The Wotsit is ready to return.

Assuming it’ll turn out like a local pub when it gets new management – they let all of the barred morons back in.

They’ve just gone an announced a really bad 2600 console. The 2600+ which is just another bad emulator box and won’t run all games.

Still better than the A500 Mini.

Never used one. Are they that bad?

I really like mine. It’s great for taking over to a mate’s house and easily firing up a few games over several beers. The lha images are game changing.

It’s a no fuss solution. I’ve got a MiSTer so that goes a good Amiga recreation.

The Retron 77 never supported bank switching. Not sure if this 2600+ does either, it’s a dumb oversight. Either that or they can’t find a FOSS 2600 emulator where they don’t have to pay for commercial use.

This looks brilliant. The colours are lovely, the pixel perfect collision detection is what George says it is and the intensity ramps up nicely at each level. If I had a 2600 and it had a physical release, I’d buy it.

I probably should have waited until the end of the video before writing that last comment lol… who knows, maybe I should just buy the physical version of Caramujo and use it as an excuse to eventually get a 2600.

A game combining Cujo and Digby, the biggest dog in the world would be fantastic, especially if the colossal rabid canine was unleashed in Wembley stadium during the FA Cup final.

Amazing to see what they can now do with such old hardware.
