I know I spent more money pumping quarters into Galaxian machines back in the '80s.It is tiny and thus kind of hard to use the controls and even see the screen (if your eyes aren't as good as they were back in 1980 or so) but it works and it's fun and it's tiny.I can't imagine actually using the keychain attached to the back. but that just adds to the charm. You could probably hang it from a Xmas tree as an ornament.

  Great Product. Worth it,
Posted By:

I bought the Galaga and Space Invaders versions. I can't say these gave me nostalgia, as I am fairly young, but I am obsessed with 70s - 80s. I love old bands and all, and I can saythat I know quite alot about those times. I can tell you though, these are really nice little cabinets. The attention to detail on the Space Invaders version surprised me. The sounds aren't exactly like the original, but still similar. What really shocked me is what they did with the "color." Back then, the original Space Invaders cabinets didn't use color. They put a kind of clear green panel on the lower screen that made the bases look green. These mini ones of course, use color, but they replicate that same part of the original. As the Invaders come down, they start turning green when they reach a certain point, would would be the pane's top if it were the original. Galaga is a game that requires you to be consistently pressing buttons. With buttons of that size, I'd expect my fingers to ache after 5 minutes of playing. But to my surprise, I played for 15 minutes straight! The Galaga has a lot of frame skipping, especially when the bugs move in circles. The sounds are a bit different from the original, too. Honestly, I thought joysticks like those will break within a week. But they seem well designed. Both of them are really fun to play. You really lose yourself into them when you're playing. I would recommend this for someone who likes 80s, or needs a taste of their childhood. It's the perfect gift too!

Maybe it's just the one I was sent but it wasn't actually playable. It would just play the song and my trying to play didn't do anything. I have read reviews where others have worked though so I believe it was just this one. Still totally awesome & giftable!

  Not very playable,
Posted By:

The Dig-Dug game looks authentic at first, but it turns out to play the music oddly, and most levels end up scrolling to show the entire play field when you dig downward. This makes it cute, playable, but not a very authentic re-creation of my arcade memories.

  Screen stopped working after 3 months,
Posted By:

I mostly got this as a decoration to put on top of my home arcade machine, so I barely ever touched the thing. Unfortunately after about 3 months the screen only turns to a gray color with the sounds and controls still working after less than 15 minutes total lifetime play. I've tried turning it on and off, tried taking the batteries out, pressing/holding every button but nothing. It's just stuck on gray. Past the point of being able to get a return so now it's a paperweight. Disappointed.

  Exceeded expectation, passable gameplay in a very small size,
Posted By:

My son (and I) have enjoyed this mini arcade game (Pac-Man). I am no connoisseur, but found the game play to be acceptable. It even has the vintage introduction of the characters and animation(s) between levels that you find in the original game. I haven't found the volume control (it could exist), so that might be my only recommendation. I have noticed the price has gone up quite a bit since we bought ours, so clearly we aren't the only ones enjoying this arcade game scaled almost for a small action figure.

  Really needs a mute feature Low fps,
Posted By:

These things are amazing. It's great to have at the desk and take a little break for a game here and there. The highscore appears to wipe every now and then which greatly saddens me, but the game play is really decent still. True fans will notice that gameplay isn't a perfect copy and cuts to frames and mechanics were made to make it fit on this impossibly small device, but even those fans will enjoy the hell out of this thing 6 out of 5 for modding potential

Great tiny version of the classic I recall from my childhood! Dig Dug is one of my favorite arcade games, and this is a great little unit. I also have the tinyarcade Space Invaders, and while indeed tiny, they look and sound authentic. The Marquee's and screens are well lit - making them pretty cool to see when sitting in a dark room (with all the sounds, its kind like a 'miniature arcade' on the shelf)Mind you, they can be a little tricky to play on a small screen, but that's part of the charm. I would have loved if they had something to control the volume - the sound is loud (which is cool) but its impossible to play them in the office or on the bus without annoying those around you.However, as a fan of 80's toys and tech, I love this toy.

These are absolutely the best, smallest arcade machines in the world that are available!!!! They work so good! The fact that I am able to play some of my favorite arcade titles on a keychain that has a screen that is no bigger then the face on a quarter is amazing to me!!! Gameplay is better and closer to the actual arcade machines that I grew up playing then some of the other larger size machines that are out on the market right now. These are far more nostalgic to me. I hope to see many more titles in the future! Keep up the great work... thank you!

