A Closer Look

Final Thoughts

The Mini Arcade contains 240 games, so there’s going to be something for everyone to play, although don’t expect to see big recognisable games – although there are plenty of clones of games like Space Invaders.

The Mini Arcade requires 3 AA batteries, although you might want to have a few spare on hand as they don’t last very long if you are playing a lot!

The controls are very simple (just like arcade machines of old) – you have a joystick to move, an A and B button depending on the game and three controls buttons – reset, volume and start.

The cabinet looks like arcade cabinets of old, lots of colourful stickers – to really takes you back.

The 2.5″ screen is fairly clear and is the best you are going to get from such a small screen.

The Orb Mini Arcade Machine is a lot of fun to play – it’s just a shame the games aren’t the originals, but you will still have fun.

The Orb Mini Arcade Machine is available now priced around £24.99.
