Even though it was arguably one of the crappiest digital cameras ever sold, the Game Boy Camera still has a surprising cult following. But not only is it a pain in the butt to carry a Game Boy around these days, particularly with the giant lens attachment hanging off the top, but if you don’t have the proper cable, you won’t be able to do much with your photos.

However, carrying around an iPhone is a whole different story, and now thanks to Epicore you can recreate those awesome greenscale images using the iPhone’s camera. GB Camera emulates the 2-bit color palette of the Game Boy’s screen, and let’s you see the effect in real time via the iPhone’s camera. It also lets you tweak the green balance, brightness and contrast, and even toggle a pixel spacing option get to that perfect LCD look. And it’s just $0.99 available on the App Store right now.