I'm not one to usually write reviews, but I love these little things. I got Galaga and Frogger just to try them out and see how they were. Seeing the game play and having the little marquis light up had me laughing. I would love to show my 10 year old self these and blow his mind. Seriously if you guys make more of these I will buy them. I need Tapper, Nibbler, Q*Bert, Pooyan, Circus Charlie, Mr. Do!, Tron, etc...(Not too difficult to play and your fingers get a workout. Also, turn the the switch on the back off and on to turn off demo mode.)

I got this Frogger game for my desk at work. (often times I have people sitting at my desk waiting to speak with me so I like to have something to keep them occupied while I'm busy). Everyone has a blast playing with it and it's a real conversation starter. The only negatives are that the joystick gets stuck when moving it left or right sometimes and it is a bit louder than I'd prefer with no volume adjustment.

I bought a couple of these mini-arcade cabinet games for Christmas. I figured that even if they were flimsy, they'd be interesting to take apart or use in other electronics or audio projects. I shouldn't have worried. They're build really well for their size, and the tiny controls respond cleanly to touch and motion without feeling like they're going to break or fail. The sound is correct, the cabinet lights up just like the real arcade classic, and the gameplay is smooth and clean.There's no way in the world I'd ever be able to get two full-size arcade cabinets into my house without making a mess, but thanks to these miniature cabinets, I can have all the fun without any of the hassle. The portability factor is also great, they pack easily. I wish it had a jack for earphones/headphones, but I can add that myself in the future if I feel like it. I absolutely recommend this Tiny Arcade Pac-Man Miniature Arcade game!

Posted By:

Yeah, disappointed with this one. I have collected each and every one of these Tiny Arcades and Galaga is the worst of the bunch. It suffers from slow frame rate. Very noticeable when aliens swarm into formation. It's almost as if the images being rendered are appearing all at the same time instead of circling the way they should. The sound is arcade accurate but the game suffers from very bad lag. Happy to have it in my collection but doubt it will get much play.

Posted By:

When this game is labeled as tiny, they're not kidding. There are miniature arcade games and there are tiny ones. The distinction is that tiny ones are miniatures of the miniature version. Not really for playing, mostly for novelty. Maybe there was a clue in the description that I missed, but would not have bought this had i known how small it actually was, as the entire thing can fit in your hand comfortably.

This little game is actually pretty great. I thought it would be annoying to play so i really just bought it for the novelty value, but its actually kind of fun and easy to play.

I'm giving this 2 stars because it's not what I thought it was.

It's probably my own fault for not taking a closer look at the description, but I opened it 2 days before Christmas to wrap it and discovered it was a key chain.

I can't believe they were able to get a working game this small on a device this affordable! I got it for about $12. For $12, I would expect a little arcade cabinet that lights up but not necessarily one that you can really play. But that's not the case. This is the full, legit game. Sure, it's a novelty item, but it's so fun and so cheap!

Posted By:

This review is for the Galaga mini arcade. It's ok as long as your fingers are constantly moving if not it takes over and moves for you and shoots for you. This also makes the game a bit glitchy to play. As your pressing the joy stick to the left or right if you hesitate even for a split sec it takes over and tries to move the opposite way creating a slight delay. I can't recommend the Galaga mini arcade.

Posted By:

I'd wanted one of these for awhile. Sure, yeah, we've got computer emulations of these games, but so cute on a little arcade machine, lol. Then I thought that they'd be really hard to play... holding down the controls whilst trying to keep the thing set on a table top. No. Its so tiny, it sits in your hand. None of the people playing them in photos is holding it right. You hold it in both hands and use the controls with your thumbs. Just like a Gameboy. Anyway, it was cool retro fun.

  Looks amazing as a decoration but does not play well dew to its small size,
Posted By:

Look I love galaga I got this game as a functional display ,, unfortunately it is not big enough to play properly with adult hands& is not a 100% proper scale Galaga game because of the small screen, the enemy ships are much closer to the fighter ship then in the arcade so it's much harder to to avoid the bad guys shots & with adult hands your thumb blocks part of the screen. But this is still a great decoration & looks amazing in the dark with its lights & looks even better when put next to other games , you get a real feel of a miniature arcade room

  Awesome little arcade cabinet,
Posted By:

This is a great gift for someone who loves the classics. The tiny (unlabeled) buttons are hard to play for an extended period, but (if you're like me,) you're unlikely to last too long anyway while playing Galaxian. The screen is very small and is not a pixel-to-pixel match, so it is granulated. However, I would still highly recommend this for the great price!

