Featuring high-definition output via HDMI, a classic style joystick and 64 built-in games including classics like California Games, Paradroid, Nebulus, Impossible Mission and Uridium.

  • NTSC & PAL Display modes (60 & 50 Hz)
  • Pixel filter options (sharp, CRT, scanline emulation)

Not impressed with the list of games. Most of the stuff I've still got stashed in the loft isnt on there.

High definition output by HDMI

I wonder if it makes you wait 10 minutes between games for that authentic tape loading experience.
Raid Over Moscow? International Karate (& IK+)? The Last Ninja (1,2,3)? Kung Fu Master? Barbarian (1&2)? Yie Ar Kung Fu? Bangkok Knights? Ghosts N Goblins? Manic Miner? Jet Set Willy? Chuckie Egg? Bubble Bobble? Commando? Rambo? Robocop? Saboteur? Ghostbusters? Spy vs Spy? Gauntlet? R-Type? I.O? Paperboy? Kickstart (1&2)?
Terribly dated games, much more so than the Nintendo mini consoles... similarly pointless to the Spectrum reboot.
Get an emulator rather than spending 65 quid to realise just how overrated nostalgia is.

no last ninja!? I'm out then
worth it for speedball alone!
Base also have it for £64.99
No Microprose Soccer or Airborne Ranger
so does the keyboard work and can you program it in Basic?
99p too much
overpriced, like the various spectrum releases. it'll sell, but it'll sell more if it was cheaper IMO
No green beret no hyper sports no combat school no rambo it's a no from me
No actual working model previews of this yet either, which considering it's released in 2 months is a bit concerning. Especially with the company behind it's past track record.

I hope it does appear in March though, fingers crossed.
Love it!!

Unless anything has changed the included games are fairly irrelevant as they confirmed that you will be able to play your own from USB (so presumably that means support for .the common formats like tap, .d64, .d81 etc), so just add whatever games, demos etc you want.

The keyboard is just for show, and because it's half size it wouldn't be much fun to use. You can plus in a usb keyboard though. There is supposed to be a full size one coming out after this one with working keyboard.

Might have been tempted if paperboy was on it
Voted hot but I can't see why people spend this amount of money when you can emulate this on pc and have access to every game. Especially because most will play for a week and then it will end up in the loft.

If it had been the VIC20 I would have been in like flint.

Isn't that a bit like saying Ferraris will sell but they'd sell more if they were cheaper? Isn't that a bit obvious?!


Hmm no Beach Head, Raid over Moscow, Zenji..oh but as it has Paradroid I'd best buy it!

Any decent usb retro joysticks? 8bitdo do excellent joypads, but are there anything quick shot python or competition pro available?
No Mr Puniverse!

I have a couple of these left over from my misspent youth;

en.wikipedia.org/wik…ser

I've picked up a USB encoder and some 9 pin sockets, a little bit of soldering and I'll have the real thing. I reckon it'll cost me about a tenner in total to get them working again.
Download an emulator and you can get it free and all the games you want. Seems a bit crazy to spend all that money on a joystick, better off looking on eBay for a cheap usb one.

I like to think they were being sarcastic?
Samantha Fox Strip Poker ?
Funny thing is the young folk who originally bought the original, would probably these days be more in need of a Commode
To get the proper experience, we need a tape deck and the games should take 5 minutes to load.

Chill out. It's only been around 35 years.
I still have mine gathering dust. Disappointed to see No dizzy games
This just reminds me of I bitter I was around 1984, I’d go to my best mate’s house and play all these amazing colourful games like Park Patrol and Curse of Sherwood on his C64, I’d then do my parent’s heads in until they bought me the equivalent version for my Spectrum, only then to be bitterly disappointed that these games all played out in blue/yellow blue/red monochrome style colour schemes

No, you have to plug a usb keyboard in
