Yes it is in black & white and the game quality is 1970s but the Gameboy is now and will remain a classic to us gaming aficionados. The Gameboy was the ultimate in finally making those terribly long car rides and insanely slow doctor appointments so much more bearable. I mean honestly I owned maybe 5 or 6 games but I can't recall any other than Tetris and the hundreds if not thousands of hours straining my vision at play. Graphics Quality Black & White. Gritty.