  Came with drained batteries; spotty performance,
Posted By:

(1) Manufacturer packages these with a "Try Me" feature . . . so the power switch is ON. That is how I received mine, so of course the batteries were far from fully charged. Including drained batteries is like not including any batteries at all. (2) Impressive, easy to use features, clear display, tracking of High Score . . . but screen goes totally white in the middle of a game. Happened three times during the hour I was trying it out. (Brand new batteries didn't help.) Will probably return; not expecting much better in the replacement. (Made in China. What else is new?)

Has some (original?) bugs that remind you of the bad ol' days of programming errors.One, for instance, is when you lose a gun and your new one is immediately lost when it materializes in the middle of a lingering, incoming missile or enemy craft.

  Smallest full Galaga,
Posted By:

This is awesome! It's a full Galaga arcade! It's pretty and fully lit up display and top, side back front art all OG art! The only downside is there only a temporary highscore, half the fun of arcade is the scoreboard, there needs to be a top 10 scoreboard! Cause it's always my friends, wife, kids trying to beat my score, and when the score 'tiny arcade' gets turned off/on the score gets reset! I actually taped a small price of paper for scores! Fun!

  Magic from back in the day.,
Posted By:

?As someone who qualifies as having a misspent youth in the arcades of the 1980s, I can tell you these small miracles are about as close as you're going to come to owning a real piece of the magic from back in the day. The company recreates each game, pixel by pixel; this is no mere emulation. With an actual reconditioned PacMan Arcade machine going for $1300 US at the time of writing this review, these mini-miracles are quite a steal!The screen is OLED and as crisp as can be, with the controls quite responsive. I have enjoyed watching the original cut-scenes between levels on PacMan as I've played it as well. These games are the real deal.However, due to the size of the OLED screen, if you are forty-ish, as I am, you may want to bring your reading glasses, to see the incredible detail of these beautiful screens. The sound level is perfect, but not adjustable. I leave them for standby for days on end and have yet to replace any of the three AAA batteries in them. If you shut the power off on them at the back, however, you will lose your high scores on them.Congratulations to the incredible team at Super Impulse games for creating these little marvels. This company is an obvious fan of these games and it shows in the attention to detail. They have created some micro slices of nostalgia which bring truly bring great joy to me each day. Well done.

  Sound is 100% Wrong,
Posted By:

I have six of these Tiny Arcades and they are hit or miss. Ms PacMan, Dig Dug, Space Invaders and Galaxian are spot on mini versions of the arcade. Galaga is mostly accurate, but the frame rate is awful and it's far jerkier than the original which makes the bonus "challenging" stages impossible even with double ships. Frogger on the other hand is a good copy of the original when it comes to the visuals but the sound is 100% wrong. The music is not the original tunes and the various sound effects do not match the original. So rather than fulfilling your nostalgia, it just ticks you off.

Was this rating helpful to you?   Yes   No
  Fairly well done, few minor gripes though.,
Posted By:

Few gripes but overall this fits well into the series. The music is only supposed to play when you walk...but it plays the entire game non-stop. As per the other review, some other minor differences but no deal breakers like FROGGER which doesn't even have the actual game rom music we all (who grew up on Frogger) know and love. Hell Bucker and Garcia loved it enough to put it in their song. Frogger's cabinet also is supposed to have a wood grain but Tiny Arcade breezed over that fact as well. Tiny Arcade dropped the ball on FROGGER, which is so far the only one I will NOT be buying. Happy to have Dig Dug in my miniature arcade though!

  Fun for the office - when others are not around,
Posted By:

Bought this for something to play around with at the office and to have a little competition with my team. It's a great little arcade machine. The game works, but I haven't figured out what the use is of the left button?The only downside is that the arcade machine is LOUD and there is no mute or volume control of any kind. I had to take some Kleenex, fold it up, and tape it below the machine (where the volume button is). That sort of helped muffle the volume, but I still wait for most people to leave the office before bringing it out.

  Volume too low, missing sounds, and animation too choppy,
Posted By:

I love these Tiny Arcades, and lover Galaga, but this cabinet is the 2nd worst cabinet they've made (Frogger is the worst). The two major problems with this cab are the sound and the animation. The sound is too low, not so low you can barely hear it (like Frogger), but definitely a much lower volume than all of the other Tiny Arcades. It's also missing sound, like when the enemy ships attack, the sound they make when they descend is absent. The 2nd problem is the choppy animation. It makes this version of the game harder to play than it should be, and ends up being worse in practice than any of the other Tiny Arcades.Normally I would say Galaga is better than its predecessor Galaxian, but the opposite is true for the Tiny Arcades. Galaxian is actually the #1 best Tiny Arcade of them all (in terms of gameplay), whereas Galaga ranks among the worst.If you're into Galaga the Tiny Aracade is still definitely worth getting, it's just not as good as most of the other cabs in this series.

