This Guy Made A Terrific 'Game Boy' Out Of Paper When He Was Nine Years Old

Reddit user Juankestein has shared images of a "Game Boy" he built when he was nine years old, which is a fancy name for something he made out of paper. It's awesome.

To mimic the scrolling effect of a 2D platformer, he's made levels on long rolls of paper, which as crude as it sounds isn't that far off from what the actual developers of those old games would do.

To play, it looks like you just... run your finger along the scrolls.

Paper Mario indeed.

When I was 9, I tried to make a "GameBoy", these were the levels. [Reddit]

    Stopped at the word Reddit, already knew it was gonna be a waste of time reading on, being reddit is the scum of the net.

      Clearly good sir, you have never, ever, been to 4chan.

      Look at this guy? Look how controversial he is! I also hate Minecraft, people who play it are scum. I also hate facebook, everyone on it is scum! I er... hate.... Superhero movies! All that watch it are scum! Have you ever heard music? I hope not, because then you're scum.

    I once made a Sega out of a Nutra-Grain box, where's my article?

    terrible battery life i hear. and backlight support is almost non existent.
