a large spherical camera attached to what is effectively a Game Boy cartridge, the accessory is compatible with most Game Boy systems. It allows users to take photos with a surprisingly robust variety of functions—it has a self timer, a time lapse, trick lenses and even panorama capabilities. The Game Boy Camera also allows for slideshows of your pictures, which are taken at a resolution of 256x224. It also has a handful of games pre-installed, which no digital camera can claim to have. This video review features video gameplay footage of the Game Boy Camera and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's Derek.
