This Game Boy Test Cartridge was given to technicians in order for them to test Game Boy systems for defects. It runs some very simple programs and has the following tests on it's main menu:
This test cartridge will work on all Game Boy consoles, most notably the function that detects button-presses to ensure they’re working; note, though, that this particular cartridge cannot test the shoulder buttons on Game Boy Advance consoles, but can still evaluate the other buttons.
The main menu says:

Used to test a suspected GBC, was able to verify sound was working properly, as well as the buttons. Worth having for modding
Great cartridge to take with me retros shopping. Allows me to check the gameboy status right then and there
Useful tool to use during a mod. Also a pretty cool addition to my collection.
I've looked at this cartridge a few times in the past, but I always passed on it. Recently, I decided to get it, and I'm glad I did. I have a small repair shop for the local community, (Because of loss of work from COVID) And this cartridge really is a time saver. Normally, I would just test with a Game cart, but it takes time to get past load screens, and menus. This cartridge starts quick, and just checks the function of everything needed. I'm very happy with the purchase. You can see a video review of it on my YouTube channel here https://youtu.be/Xu67Wm8PtY8
My son and I plan to refurbish Gameboys and this little cart will come in handy. Didn't think we needed it, but it seemed like a fun item to have in our collection. Now that I've tried it out, I'm glad we have it. Well worth the money. Thank you Handheld Legend!
