Note that they will be games designed for the unit, so they won't be arcade games that you'll recognise.

got it today. it's not too bad tbh especially at the price. there's a good galaga clone with ripped music and pseudo sfx. also a good space invaders clone and arknoid clone. it certainly better than most of these systems. at first a scoffed at it cause of the 240 18bit games decription but having seen some YouTube videos I figured it was worth a punt.

I've had one for some time, not being able to save games or scores is a bit of a bummer tbh.
Still worth this £ though.

It's the 'Wagon Wheel' of mini Arcade Machines. Looks massive to a child, but as hands grow, you assumed it was Burton Biscuits that had shrunk the diameter, when it's you that has gotten bigger.
