2 new clone handhelds
« on: March 07, 2018, 07:12:19 am »
I just ordered two new clones for kicks.  I'm not expecting much, but they look neat and are pretty cheap.

These both seem to be handhelds marketed under the "ORB" brand.

Both feature:

  • 1.8" screen
  • powered by 3 AAA betteries

Here's a video review of the first one:

And similarly, the second one:

The games seem to be generic/clones rather than NES roms or anything

Thanks for posting those.  Yeah I did watch those before buying.  The
handhelds are cool, I think I was more drawn to the games.  You say
they are clones, but I was having a hard time identifying the games
that they originally came from. 

I guess the games had to be pretty far from the original to be able to sell
them in the UK without someone coming after them for copyright. 

So even though the games, for the most part, will be crap.  It'll give me
a few laughs to check them out... and nice little handhelds to have
in my growing collection.

The reviewers seemed to look on to them rather positively.  They are probably
in the air on the way to Tokyo, so I will have to wait to comment.
