Plenty of games to download from community forum and a android app to upload direct to device via otg cable.Think of it as pocket Gameboy in 2016 sqeazed down into a credit card size it had sold out very quick.

Not the official Micro Game Boy so not quite worth that value.

I tend to collect Nintendo systems whether unboxed or boxed and so this falls off the radar for me and for most.

It looks pretty cool and compact.

I never expected it to get too hot but I think it's a great little device to kill a few mins on the go.

I voted hot but honestly what'll be the point of carrying two devices when your phone can do the same job for you? Aside from that I think it really is a cool kit.

Pocketchip's pretty good too, slightly better than this in my opinion.

The catalogue of games are growing for this device pretty quickly already some classics ported to it.

Not voted either way, but I've got big hands and watching that gif above there is no way I'd be able to play on that. It also doesn't look comfortable to hold, plus I'd like a bigger screen. I like the idea of it though.

I backed this when it was on KS, hoping to kick me into making some software for it. not used it past trying the included game. Shame as it's a nice piece of kit and is super portable too.
