Two new handhelds will help you relive the golden age of gaming


Whether you’re an older gamer who remembers the Atari 2600 and Sega Genesis with nice fondness or a doting grandparent who doesn’t keep in mind precisely what the grandkids needed (the Nintendo Swamp or one thing?), the brand new AtGames moveable consoles will both excite you to no finish or trigger deep disappointment.

These loopy little consoles comprise dozens of Atari or Genesis video games. The Atari model consists of greater than 70 video games, together with Pac-Man, Dig Dug, Pitfall and Frogger. The Ultimate Portable Game Player helps SD card side-loading of video games and consists of 85 Sega Genesis and Mega Drive video games, together with Phantasy Star.

AtGames has been making these items for some time, however for the primary time the methods help HD video and might hook up with your TV through HDMI. Further, the brand new portables embrace extra video games. The new fashions will seem subsequent month and value a measly $60.

I’ve tried the “console-style” variations of those video games, together with the brand new “Atari Flashback 8 Gold Activision Edition,” which options 29 Activision video games, and I discovered myself fairly happy with the pace, high quality and enjoyable. Arguably you may hop on Alibaba and get a PSP-looking retro gaming handheld that performs all of those video games and extra, however if you happen to’re on the lookout for one thing fast, soiled and enjoyable (or if you wish to disappoint the 14-year-old in your life who needs to play these video games like she needs a gap within the head), give them a strive. There’s nothing just like the pixelated Tarzan yell of Pitfall Harry to carry tears to eyes of a gamer of a sure age.
