    It’s all in the name: an arcade so itty-bitty it fits in the palm of your hand. The Tiny Arcade by TinyCircuits puts the “fun” in “functional,” giving you a miniature that doesn’t just imitate a life-sized machine but performs as one too. Enjoy classic video games on this fully-functioning mini arcade wherever and whenever you want. Whether you are looking to recreate your childhood memories or make new ones, the Tiny Arcade is simple to build and simple to use.

    The Tiny Arcade is structured just like a full-sized arcade. It has a color screen, a joystick, a built-in speaker, a battery a USB port, and a microSD expansion slot. Any microSD card can be used to load games or videos on the Tiny Arcade, but purchasing one is recommended. Three games are pre-loaded on the Tiny Arcade, and a whole slew of throwbacks can be downloaded completely free from our site. If you’re looking to exercise your programming skills, you can develop your own games to play on the Tiny Arcade and share in the TinyCircuits community.

    In addition to providing hours of non-stop game play, the Tiny Arcade can also be used to watch videos. Any MP4 file can be converted to the TinyScreen format of the Tiny Arcade. Use the free tool to convert the files, load them on the microSD card, and insert it in the Tiny Arcade for a tiny movie experience.

    Don’t know what all that means? Doesn’t matter. Order the Tiny Arcade, and you’ll be playing Tiny Asteroids from the comfort of your own home in the palm of your own hand within minutes of opening the box!

    Had loads of fun putting this together and loading/playing games

    Worked great, packaged well, good instructions


    Great kit, eye strain was worth it, but the acrylic cracked a little as the pieces had to fit together perfectly.


    Building a card house with a full deck is easier than this thing. Because the only pieces that are notched for a snug fit are the display and joystick board it is impossible to get both sides to 'snap' together no matter how much tape you use because ther


    Wonderful! My brother LOVED it!


    Tiny, yet cute. It is something that will make you think of lego for some time untill you make it whole, then you can start programming. Fun! Also, it is actually a working console! :D
