If you have watched the movies “PIXELS”, you would probably had a glimpse of what the Arcade machines looked like in the 90s. Make no mistake about it, those are the coin operated gaming machines that you find in the Army camp canteens and club houses then.
Teenagers during those times do no have any iPhone or Android phones or Tablets to play games. There is also no internet or USB during those days. Much of the enjoyment was to beat the high score with the different levels.
Thanks to NanoArcade, you can now relive those days with the this battery powered device. With a small compact size slightly larger than a 5.25″ HDD and weighs lighter than a iPad, this device allows you to install Java powered games into it.
To play, just power on the device at the bottom right of the device. There is also a USB port and a speaker out jack on the front panel. The USB port is for you to install games by copying it from your USB device plugged into it. The 2 rectangular and 6 round buttons are configurable for the game play. The Joystick controls the directions of the object in control.
The device is power by 3 “AA” battery”. You can save some costs as it doesn’t require the more expensive Energizer batteries.
Below is the instruction manual which details the procedure to install new games after downloading them off the website as seen in the manual.
