Final Thoughts

Back when I was a kid (a long time ago now) the handheld consoles we had were these little Game N Watch things – and they were great.

Fast forward quite a few years and we have the Orb Gaming Retro Handheld Console.

The console is both small and lightweight and can easily fit into your hand and pocket.

It doesn’t come with any batteries so the first thing you will need to do it fit 3 AAA batteries, and then you are ready to go!

When you switch it on you get that familiar 8-bit look and sound you remember! The screen is very clear and sharp and the sound is good too.

There are over 150 games to choose from – you just need to scroll down through the list and pick one.

Playing games on the console is a lot of fun and really took me back to my childhood – I have to say I am rather addicted to it! The controls are really easy to use.

The Orb Gaming Retro Handheld Console is available now priced around £14.99 and it’s worth every penny!
