The Evercade - Is it MADNESS or GENIUS?!



The Evercade is a new retro handheld that has its own cartridges with licensed games, protective cases and full color manuals.
Will game collectors think this is madness...or perhaps genius?!

Looks great, but kinda concerned about the placement of the Menu, Select and Start buttons. Are they easy to hit accidentally while playing?

I didn’t have a problem with that at all, and I captured all the footage in this video.

Great video with clear explanations. It looks well built, and I respect them trying to get developers involved and compensated. Also cool that you're "in" a game. Smart marketing.

That being said, the game lineup looks weak and I can't understand the rationale for using console versions as opposed to arcade versions. I mean, I understand what they said, but what gamer wouldn't want the actual arcade version? Who would prefer a Super Nintendo version of a game because of the aspect ratio?

Nice to have options, though. Good reporting.

Thank you, that's good to know. The price seems decent on both the game carts and the unit itself. I hope it does well and it gets more 3rd party support.

Yeah I agree on the console port vs arcade. If anything, they should have included both. It's not like these arcade games take up a ton of space. It makes me think that there might have been additional reasons for making this decision.

This was a really good review! You covered this little machine very well. I don't know if it's for me, but damn I love the idea.
