About this deal

First off, the hacks should never have been included, especially since the original games are included as well! The way the AFB8 vs the AFB9/X UI menu operates, I dont think we are going to see the extra boot time from adding games.

every time you hit the ball, you have no idea what angle it will bounce off at, or at what speed, because it seems to be completely random. I just can't understand that out of all the great homebrews out there (and there's plenty), the only known/credible title included was Atari Climber, an updated version of Dennis Debro's Climber 5 game from the year before.

The button layout supports all the VCS switches, along with the fire button and some new features like pause and menu. The Atari Flashback series harkens back to the early days of video games where the simplicity of design and the addictive game mechanics connected instantly with audiences of all ages. Contains the same games as the Gold version, but also includes 2 wired paddles in addition to two wireless joysticks. At the same time, interest in retro gaming—the foundation all these new games were built atop—is soaring sky-high.

The fourth (2019) edition includes the same games as the third (2018) edition but with Atari's unreleased prototype game Frog Pond replacing Frogs and Flies. Two other buttons are used to adjust the joystick difficulty for the left and right controller respectively.Here is Pac-Man showing up on my console with no photo, but when I go to play it, it says "Please, exit to the menu before powering off". Anyways, I think I have my Flashback in the state that I want and with the games (220 total) I wanted, so I probably won't open it for a while now. Either I am really bad at these games (possible) or there is a lag with the bluetooth as mentioned previously. Mine is a bit finicky and it has to be plugged in a certain way to show up so that could be the case for yours if it's not showing up right away.

Two wired controllers, styled after the Atari 2600 originals, are included, as well as two legacy controller ports to add your own optional wired joysticks or paddles. Games included and tested: pong, pitfall, space invaders, Adventure (yes, the one present in the Ready Player One movie). or Flashback2 as it was eventually released as), and contracted out to the same person to design it as well. The console resembles a smaller version of the Atari 7800, [5] [6] and its controllers are also smaller versions of the 7800's joystick controllers, but with the addition of "pause" and "select" buttons.If you can find an "Android" folder on the device, after it was recognized by your PC as a MTP-device, you do have the obb version. Some of the sounds are too high (in pitch) or just wrong (such as the Swirl flying in Yars' Revenge), and there seems to be some framerate issues which cause some blurriness (ex: the music in Haunted House, the cursor in Missile Command, or the Yar in Yars' Revenge). There have been some quality of life tweaks as well to make this replica console more user-friendly.
