Developed under the name "Project Mercury", the Game Gear was the primary competition to the Game Boy, the Atari Lynx, and the TurboExpress.
It shared much of its hardware with the Master System and can play Master System games by use of an adapter. Sega positioned the Game Gear, which had a full-color backlit screen with a landscape format, as a technologically superior handheld to the Game Boy.
The Game Gear was notorious for bad capacitors, which means almost no Game Gears exist in the wild that works without repair.
This kit comes with all the capacitors needed to fix your Game Gear. It is a much simpler install than all other kits. Only 3 different-sized capacitors to install.
Soldering skills required. Install guide here - Capacitor Kit Install Guide
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.