  Sound is way too low, the worst Tiny Arcade yet,
Posted By:

I love these Tiny Arcade and love Frogger, but this cabinet is the worst one they've made so far. And it's all because of the sound. First of all it doesn't have the classic Frogger music; it's been replaced with some generic tune. Secondly, the volume is so low you can barely hear it. It's much lower than any of the other Tiny Arcades. Turn it up! It's WAY too quiet.

  This is the best Tiny Arcade so far,
Posted By:

If you're looking for only one Tiny Arcade as a gift and want the best one, Galaxian is it. I'm not even a big fan of this game in real life, but the Tiny Aracade version is exceptionally good. Nice loud sound, fun action-packed game play, light up marque. Go for it.FYI: Space Invaders is the 2nd best Tiny Arcade!

  Frame rate/screen refresh too low for realistic game play,
Posted By:

I really enjoy this series of mini arcade games. For the most part they have been a good emulation of the originals. Unfortunately this one, a personal favorite, has a frame rate or screen refresh problem. Maybe it is the refresh of the screen or the cpu cannot produce the frames fast enough. I realize this is not a full on arcade system but as I mentioned the others such as Pac-Man and Galaxian have played great. The biggest issue is when the enemy ships are making their formation and they come down in a circle. Rather than individual ships you will see almost a solid circle as they blur together.I still think this is a well made toy and for the price it is worth it, especially as a personal favorite. That being said if you are looking at this one over the others available, I would definitely recommend Galaxian or the Pac-Man series as they play and feel much closer to the original with the refresh/frame rate being enough for the game. I have not written a review of those but I would give them 5 stars compared to the 3 on this unit.

  Almost accurate game play,
Posted By:

Just received my Dig Dig and thought I would pass along some information on the game play. The game itself is just like all the other games from this company, cool size, nice detail for the price. Having played the actual game quite a bit, there are a few things that are different and make it somewhat difficult to play. First, the screen scrolls vertically as you move up and down the playing field. The actual game doesn't scroll. Second, you can't dig up underneath a rock and keep the joystick up to hold the rock, to time the rock fall on the enemies. You get a few seconds and the rock automatically falls. And third, if you are moving in a given direction, and you pump an enemy and then let go, you don't automatically keep moving even if you keep the joystick held down. To move after pumping, you have to let go of the joystick and then move in the direction you want to move.

I got this for my wife after watching a YouTube video where they show you how to open it and mod the system to allow you to play multiple games that are stored in it. There are a few resistor pads that if populated in different order will unlock the other games that are sold separately. Search "ben hack mini arcade" for more info on that.

This is a great (and tiny) rendition of Galaxian from the arcades of my youth. It's pretty small, but really playable if you've got decent eyesight. For me it's a great little desk decoration, but my smaller kids really enjoy toying with it every chance they get! One thing to note, this unit is surprisingly loud for it's size, and the audio seems like it has a small amount of distortion. It's nothing too distracting, but the volume can be startling when you're not expecting it. Overall it's been fun for the entire family!

Only real complaint is that I wished It kept high scores and the screen could use a higher resolution, but I'm nit picking at this point. It blows my mind that a whole arcade game could be miniaturized so perfectly for so little money! For the price of a couple of trips to the arcade, I can relive my childhood. Thank you TINY ARCADE!

This is the full Ms. Pac-Man game. It's amazing they can do this. It's super tiny and just awesome. I am actually better at this version of the game than any other version I've played. I'm not sure if the Ghost AI is different or something - or if it is just because I have to be so focused in order to see the small screen. The screen is great, don't get me wrong. But it is tiny, and you have to be dialed in in order to play it.

I received this as a gift for my birthday after a friend found out how much I love Miss Pac-Man. It completely blew my mind that you could actually play it! I love it. It almost acted like it was in a try me mode at first, but if you turn it off and turn it back on it starts over. It is just the best! I'm looking at buying the rest of them! I included a picture of it on its momma. It's in the lower right-hand corner of the screen right above the white buttons. It's amazing you can play on it it's so tiny!

