    What Is the Tiny Arcade?

    We're old school arcade lovers here - there is nothing quite like the experience of playing a game on an arcade cabinet.  We've created Tiny Arcade to let you experience that feeling anywhere, by shrinking an arcade cabinet to just a few inches tall.  

    The Tiny Arcade lets you experience many retro type games which can be downloaded completely free from our site or any number of others that create games for the Tiny Arcade.  You can also play videos on the Tiny Arcade at 30 FPS with audio.

    Actual gameplay videos captured from the Tiny Arcade

    The Tiny Arcade is based around TinyCircuits, a modular Arduino compatible platform the size of a quarter which stack together like electronic LEGOs.  There is an analog joystick and two push buttons for playing the games, a built in speaker for playing audio, a Lithium battery, built in USB for charging (and reprogramming), and a microSD expansion slot.  

    Even though the Tiny Arcade is built around the Arduino platform - don't worry if you're not a programmer, there is no need to download any special software or do any soldering with the Tiny Arcade, you can use it without any special knowledge. 

    microSD Game Expansion

    The Tiny Arcade can load games on the fly off a microSD card, a menu is provided at power up that shows a preview of all of the games available on the microSD card, choose one and it gets loaded in a second and you're playing away.  No need to reprogram the Tiny Arcade over USB.  

    You can get a preloaded microSD card with the current games and some videos here

    Video Player

    Watch videos and movies on your Tiny Arcade.  Convert any MP4 movie using a free utility to the TinyScreen format, put them on a microSD card, plug in and watch your videos (with sound!).

      Kit Contents

      The Tiny Arcade is simple to put together - there is no soldering needed, or any special tools.  The circuit boards fit together and the acrylic cases assemble like a jigsaw puzzle with no glue needed.  It only takes about 10 minutes to assemble a Tiny Arcade.  Check out the assembly instructions here.  

      The Kit Includes:

      • OLED screen board
      • Tiny Arcade processor board
      • Arcade Case Pieces (either Clear or Black Acrylic)
      • Lithium-Polymer rechargeable battery
      • A Sticker sheet of arcade artwork to add to the outside of the cabinet if you wish



      The Tiny Arcade is only as good as the games it supports, and out of the box there are plenty to get you going.  Like Flappy Birds, Tiny Invaders (by Eike Decker), Asteroids, Tiny Outrun (by Jon Wingrove).   And being open source, we look forward to community members developing and releasing their own games as well.
