Updated 5 March 2023

As retro gaming experiences continue to gain popularity, retailers are finding ways to tap into this trend with new products. One such product is the Typo Retro Gamer handheld gaming machine, available at Cotton:On. This device comes pre-loaded with 240 classic games, allowing players to enjoy a range of classic gaming experiences on the go. One standout game on the device is Curly Monkey, which has quickly become a favorite among gamers.

I purchased the Typo Retro Gamer machine from Cotton:ON Retro Gamer. The retail site has only a brief description of the physical packaging and just a photo of 25 small screenshots on the back. This may be adequate for packaging in a shop store but it is a little underwhelming for an online storefront. We will examine this beatufil machine and hopefully give you more helpful research information. I love all things retrogaming The Typo retro game handheld computer is not a big name gaming machine. But consider for yourself if there is enough room in your games collection for a one off machine. In our mind there is; If only to play every once in a while.


Many cheap gaming machines bundle no-name games together. They figure that by having 100s of games, buyers would assume that there must be one or two good ones in the list. This is a common marketing approach for cheap gaming machines. By bundling a large number of games, manufacturers can create the impression of offering more value for money and increase the chances of buyers finding a game they enjoy. However, the quality of these games is often questionable, and many buyers may end up disappointed with the overall gaming experience. It is important for consumers to research and read reviews before purchasing such products.

Readers might consider buying a handheld gaming console because it offers a portable and convenient way to play games on the go. These cheap devices often come with a large number of pre-installed games, providing a variety of options to choose from. They can also be relatively inexpensive compared to larger gaming systems. These handheld consoles can be a great way to revisit classic games from the past or discover new ones. They offer a fun and accessible gaming experience that can be enjoyed by people of all ages.

Product Packaging Blooper

Retro-gaming games list
requires 3xAA and takes 4xAA batteries

To the trained eye there are lots of typos on product packaging. Most of the time it is minor typographical errors like missing a full-stop or alignment of text. However, it doesn't take a super-sleuth to see this simple typo here. The battery cover states that the product requires 3xAA batteries. Yet, the product physically takes 4xAA batteries. A quick check by us found that the retro-gamer didn't work with only 3 batteries.
