Brand New Watara/Quickshot SuperVision Emulator ‘Wataroo’ Out Now

Watara-Supervision-Emulator-Wataroo-ReleasedWhile the Nintendo Game Boy may have ruled the handheld roost in the early nineties, it didn’t stop the many efforts from a wide range of companies to dethrone the portable king. Watara were one of the bold companies copying the Game Boy’s ethos, however, their cheap alternative - the SuperVision - came across as a little too cheap, and quickly faded into obscurity. With so few fans of the system today, its emulation options have been somewhat limited until now.

Retro gaming developer Osman Celimli recently released Wataroo on his official website, a Watara/Quickshot SuperVision emulator for Windows. With the only other emulator available for this obscure handheld having been abandoned for many years, this new development is a welcome addition to the preservation world. Offering compatibility with the expansive selection of Game Boy styled titles, those unfamiliar with the SuperVision can finally find out for themselves as to why the Game Boy remained at the front of the handheld race.

With gamepad support, save states, overclocking options, and even Super Game Boy style custom palettes, there’s never been a better time to explore the SuperVision. Wataroo can be downloaded for free via Celimli’s website.

Just thought I might mention this. I hear in articles and videos all the time about companies trying to"dethrone" Nintendo's Gameboy. I don't think it's the case of trying to dethrone but more like trying to take a bite of the money. Most cases, Supervision included, I don't think they thought they could topple the market, but they saw an opportunity to make some cash by riding on the tailwind of the Gameboy.
