All Joking aside, this thing is excellent. I had some technical questions about the unit, and when i called Hyperkin's costumer service line i got a real person who was very helpful. They are truly a company who goes the extra mile, and stands by there products. This is what i like about the Supaboy.
The display is a beautiful
The buttons and D-pad are crisp and responsive
There is zero input lag, when you push B Mario jumps instantly
You can hook it up to your TV and use the original Super Nintendo Controllers.
It comes with a rechargeable battery. A Nokia battery that can be replaced. Or buy a stand alone charger, a few extra battery, and swap them.
Here are the games i have tested and work.
Super Mario World 2 Yoshi's Island
Donkey Kong Country 1 and 2
Super Mario All Stars & World. Same cartage.
Super Mario Kart
Tetris & Dr. Mario
Super Mario RPG
So in conclusion i love the Supaboy. Its so bad. The day it came in the mail was the best day of my life. Take that birth of my son.

The Unit: The unit itself, the Supaboy, is a very sturdy piece of work. It feels... complete with no rattling and everything. The design of the system closely resembles a huge SNES controller. It's BIG but lightweight and fits in your hands comfortably. However... there are slight problems with the machine. I have 3 complaints about the unit itself. The first one... isn't really a complaint but more of a minor pain to deal with that doesn't really effect the machine. The AC Power cord comes out from the top of the Machine and at times it gets in the way of putting in new games and what not. My second complaint is the D-Pad. It LOOKS like a normal SNES D-Pad however the thing is STIFF. It's sometimes really hard to maneuver the D-Pad if you're playing a game that needs to use every Direction like Contra for example. My last complaint is the Battery life. Fully charged the System only gives you about 2.5 Hours of battery life. It's kinda... Bad... However I am not a huge traveler but it would be nice to play with it off the charger every now and then.
The Games: I tried a lot of my games out and they all seems to work! Some of them worked first time I put them in and I haven't played some of them in ages! But nothing is perfect however and there is 1 game I COULD NOT get to work to save my life. Super Mario RPG. I became depressed right away because I heard the a lot of people got Super Mario RPG to work. And it's not my game because it works fine on my normal SNES. So.. i'm really unsure what to do.Read more ›
The Supaboy is fantastic. Every game I have tried works phenomenally. The unit is very comfortable to hold. It beats the hell out of the RetroDuo portable, in that respect (The L and R shoulder buttons, to be specific). The speakers, at least on the revised units sound more than adequate and get plenty loud. Really, you can't expect cinema quality from speakers so tiny, but they do the job just fine. The screen is definitely decent. I wish it was a little brighter or that there was an option to increase the brightness a bit, but it still looks good. On occasion, you may notice a little noise on the screen in the form of very tiny wavy lines, obviously this is due to cheap internals, but you don't always see it on every game and even when it is present, you really have to squint and get damn close to the screen to notice. It's not something that's going to bother you or that you'll even see most of the time, but it is there, on occasion.
I had no problem with the game clicking right into the unit and holding tight. There's a little switch on the back that slides against the cartridge to hold it in, but it's not even necessary to use. From what I've read, the RetroDuo portable lets the cartridges wiggle around quite a bit once they've been inserted and it can cause quite a bit of games to stop working while you're in the middle of playing. The Supaboy does not have this problem. The cartridges click in nice and tight. And all of my games have worked so far. I've tested about a dozen.
The one and only major problem with the Supaboy is the d-pad. It works well and feels pretty solid.Read more ›
