This Division 6 mod allows you to change the speed of the Game Boy Color (GBC) to one of four speeds including: normal, fast, ultra and slow-motion by simply simultaneously pressing three buttons on the GBC. GBAccelerator is useful for quickly bypassing text in games, speeding up games when they experience ‘slowdown’, for slowing down the action in tough games and for custom homemade games made to use the faster processing power that GBAccelerator provides. Chiptune producers will be able to create new, crazy sounds since the audio changes pitch as the speed changes.

This kit features completely internal installation so it won’t affect the look of your Game Boy.

Basic soldering skills are required to install this mod.

Like a Doduo Tower in a handheld

Very pleased with this product. When I emailed support, Jack from Hand Held Legends was kind enough to explain the problems they've seen with IPS kits on the GBA. Banking that the Game Boy Color's lower base clock would bypass those issues, I went ahead and paired the accelerator with a HISPEEDIDO Q5 IPS HDMI kit, and I'm frankly thrilled with the results. I'm speeding through the grinding sessions that put me off replaying my old favorites and I couldn't be happier. One caveat—the mod requires removing the GBC's own clock crystal from the motherboard. It's packed in tight among other components and can be tricky to remove without a hot air rework station or very careful work with a soldering iron.
