Give Your iPhone a Game Boy Makeover With This Theme

Tired of staring at the fancy-looking display on your iPhone? Are you longing for a theme that fits more with your style? Does that style happen to only include the colors black, gray, and yellowish-green? Then you might be interested in this new theme for Apple’s little device that essentially makes it look like an old-school Game Boy. Designer, Rob Sheridan, recently put together this iGameboy theme (available for download at MacThemes) to give the gadget that distinctive look that most gamers from the 80′s will recognize immediately. He also designed numerous icons for some of the phone’s more popular programs, like Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter. There are even two different varieties to choose form: one with Game Boy’s signature buttons on the bottom, and one without.

So you can download this theme and relive the classic days of gaming, except this time, AA batteries won’t be worth their weight in gold if you run out.

All these themes on the iPhone/iPod Touch are SO lame, because you’re almost guaranteed to have at least one program that doesn’t have an icon in the theme, meaning it sticks out like a sore thumb.

The only way you can deal with this is to start going in and changing icons by hand.

And why would you want to make your device look so ugly anyway?

I agree that it’s not the best theme, but it does look pretty cool. As with all themes for any device not just the iPhone the icon issue is always going to be a problem, but if you really want to use one of these “cool” themes it’s usually not too hard to create a custom icon yourself. Although you might have to think outside the box to pull it off for this particular theme.