  What You See is Almost What You Get.,
Posted By:

Firstly, you have to know what you are buying. What you see isn't exactly what you get because the ad's gameplay image is not as sharp in reality. Some people do not realize the unit is so small and ding it. This is technically a keychain with a game. It is meant to be small. If you eyes can not deal with the smallness then move on. I have magnified the screen with a lens and do see that the finer elements are there, such as eyes, but you practically can not make them out. My eyes can not always focus on the screen and that makes the game a bit more difficult.As for practical game play, it does start out a little slow. With a little practice and perseverance I have played Ms. Pac Man up to the pear level and have seen acts 1 and 2. As you go on the game speed picks up and you become too involved to nitpick at graphic detail. While not a perfect emulation this thing is amazing. The arcade stick can be a little tricky but practice makes perfect. There is no volume control. I time the unit to auto-off after 48 seconds of inactivity. That is almost a shame as I would love to have it sit around in "attract mode" just for the enjoyment of it.As someone who grew up during the golden arcade age this is a dream come true. Anyone you know who loves Ms. Pac-Man, or any of these classics probably does not know it exists. Give them one as a gift and watch their expression. They will gush over how it looks just like the arcade machine. They probably will expect to see a cheap LED display like we had as kids. Minds will be blown to see a real screen and fully functioning game. As someone who spent a lot of time around the classics, I have seen a few of them serviced and was always awed by the size and complexity of the motherboards to play these games. To see them totally shrunk down to pocket size is mind blowing.While aging eyes may have a problem with the focus and subdued graphic detail, it's an arcade machine in your pocket for crying out loud. Classic fun.

  This is the closest I'll be, to be able to get to owning my own arcade in my home.,
Posted By:

Coming from someone who loved going to arcades back in the 1980's with only $5, this really brought back some great memories that can never be made again. All I know, I wasn't too happy about the size when I saw these on the store (I almost didn't buy them), but once I saw it in my room, OMG, I was super extremely happy to have a Pac-Man cabinet (albeit small) in my house!This is the closest I'll be, to be able to get to owning my own arcade in my home. I honestly wish they would have went just a couple inches larger, but no other company has been able to replicate Pac-Man or any arcade game port proper.The other thing I wish this had, was the glass cover with the artwork that went over the screen, the artwork that was on the joystick table, & the coin slot.The last thing I wish this had was the correct cabinet shape for each game and correct joystick positions. All of these Tiny Arcade cabinets look identical, something only a few arcade games were like back in the day.Despite the size, identical cabinet shape, and some missing artwork, this really bought back some wonderful memories. Also, I didn't think it could happen, but my heart warmed up with joyfulness. It's like that smell that brings back good memories of a great time you had.Please make more arcade ported versions! I want a complete arcade!Asteroids (with a trackball please)Centipede (with a trackball please)Super PacManFroggerMr. Do!Mr. Do's CastleBurger TimeDonkey KongDonkey Kong Jr.Donkey Kong 3and more! more! more! now!:)

  Controls Work, But Version Feels Inauthentic and Speeded Up,
Posted By:

Having played Galaxian many times and achieved a high score, I'm frustrated with this "tiny" version. The joystick and buttons are quite responsive, but I feel I'm playing a speeded-up version of the game. For example, iIn the regular arcade game, you don't get killed by flying bombs unless they hit you directly. Here, just being to the left or right of one is enough to get you blown up. This might be due to a design flaw that compromised the game to fit a much smaller screen, but whatever the case, it sucks. It's too easy to get killed over and over again, within the space of a few seconds, and it's hard to get an extended play out of it, unless you keep hitting "reset.".So while it's a neat little conversation piece, I'm already bored with it since there's no way to apply any real skill to the game. I haven't tried the other ones, but it's discouraging.

Gave this as a Christmas gift to my sons, 29 & 35, thinking they'd probably think it was kind of silly but they used to love Pac-Man, so I figured why not? They loved it, especially when they realized it works. Just remember you'll need to buy batteries because the ones it comes with are for trying it out and won't last long. Long story short, I think it's one of those fun, retro type gifts anyone can enjoy....even if they never played the game in the past. The only thing we all agreed on, probably not the most convenient key chain, which it can be used for as well.

A real arcade cabinet shrunk down to almost unusable size, it's a lot of fun to play and brings back memories of wasting my life away is arcades of yore. They really should have added a few more cents to the end product and put the colored film over to screen to reproduce the authentic colors of old.Pros:Good EmulationCabinet and design is pretty closeFun to playCons:Loud, It really needs a volume controlMissing the color screen overlay to really amp up the nostalgia.A bit too small. A slightly bigger screen and controls would be nice.

