    Nintendo really confuses me

    If Game boy color games work on game boy advance, and game boy advance games works on DS, why doesn't game boy color games work on DS?

    Sorry no images, android app forces me to have video or image.

    That's true. Would've been nice to have backward compatibility

    I have though the same thing years ago, apparently is a hardware incompatibility, I don't really know the exactly details.
