Donkey Kong Style Game Boy Advance SP Custom Case

Carl Williams writes, "The name Vadu Amka shouldn’t be all that new to too many people reading this, after all he did create a special Sega Genesis/Mega Drive hardware mod that was pretty popular. Now, Vadu Amka has taken to modding the Game Boy Advance SP from Nintendo into a true work of art- Donkey Kong art that is."

I couldn't agree more!
I remember switching to this towards the end of 2003, from the Game Boy Advance. Back-lit display, rechargeable battery, smaller form factor... I was in heaven.

This, combined with the PS2 meant that homework, assignments and sleep hours were all spent on gaming XD. So many hours spent...

If I could go back in time I would do the same thing over again.

Good times...

I third that. My childhood years were the best of my life. I remember playing all those classics: Kirby, Mario, Pokemon, Hamtaro, GBA SP Video, and many other titles. I just dug it up to find that my GBA SP was still alive, albeit with an internally scratched screen. I played about 2 hours with some of my old games, I think some manly tears were shed. :')

Would anybody know by any chance where I can buy a replacement screen?

Backlit display? PSHH I had to hook a light up to the back to see the screen at night.

@GdaTyler

I'm in the same boat. After 11 years, I still have mine but the battery needs replacement. There is just something special about the gaming years back in the 1990s-2000s during my childhood. It's a feeling that cannot be replicated as an adult and will remain with me till I die.

@annoyedgamer
I was referring to the Game Boy Advance SP, pictured above.

it's pretty cool.. I guess.. but what's up with the sideways video and only the crappy shot of the system open?