  Looks great, sounds great, plays not-so-great.,
Posted By:

Top marks for the re-creation of the gaming cabinet style. Being so small, it isn't really playable long-term, just as a mild diversion. By virtue of the size of the joysticks, missed turns are common, exacerbated by not being able to see the screen well past your own fingers.The biggest problem I've encountered, and this is true of the Pac Man version as well, is the software seems buggy. At the end of the first level, with two ghosts still waiting to return to the playing field, they just stay there, trapped, while the two other ghosts set up into holding patterns around two of the remaining power dots. Even putting myself right in their path won't get them to chase me - they just stay stuck in that pattern. While it looks like a faithful rendering, something is odd about the software implementation of the game that ruins the experience. As a result, they're really just nice looking little knick-knacks for my desk.

Posted By:

I had to get one of these since Pacman was big back in my day. I already knew it was super small and tiny and controlling it wasn't going to be easy so I won't give bad reviews for those. I had to play the game with my glasses removed...because I needed a very up close view of the screen! It is tricky to manipulate the tiny joystick, but once you play it long enough, you will get the hang of it. Ghosts move slow, that's ok, you can play longer! I scored 40,500 on my first game out of the box. It's something I won't play marathon games on, looks nice displayed. It's a curiosity object and would surprise people to know that it actually plays the game. Once in a while I'll play a game for fun. I wish in this case the joystick was centered on the console and the buttons on either side. That way both left & right handers can feel comfortable with it. What's nice is the original artwork for the side panels and front panel are like the original game. Sound is ok. The siren background sound remains constant throughout the maze, doesn't increase in pitch the more dots you eat. Has a keychain attached, but I wouldn't attach keys to it though and haul it around, could get dinged up and possibly broken.

As the other Tiny Arcades, this have gorgeous decals and an overall charm. Also is quite small for its price.Nevertheless the game itself is a dissapointment, since its frame rate's around 10 fps at the best. Ms Pacman used to play better than the original title, but not in this case. If you're looking for one ob these tiny gabinets, pick up Space Invaders instead.

  Add this fun, 3.5" Ms. Pac-Man to your Tiny Arcade Collection.,
Posted By:

This Ms. Pac-Man Tiny Arcade Cabinet is sturdy and has the look of the arcade and the authentic sounds as well, with full color and contrast on a screen that resembles the arcade original, which are all very important qualities, so you don't feel like you're playing an NES port version or a low quality knock off, but I'd say 99% similar to the arcade original with 1% off for the tiny size required to fit into the screen as well as the only flaw, the ghosts move slower and not as smoothly as in the arcade version, so the game is on the easy side, which I honestly don't mind considering how tiny the game is. Even so, it's very playable and the tiny size is a major part of its appeal. The ghost AI patterns aren't as aggressive overall.Ms. Pac-Man has the main levels, including my favorite level with the aqua blue maze.I find it easy to play with the left thumb, which controls Ms. Pac-Man really well. The controls are tight and responsive, so I feel 100% in control of Ms. Pac-Man as she moves through the maze. Like the original, it also includes the cutscenes with music. Again, this sounds like the authentic arcade original. The sound is of critical importance, and though the speaker is small, this game nails it.I'm very impressed by this Tiny Arcade series, and putting these next to each other, side by side in the dark, it looks and sounds like you shrunk the arcade cabinets down to about 3.5 inches tall.Amazing. I hope we get Dig Dug and other classic arcade games soon from Tiny Arcade series. I'd like to see Jungle Hunt, Donkey Kong Jr. Donkey Kong, Joust, etc.

Awesome little toy, hasn't broken yet,which honestly surprises me. I figured a joystick that small wouldn't last a day, but I can tell they thought of that during design, the itsy bitsy joystick seems really sturdy. Looks to be a good clone of the original ROM. The only complaint I have is the same as most others, there's no volume control or mute switch. And while it's probably something to do with the speaker they use, rather than the ROM itself, when the flying saucer goes across the top of the screen, it sounds about 100x louder than all the other sounds. Some foam sticky tape over the speaker virtually mutes all sounds except for that flying saucer. I'll probably end up taking it apart and cutting the speaker wire altogether so I can play it without the entire office knowing.

This game is actually a keychain. The dimensions were not listed so I took a gamble when other reviews said it was small. I thought it would be about 4-5 inches tall, maybe stand on a desk top as a novelty item. This thing is only about 2 inches tall, would get lost on any desk. It's definitely not worth $20-25. For the size, a fair price is half that. Disappointed. Cute if you know it's just a keychain.

