If you want to revisit all your favorite games from your youth, there are plenty of options out there ranging from pre-packaged hardware systems to ROMs. Nothing really nails the nostalgia factor like the offerings from Analogue that use modern hardware to play your old cartridges in better than original glory. They’re adding to their lineup with Pocket, a modern Game Boy clone that does so much more than the original. For starters, it’s built around a 3.5″ 615 ppi LCD screen with 1600×1440 resolution which is 10x the resolution of the original Game Boy. It also has pro level color accuracy, dynamic range and brightness, so it’s safe to say it’s the most advanced portable video game system display yet. What’s more, it doesn’t stop at Game Boy, Game Boy Color and Game Boy Advance cartridge functionality. It also plays (with cartridge adapters) Game Gear, Neo Geo Pocket Color and Atari Lynx games. Oh yeah, and they also built in a digital audio workstation with synthesize and sequencer so you’ll have plenty to do when you’re not crushing Tetris. Analogue Pocket will be released sometime in 2020, so you plenty of time to dig up all your old cartridges before it comes out.

Moon-Puzzle-IF2

We pride ourselves on being able to tackle problems and jigsaw puzzles like everyone else–from the edge pieces in. That’s a little more difficult when it comes to thousand piece adventures like the Moon puzzle you see here. In is out, out is in, and there’s an entire quadrant of almost fully gray pieces that depict the lunar surface, but all of that just adds to the productive difficulty you’ll experience when you’re assembling this jigsaw version of modern history. As they tell it, “July 16, 2019 marked the 50 year anniversary of the Apollo 11 launch – the historic mission to the Moon where Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first of humankind to set foot on the Moon. Our Moon puzzle celebrates this momentous achievement and will challenge and delight puzzle solvers everywhere.”
