In continuation of the company’s modern revision of classic video game consoles, Analogue brings the Analogue Pocket, a beautiful handheld that pays an incredible homage to the Game Boy. Analogue’s portable is more than just a remake, though, as it has many features that excite any retro gamer. The Analogue Pocket gives its users three different options to play games on it, even if the games are not initially from a handheld.

The first option is utilizing the Pocket’s cartridge slot, allowing you to play your physical Game Boy, Game Boy Color, and Game Boy Advance games, just like you would on the original handhelds. Analogue bolsters the cartridge route even further by selling additional cartridge adapters that allow the use of Game Gear, TurboGrafx-16 HuCards, Neo Geo Pocket, and Atari Lynx cartridges. The Pocket makes playing incredibly easy for anyone with a massive library of handheld games. These games look especially great on the high-quality LCD screen of the Analogue Pocket, which is one of the clearest displays I’ve seen on a handheld device in quite some time. In what I would consider a “hybrid” route, handheld console flash carts also work perfectly on the Analogue Pocket.

From the moment he touched an Intellivision controller in 1985, Mike knew that he had experienced something incredible in the world of video games that would shape him for the rest of his life. From that point forward, he would make it his mission to experience video games from every console generation going forward. Eventually, he would become obsessed with magazines that wrote about the games he loved, and it would inspire him to start writing about games himself in 1998 for various local media outlets. Always looking for an opportunity to branch out, Mike eventually coded the foundation of a website that would ultimately morph into Gamer Logic Dot Net, an independent video game site that continues to cover modern and classic video game today. Additional, Mike composes music for indie games under his other alias "Unleaded Logic"