Very nice, everything seems original but I noticed some flaws, the game looks original but it is more a conversion adapted to the small screen, the movements are a little snappy and the resolution is very bad, the sound is inconplete after pac-man has swallowed the super pill, if you turn off the highest score is reset, much better that of space invaders that I recommend to everyone, a real gemI forgot, the image of the screen on this page is deceptive, shows a perfect resolution but in reality it is not so, it is not even present the score of the second player, bad system to convince customers that I consider dishonest

Great novelty, completely operational and appears to be running the exact Galaxian arcade code. Pretty playable too despite the small size, but wouldn't recommend it for playing as the screen is very small and it would be difficult to operate over long periods of time, but as a novelty, something to put up on the shelf for display and occasional demonstration, it can't be beat. I'm very happy with the product and would recommend it to others.

This is a neat little toy. It is not tough so don't drop it or sit on it. The screen is a bit too dim to play the game. The sound is not the real sounds but it's close. There is no "attract mode" as I had hoped. The screen is far too small to see the weapons fire from the aliens so avoiding death is not an option. It's a neat plastic toy barely worth $20.I hear the ROMs for Ms Pacman and Asteroids are all inside this box. All you need to do is wire in a switch to play them. I plan to do this!

  Love this little arcade game - just like the original, except miniaturized!,
Posted By:

I got this for my son for Christmas, but it never made it that long - it was too tempting, so it got opened and played incessantly. It's a huge hit with anyone who comes to visit, and at a recent party, it was passed around from person to person. Everyone wanted to play it!It appears to be running the actual arcade ROM - gameplay, sounds, everything is exactly like the arcade game. Even the top lights up! It's cute, playable and fun. AND it comes with batteries included and installed! How many electronic devices come with batteries anymore?

The decals, the screen and controls are quite nice; it's a quality product, but a little expensive for it size. It should be as big as a cellphone in order to be an awesome collective, instead of a extra cool keychain.

The game inside of this toy is fully playable although some people saying it is not. There are two modes: Demo and Play. Pressing middle button right after turn on the power switch behind starts the fully functional game.

  Overall an amazingly accurate recreation of the original game; not perfect but great for the money,
Posted By:

I recently decided to give this mini Pac-Man game a try. I am an old-school child of the 80s, and I have a full-sized arcade machine of Pac Man, so I am well aware of how the real game plays. This little game is darned close to the original, and overall is an amazing and fun little device for the money. And when I say little, I mean it is less than 4 inches tall and literally has a key-ring on the back (but I removed that as it really is too big to serve as a keyring, but just realize that the buttons and joystick on this thing are tiny, but they do work). Note that there are several 1 star reviews; most of these are unhappy about the small size, but the dimensions are in the description of the product (and again, part of the appeal IS the small size).What I love:- The game is recreated (or mostly likely just ported) over accurately, including the levels, different "fruits" on different levels, and even the cut screens.- The screen is very bright and sharp; the resolution could be a little better, but it is so tiny that overall it looks great and very much like the actual arcade version.- The cabinet design is nice and colorful; even when the machine is off it makes a nice little conversation piece.- It uses 3 AAA batteries that are accessible and replaceable from the back by removing one screw, so this unit in theory should last a very long time if treated gently.- Despite the tiny size, it really is playable!However, it isn't perfect, so if you are an arcade snob or perfectionist, here are a few issues:- Playability is good, but the game play feels slightly slower than the original on earlier levels, and much slower on the more advanced levels. I can play this game almost indefinitely without dying.- High scores are not stored after you turn off the game.- Joystick placement is not consistent with the original game (but now we are really nitpicking).- Volume is not adjustable and there is no "mute" (makes it tough to play in the office!).But overall it is a neat little collectible and a perfect gift for anyone who loves arcade games from the 80s; again, this is an amazing little device for the money.

