A preinstalled 32GB SD CARD and Raspberry Pi Zero W running Retropie packed with over 11,000 retro games

There is a great D-pad and four gaming buttons on the front, to the rear are two shoulder buttons, playable completely offline but with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth built in for online play and connecting external controllers or audio devices, it will be sure to bring back many memories and much more fun for years to come as you re-live the golden age of gaming.

Play retro games on the go with the Retroflag GPi case which is based on the classic Gameboy DMG design. Measuring at 135*81*32mm it is a little smaller and a little lighter at 178g. It is the perfect size and more comfortable to hold for extended periods of time than other handhelds. It is powered by a Raspberry Pi Zero W for the best speed vs size performance for retro gaming on Raspberry Pi.

The display is a 2.8 inch 320×240 backlit LCD which is ideal for retro gaming. The GPi display is large, bright and colourful. And, unlike the original Gameboy you do not have to sit under a light to see the screen! It is the ideal retro console with games!
