The GB Station Light II is a handheld Famiclone, modeled after the Game Boy Advance SP.
It was manufactured by an unknown company and sold through GearBest and other e-Commerce sites like AliBaba/AliExpress, though one listing on Amazon IT seems to be present. Similar variants are currently sold on other websites.
Features contents[edit | edit source]
The box includes:
- the console itself
- a rechargeable battery
- a mini-USB multi-voltage charger with a US plug
- for other regions an additional plug adapter may be included
- newer releases may include just a mini-USB cable to use with a generic phone charger (to save costs)
- a proprietary "Super Classic Card Two" multicart
- a 2.5mm-to-RCA AV cable
The button layout is based off the GBA SP, with L and R acting as Turbo A and B respectively, and the backlight switch is now a Reset button.
The screen measures 4,5x3,1 cm (1.7x1.2 in). It has the wrong aspect ratio and no scaling, and as a result, many vertical lines are missing.
The AV out is NTSC only, and it deactivates the handheld screen automatically when the cable is connected on startup. Just like the original Famicom, the audio is mono only.
Some colors are displayed differently depending on the display (device or AV out): for example, the blue backgrounds in games such as Super Mario Bros. and Arabian appear bright pink on the display but on the AV out, they are light blue.
Games[edit | edit source]
Built-in ("700000 in 1"), 28 games total.
Super Classic Card Two ("222000 in 1"), 18 games total.
Everything else is repeated.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The box features images stolen from Super Mario 64 DS, Mario Party DS, Crash of the Titans and Crash Nitro Kart. It also features the usual "holographic" foil typical for Chinese products.
- The menu music is lifted straight from The NewZealand Story.
- A lot of the games are very early Famicom titles (most dating back to 1983).
- Aside for the removed copyrights, all games (except Anger Bird and Super Contra 6) on the cartridge are unaltered, unlike the built-in ones.
- The "cartridge" is actually a simple hardware switch, meaning that all of the games are built-in but normally unaccessible, and that there might be more hidden in memory.
