Topic: Can unofficial gameboy games harm your console

Maybe this should have been in the GBA thread since my gameboy is a GBA SP, but the game I'm mainly thinking of is a Gameboy color game. So I recently ordered that Tobu Tobu that was released in 2019 I think. So technically its not a official game, but its not a bootlegg either so I hope its ok I'm asking.

Just wondering if unofficial games can harm my GBA SP somehow. Might also get that game where you play as agameboy beating up phones if unofficial games can't harm my GBA.

@Tobiaku I do not think so.

They are just ROMS that the game reads. I have NOT heard of a bricked or damaged GB or GBA because of bootleg/unofficial cartridges.

The only thing I could think of is if the cartridge board is too rough that it might damage the connector pins inside the console but still that might be a placement error on the part of the player.

@Zuljaras Thanks for the answer ^_^
Don't remember where I heard it, so had to ask just to be sure. I think everything should be fine then, unless I get a screwed up copy of the game.
