Game Selection & Adding ROMs

PocketSprite comes pre-loaded with two emulators, GNUBoy and SMS Plus, that allow you to play every single game on the following platforms:

When you’re tired of the pre-loaded open source games, uploading a new ROM is literally a one-click process. It’s done over-the-air. On Windows, Linux, Mac, or Android, no cables or drivers needed – just connect to PocketSprite’s Wi-Fi network, upload the ROM through PocketSprite’s web interface, and you’ll be playing.

For Gamers: Relive Retro Gaming in Your Pocket

If you spent all your pocket-money on AA batteries, dreamed of falling blocks, or have a soft spot in your heart for rectangular controllers, PocketSprite is for you. Throw on your favorite games in a click and fill in the otherwise wasted moments of your daily transit.

For Hardware Hackers: An Open Source Dev Platform

PocketSprite is a great gaming console in a tiny package, but look under the hood and it’s so much more. It’s an open source, mature development platform that features a full-color, high-contrast OLED screen, sound, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, storage, and an internal rechargeable battery, all wrapped in a beautifully crafted yet rugged ABS case. PocketSprite’s open source toolchain and robust bootloader make development a snap. Say goodbye to re-inventing the wheel. Say adieu to bricking and JTAG angst. Say hello to rapid development on your favorite new hardware device.

How It Works

We’ve spent an embarassing amount of time making this thing perfect instead of doing our day jobs.

We’ve wrestled a highly flexible, tiny microcontroller into submission and we’ve written some fairly great code to give you a superb gaming experience and snappy framerates. Turn it on, pick an emulator and ROM, and you’re off. Flick it off because your boss / teacher / partner is glaring at you, and when you turn it back on, you’re right back where you were.

Want to add more ROMs, other emulators, or your own programs? PocketSprite’s update mechanism is simplicity incarnate: it makes its own Wi-Fi hotspot, and you upload your new apps in literally one click.
