4.1/10

With so many emulators and clones on the market at the moment, we thought we’d give one a go and coughed up £14.99 on the My Arcade Pixel Classic. What a waste of money it was! In their Amazon listing they describe this as “surprisingly competent technologically”, and whilst it works it definitely falls a long way short of competent.

My Arcade Pixel Classic Review

This NES clone is a handheld emulator designed with an 8-bit look to appeal to the retro gaming market. It boasts 300 games, but you probably won’t want to play any of them. Because there’s nothing big-name available. You can choose from classics like Sudoku or a rip of PooYan to pass the time. There are sound and a headphone jack. Also, you can choose to go retro with AAA batteries or hook up to power via a Micro-USB cable.

It’s modelled after the original Game Boy and feels like a market-stall 90s knock-off. The wafer-thin plastic screen is fragile and stuck on randomly, so it’s misaligned with the actual graphic display. The buttons are plastic and clunky, and the volume settings are loud, unbearable, and off. Even if they made this a premium built handset. The lack of any decent games is still the biggest hurdle for me. There’s a handful of DataEast titles, but beyond that, you’ll struggle to find anything worth playing.

Maybe this would be a good purchase for a child who needs to be entertained on a road trip. But otherwise, I’d say look for something better elsewhere. Finally, check out our other gaming reviews.
