This beast, on the other hand, features a more slick design that you can actually grip, looks as stylish as its original TV brethren, has inputs for the original controllers, and has enough cartridge space so the games can be inserted and played without crashing while you're holding the system. As a result, the Supaboy is a flippin' godsend!
As if it wasn't great enough that you could play just about all of the entire library of diverse and vibrant classic video games, you could even hook the console up to your television and play it exactly like an old Super Nintendo system! And despite its smaller size, it's still big and bulky enough to hold the original system hardware inside. Does that meeaaa-YES! You can play almost every single game! I'm not sure about games that support the Super Scope, since that peripheral requires an old television, but I can safely say that it played Star Fox perfectly. Heck, in case if you feel like playing a large Game Boy or Game Boy games on the TV...Yes, the Super Game Boy is in fact compatible! Everything that was compatible on the old Super Nintendo is available territory here!
Another reason for the four stars is due to the clumsiness of it's operation. By that, I mean the process of putting in a cartridge and taking it out. It's for this reason that I do not recommend this console to children, or anyone below the age of 13 or 14. Putting the cartridge in and taking it back out is a much rougher experience than you'd expect, and you feel like you're going to break the cartridge every time you do it. If you pull out the cartridge from one side at an angle, it slides out a little bit better, but still not ideal.
Overall, it does what it says it does, and it does it well, but the question is for how long? Also, it has questionable durability and practical use, so keep that in mind. I suggest this for older gamers who want the convenience and novelty of having a console like this, and are willing to accept the risks involved with a third party product of any kind.
• All cartridges from all regions are usable so if you wanted to play a Super Famicom game like "Rockman & Forte" ("Mega Man & Bass" in America), it is easy as 1-2-3.
• Headphone jack for when you wanna hear Guile's theme privately.
• Audio volume is adjustable for when you want sound or not.
• Super Boy is compatable.
• Can be connected to the TV, which replaces your actual SNES.
• Can connect controllers to the console, but only works on the TV mode.
• When sound is at the max, you can hear a buzz sound.
• D-pad is stiff and buttons are too far out for me.
• The start button is on the left side instead of the right side.
• When connected to the TV, you have to connect a controller to the Supaboy unless your using a retrobit adapter for some other console like when you wanna play "Sonic the Hedgehog 2" on the SNES (Great adapter which you need to buy).
• If you place the cartridge in an odd motion, you could get a message about illegal copyrights.
• Pulling out the cartridge is hard, and you have to pull out really hard.
• The retrobit adapters don't work on the console (when not connected to the TV).
• The only way you know if it is out of charge is when the screen glitches.
In the end, no matter all the cons, you can eliminate the cons for what the Supaboy does on-the-go. I think it's worth the money, unless you prefer playing SNES games with an Xbox one elite controller 😄.
