Why won't my Game Boy game save? Most Game Boy (Original, Color, and Advance/Advance SP) cartridges that allow games to be saved contain a small internal battery to store your save states. Over time, this battery degrades and needs replacement.
When these games were developed, flash memory was very expensive, so volatile memory powered by a small battery was often used instead.

Level2 is a small reality born in 2021 thanks to a group of retro games collectors. By combining passion and knowledge we created Level2, to allow all retro gaming enthusiasts to bring the handheld consoles of the past back to life, using only high-quality products.
We do it because we believe that the future of retro gaming is increasingly linked to the maintenance of the consoles themselves and because we feel we can bring back happy memories, which revive the golden era of video games when everything was a discovery.
We believe you can trust us because we are constantly looking for improvements, because we only rely on the most capable suppliers for the products we sell, and last but not least, because everyone in Level 2 Retrogames is a passionate videogamer like you.
We are Retrosix partner for Italy and Europe.
