I’ve already discussed my love for the Megadrive at length (hey, everyone always remembers their first console), so I was excited to hear about this offering from Blaze. It’s a portable game player which includes 20 retro classic games, such as Alex Kidd, Sonic and Knuckles, Golden Axe, Shinobi and Ecco the Dolphin. As they’re preloaded, there’s no need to mess around with cartridges, and you can even connect the console to your TV and play on a bigger screen.
You get a colour LCD screen, and built in speakers, and you can run it off 3 AA batteries. I’m more excited about seeing whether I can finally crack the gorilla infested jungle in Alex Kidd though! The device is extremely portable, so it will be great for a commute, and I’m looking forward to annoying my fellow passengers with tinny electro as soon as my player arrives.
