A Microdose Of Retro Games

World's Smallest Atari 2600
Super Impulse USA (2021)
This little Atari 2600 was given to me as a Christmas present and I love everything about it.  Even the package is awesome, with wood paneling and shag carpeting design of the package, to the three inch tall console television that's wired to an even smaller Atari 2600 console with a joystick.  The screen is only an 1.25 inches, but it's crystal clear.

There are ten games installed onto the unit: Asteroids, Breakout, Centipede, Combat, Millipede, Missile Command, Pac Man, Pong, Tempest, and Warlords.  I'm pretty sure that they're not all Atari 2600 roms, but whether they are or whether they're ports that were designed specifically for this unit, each game plays well and is surprisingly easy to control with such a small controller.  It might even be more responsive than a real 2600 joystick.  It's not going to replace the RetroPie any time soon, but it's a lot of fun!
