Micro retro games are all the rage at the moment.
To cash in on this on trend item, the retailer
Cotton:On has released the Typo Retro Gamer hand held
gaming machine. This hand held gaming console comes
with 240 games built in. Our favourite game on this
machine is Curly Monkey, the first version.
We purchased the Typo Retro Gamer machine from
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.
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.
To the trained eye there are lots of typos on product packaging.
Most of the time it is minor
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.
By popular demands, we have listed all 240 games available on the
240 in 1 retro hand held games machine.
It is difficult to determine what sort of order the games are listed in the menu system.
It's a crazy list.
Just keep a look out for our favorite game, Curly Monkey.
