I got back into retro gaming with retropie.... Is it me or are the Atari games on this type of emulation faster? I played crystal castles with a snes style controller and it's a bit fiddly going diagonal? Maybe it's just me?

Also, those buttons just scream "NOAC", as if it were one of those Jakk's PNPs in a handheld format.

Just popping in to point out that the Jakks systems did not use NOACs, but rather 65C816-compatible Winbond microcontrollers (in their Atari-based systems; just about everything else in their product line used Sunplus or Generalplus microcontrollers).

 

I finally found out who's to be making the woodgrained European Atari handheld (and an accompanying plug-n-play system shaped like a CX40 with a second fire button (atop the stick), planned to house the same game selection): PQube, the folks who publish the Steins;Gate games in both Europe and North America. Funstock is just the main seller.

Maybe not Jakk's then, but I know those keychain things were NOACs, whoever made them.

 

Basic Fun, maybe?

 

IIRC the original Atari Flashback had 2600 games on it too.

I have my finger hovering over a " buy it now" for the FBP pack man edition with 70 games! Where can i buy a SD card with more games to add to the 70 pre installed?

Sorry if this has been asked before but i can't seem to find a link..

Anything 8GB or smaller should work fine, like this: http://amzn.to/2D3PCzv

No, it's only for Atari 2600 games. That zip file is comprehensive in terms of what's actually compatible (some things had to be hacked).

Update! I've bought the 70 game version of the AFP and i love it! The only gripe i have is the screen is a little small for my eyes, as with age i struggle to see/read things close up so i have to put my reading glasses on to see the screen clearly. My youngest lad can play it with no problem though! GGGgggggRRRRr old age sucks!

If a newer version came out with a bigger screen i'd buy it again for sure! Preloaded games are very good although i struggle to on some of the games like breakout moving the bat about as it moves very fast, i can live with that though.

I'd like to put some games onto a SD card but my computer doesn't have a SD slot.. Anyone from the UK put games onto a SD card for me??

I had read a review that said the screen was bad at different angles to see the game, I have not found this at all. The "D" pad seems very responsive also and functions as it should !( apart from breakout)

 

Right back to "Dig Dug" LOL !

Any local 12 year old can help you get the files on your SD card :) Worse case you may have to buy a cheap USB SD card reader. You should probably just get one anyway as they are cheap.

 

Glad to hear you are enjoying your AFP. I ready enjoy mine also!

I am nearsighted so I have to take my glasses OFF to see the tiny AFP screen. I will likely have to get bifocals/trifocals in the near future.

I have progressives. Takes awhile to get used to them, but you don't have the sharp lines in the middle of your lenses.

Just bought this after never playing a 2600 in my life, its awesome. Makes me want to get a real one, which I probably will.

 

Have you put the extra games onto a SD card? Well worth it for sure!

Isn't the hardware identical to the Genesis portable? If so, can I somehow run Atari games on mine?

 

It is not identical. It's only cosmetically similar. The internals are completely different.

That sucks. They should make one that plays both and also supports Master System games!

 

The markets are kind of different, so it doesn't make good business sense.

Sorry I got back so late, but yes. Got over 200 on my SD Card, its awesome! You can pack it anywhere, and plug it in to most TV's. Atari Rocks!
