Yes, the price on this is not cheap.  The add-ons will certainly add on that.  Still a fascinating bit of hardware.

I'm not sure which version it is.  That's the image they had on the web page when I went to it.

Not sure if anyone has seen this but definitely worth looking at...The Analogue Pocket!


A multi-video-game-system portable handheld. A digital audio workstation with a built-in synthesizer and sequencer. A tribute to portable gaming. Out of the box, Pocket is compatible with the 2,780+ Game Boy, Game Boy Color & Game Boy Advance game cartridge library. Pocket works with cartridge adapters for other handheld systems, too. Like Game Gear. Neo Geo Pocket Color. Atari Lynx & more. Completely engineered in two FPGAs.  No emulation.

Nice score!  Even if the wife didn't let you reach the 60K mark!  Something to strive for next time.  :)

I have one that I got a few years go and I like the system.  Maybe it didn't do was well as Nintendo itended, which would make it a relative failure.  But it seems to have sold plenty!

This thread hasn't seen any activity in a while.  So, here is a video from Top Hat Gaming Man talking about why the system was not the success Nintendo wanted it to be...

Nice. Cool to see that the system is working for you and in full color!  Be sure to check out this game that has just become available as a binary:


The link to the binary is in the comments for the video.

Curt has stared posting updates again. Looks like work is ongoing for this.  Here is the latest update...

Finished all of the lines into the QFP.    Mark suggested adding in an IRQ and moving the CLK2 line to an standard I/O and not using the PLD GCLK2 input, so I made those changes.  I also add several PLD I/O pin test points since there were several unused I/O pins on the left side of the QFP.   Sent over the updated Schematics and Board files to Mark and Perry so they can give everything and 2nd and 3rd set of eyes before I run off the test boards.  Be nice to run off boards without any further cut & straps and to move the design from its testing & development design to the final design.

Retro News & Chat / Let's Compare - Thundercats!
« on: October 12, 2019, 03:03:27 AM »
Here is a game I've never seen.  After watching the video, I guess I know why.  Has anyone played this?

ThunderCats: The Lost Eye of Thundera is a side-scrolling video game that is based on the original animated television series ThunderCats. The game was published in 1987 by Elite Systems Ltd for home computers including the Amstrad CPC, Amiga, Atari ST, Commodore 64 and ZX Spectrum. An NES version was announced and advertised but was never released.

Gameplay
Lion-O begins the game equipped with the Sword of Omens (with the Eye of Thundera missing from the hilt) but has the option to switch throughout the game between the sword and a short range energy gun. In several levels, Lion-O would jump into a flying vehicle that can fire in a similar manner as the short range energy gun. The first four levels of the game are a part of the Garden of the Elementals, where the player may choose the order they play each of the themed levels, consisting of fire, water, air, and earth.

Each level has a time limit to complete it; when it expires, Mumm-Ra appears and more goons and villains appear to make it tougher for Lion-O to finish.

Curiously, there aren't any boss fights in the game; instead, completing the regular level just announces Tygra, Panthro, or Wilykit has been rescued (after certain levels) or Mumm-Ra has been defeated and the Eye of Thundera has been restored.

And here we have Atari's rebuke of all this stuff:  Atari disputes reports that its retro-inspired console is doomed.