  It looks cool, it works, but the software isn't as authentic as I'd like,
Posted By:

I've been playing video games for most of my 38 years. I grew up on arcade games and still love them today. (In fact, I still go to arcades regularly, mostly for current Japanese music games.)I also happen to love tiny electronics. From Raspberry Pi to 11-inch laptops to tiny arcade games. Oh, hey, what's this Tiny Arcade thing? Sounds like it was made for me, right?Whether you will love Tiny Arcade Ms. Pac-Man or not depends on why you're buying it. If you're looking for a display piece, it's pretty good. The artwork on the cabinet is very authentic and is very close to the original artwork. The only art that is missing is the art around the screen. The cabinet is well-designed; there is no mystery as to what it is. I'll definitely be putting it in my display case.But the main reason I wanted this was because I was hoping for an authentic version of Ms. Pac-Man that also happened to be super tiny. It's been about 20 years since the first arcade emulators were created, and we've come a long way in both emulation and miniature computer technology. Unfortunately, the version of Ms. Pac-Man included here is NOT an emulation, but a reprogramming. As such, it differs from the original version in a number of ways, some being more subtle than others.The thing is, the rules of the game remain the same. If you knew what to do in the arcade version, you know what to do here. And I'm willing to bet that a lot of people won't realize that the ghost behavior is different, or that the character speeds are different, or that the sound effects for the ghosts being eaten and the eyes travelling are the sounds from Pac-Man and not Ms. Pac-Man, or that the ghosts warp from outside the ghost house into the ghost house. A lot of folks won't be able to tell the difference, and will just think that this is the same as the original arcade game, and I don't blame them; not everyone is as much of a video game geek as I am. But if you are as much of a video game geek as I am, you may be disappointed in the software.So, I guess I recommend this if you like tiny electronics, if you like the Pac-Man style of gameplay, and if you aren't too picky about the particulars of this version of the game. If you need everything to be 100% the same as the original, then you'll want to skip this one.

Cool to have a fully functional Ms PacMan arcade game on a keychain! The display is tiny but the game is the real deal. Also, the joystick is super small so it's a bit of a challenge to play the game (hope the joystick doesn't break off anytime soon).

For the people saying that the game isn't fully functional and that the joystick doesn't work: read the instructions! The first few lines say that the game comes shipped in its Demo mode, which can be deactivated once you open it- the game is fully-operational, looks great, and made a great Christmas gift!

Very cool. It is small and the frame rate isn't perfect, but it is definitely playable and a lot of fun. Being a middle-age arcade fan this brings back lots of memories. Accurately depicts all the mazes and cut scenes. The ghost's patterns and general IQ are a little different than I remember. A great gift for any old-school arcade fan. I wish the joystick was a tad bigger so my finger didn't keep slipping off.

Pros:Playable version of Space Invaders.Decent Screen.Light up MarqueeThis one game actually has all 4 games inside. Just de-solder and move the 0 ohm resistor (link) to switch games (or install a 4-way switch).D = Space Invaders, C = Galaxian, B = Pac Man, A = Ms Pac Man. Note: If none of the links are connected it boots into a test mode.Cons:Graphics are scaled down and, while recognizable, are not rendered quite as they are in the arcade.Seems to be a custom version of the game and doesn't properly follow the arcade version (for example: speed up is wrong, and single invader sound is wrong)SI plays okay, but other games are choppy or slow. Galaxian isn't too bad, but both pacs have really choppy moving ghosts.

Posted By:

It is not 100% identical to the arcade game but it is pretty close for what it is. There are minor differences but for a small novelty item it is surprisingly good and does play well. It is a full color true bitmapped LCD screen and not pre-defined shapes like some others similar to this. The frame rate is a bit choppy but doesn't impact play-ability much. Buy all 4 and have your own micro arcade room. These are probably the best micro arcade games at the moment.

  Fantastic little piece of nostalgia, that actually works!,
Posted By:

These little guys are awesome. They remind me of the Pac-Man and Galaga "keepsake ornaments" that Hallmark put out a few years ago - they're about the same size - except that these have a real screen and are actually playable!The marquee lights up, the screen is clear and bright, and the game plays pretty well, despite the minuscule controls.They actually work and the joystick has a decent feel to it.As far as the game itself goes, the gameplay as reasonably authentic, as are (most of) the sound effects and bits of music. It's not a 100% perfect emulation, but at this size that hardly matters. They've even included the attract-mode title screen that introduces the ghosts and Ms. Pac-Man.It's a great little collector's novelty item for arcade lovers of the past. My only gripe - and it's a minor one - is that the game shuts off after only 20 seconds of inactivity. It would be nice to be able to keep it on longer as it really looks cool when it's on, and makes a great head-turning desktop toy.

I picked this up at Cracker Barrel for $19.99 and I gotta say I'm completely blown away... this isn't a static LCD display... no... this is the same type of screen they use on iWatches... only it plays the full Space Invaders game just like it was in the arcade! God I hope they come out with all the games I grew up playing in my childhood! This is by far the COOLEST thing I've bought in a very long time!! GRAB ONE! You won't regret it! Can't recommend this enough!
