The Retro Gaming fever is sweeping the world. People everywhere are reliving the glory days of the video game arcade, in their own homes and even on the go. Take a look at what is going on at ameriDroid: You no longer need quarters or an extensive collection of game cartridges to join the fun- just an inexpensive single board computer and one of these cool cases. There is even a Game Boy style, open source handheld console that allows you to take the sensation with you.


Let’s take a look at some of these cool new platforms:





OGST Gaming Console Case for XU4 (ODROID Game Station Turbo)


This case is designed for use with the powerful, Octa-core ODROID-XU4, using the OGST image available from HardKernel. Although other emulators can also be used, The OGST image takes full advantage of the LCD display on the front of the case, which can display a startup image and information about the games being played. This setup supports the play of games as far back as the original Atari game system, and as recent as the Nintendo64 and even Sony Playstation. This system also boasts 4 USB inputs for up to four players to play simultaneously, making those epic multiplayer battles we all love possible.





Retroflag NESPi Raspberry Pi Case PLUS


Bringing us back to what is highly considered the most popular video game system of all time, almost everyone will recognize the design of this case. Utilizing the extremely popular Raspberry Pi 2 Model B, and Raspberry Pi 3 Model B and Model B+, it offers a smaller form factor that is true to the original. Two USB controller inputs, available function of power and reset buttons via additional scripting, and support for multiple emulators make this case an instant classic.






Retroflag SUPERPi Raspberry Pi Cases


Remember Super Mario World? Well so does this case from Retroflag. For those of you that are craving that 1990’s vibe in your gaming center, look no further than these cases. Again using the popular Raspberry Pi 2 Model B and Raspberry Pi 3 Model B and B+, and available in the classic Famicom or US versions, this case has everything the NESPi case has, updated for the grunge generation. As with the NESPi case, power and reset button functionality are available with a little extra scripting. The game cartridge slot even opens to offer physical storage for microSD cards.








This Do-It-Yourself handheld gaming kit is one of our most popular sellers! You build the handheld gaming system yourself, learning about the components and their functions in the process. Not only does the ODROID-GO offer retro gaming fun, but it has Arduino functionality, MicroPython programming, and a host of projects involving different sensors, servos, and more. All this from a handheld unit small enough to fit in your pocket and take anywhere you ODROID-GO!

I grew up with Mega Man X3 and Sunset riders. I’m trying to remember 2 games that my dad played. One of them was on this i think. It showed someone walking at night then the screen looks up at the stars and i think a dragon or some type of monster flying in the sky. The other game was on a different system but it look like a fighting game and i know it wasnt mortal kombat cause there was no blood lol. Anyway i barly remember it but one of the stages was on top of a montian and i think one of the characters was a human bird thing and they had difderent monsters So hopefully one of you guys can help me to find the games im looking for lol.

I’m not a very knowledgeable gamer & came here because I recently got a modded SNES mini and wanted to compare my list….Missing, Final Fantasy3 (got 1,2 Mystical Quest) Griffey Jr Winning Run ( have Jr. Presents Major League Baseball ) Evo & Madden. Is it wrong for me to want seller to DL a few Mame, Genesis and Neo Geo games into my mini? Watched a few vids of a guy doing it on YT and now I can’t let go of that thought. =•s

I only ever played the super popular games, but some of these look really unique and fun. Basically, my dad still had a Super Nintendo from a while back, and I got into it. He only ever had like seven games; Super Metroid, Mega Man X, Chrono Trigger, Link to the Past, Castlevania, Earthbound and Super Mario World. At least, those are the ones that still worked. Anyway, if I were born like a decade earlier I think I would’ve enjoyed the more obscure games out there. Great list, though! :)
