For the first time, My Arcade's Pixel Player arrives in the UK, packing over 300 8-bit games into an affordable, lightweight handheld.
Those looking for some 8-bit nostalgia, the Pixel Player from My Arcade could be worth checking out. For roughly fifteen pounds, this handheld offers a pretty staggering catalogue of retro inspired games. There's a whooping 300 to choose from, along with eight data east classics, such as Burger Time and Karate Champ. The menu is clear and well thought out, making it simple to browse each one. Although the list is impressive, I did find myself only returning to a handful of them. You'll probably try many of them for five or so minutes, then never return. Some are really bad, and you'll notice a lot of them play very similar. Yet, others can be surprisingly fun. Bad Dudes was one of my go-to favourites.
