Yeah i reckon you need small child-like, or Trump sized, fingers to play this.

You're telling me they couldn't have made a machine with Pac Man and Space Invaders? That extra 24K of space must have been a real killer.

Perhaps if you have a pet hamster or gerbil? His/her very own Arcade.

I'm not much better on the original sized Space Invaders and/or Pac Man machines to be honest. Age has dulled my reflexes.

I used to love this back I'm the day.

These are the things Debenhams sell every year for similar money and then clear out for a fiver in the January sales.

Might be good for kids but I think my fingers are also too phat for those midget controls

My bad - the Debenhams one is actually bigger than this and has 240 games built-in:

Plus 10 bit

Yeah will be a tenner or less come Boxing Day.

OP just watched Techmoan's video review of these

Price is cheaper than OP has stated, get 10% discount on Menkind's site by using CYBERMADNESS code at checkout so even cheaper and a nice stocking filler

Mini Pac Man

Heat from me as they do look really nice

My 1st gaming addiction and I need one. Must resist the urge!

overpriced. Just get the official mobile game app. £4.99 on Google Play. Job done.

8% on TCB

Does it make that noise too... as they move along.

These look great, very tempted by Space Invaders...if only it was Defender, Scramble or Phoenix. ...worrying that I’d buy one of those instantly but wondering if Doom VFR is worth £14!

These look oddly authentic. Are they emulated or accurate rewrites? I'm really curious what's going on under the hood.

Apparently can be hacked to 4 games...

The mobile game is one thing, these are something different entirely. I'd argue Pac Man Championship Edition is played today the best version of Pac Man available, but the thing with these Mini Arcades are the form factor and collectible nature.

240 games, none of them any good. Besides, these Mini Arcade items are collectables, that one you highlighted on Debenhams is nothing of any value.

Yes I agree, the Debenhams one does look a bit knaff. This keyring one has more novelty value too.

Agreed. I'm sure somebody will get something out of the Debenhams one, for 10 minutes perhaps, but I fear that's missing the point. While both Space Invaders and Pac Man Mini Arcades are playable, it's more the authenticity and collectible nature of said items which are key here.
