GameShell is a retro hand-held gaming console. If you liked the GameBoy, you’ll probably like GameShell. It is a small “Clockwork Pi” computer with a 320x240 screen, battery, speakers, and gaming keypad.

Best of all, you can run Arcade games on it!


You need to assemble the GameShell. At least, the one I was sent needed assembly. It was an easy snap-together process that didn’t take long. I do recommend using a file or some sandpaper to get off the extra plastic.

At the time of this writing, I haven’t gotten sound to work yet.

Disclaimer: I was sent a free GameShell to get the Arcade library up and running.
