Atari Flashback 2

 

Many moons ago, when personal computers were a pipe dream and the Internet was nary a gleam in anyone's eye, we were playing video games at the arcade, and if we were lucky, at home, too. We had consoles with names like Intellivision, Coleco Telstar,...

Affordable. A faithful, loving rendering of the original Atari 2600. Forty games and multiple levels.

Some programming bugs in games. Useless monochrome mode.

You may not have been born in the sixties, seventies, or even eighties, but a trip back in the world of console gaming is still a worthwhile diversion.

How it is, and how it should be."

 

Not sure whether its worth the price, but it is a piece of modern era classics. And, yes in pros: is a full list of games. Make the choice yourself. Bought this for my son that has a low age requirement and doesn't know what Atari was. :)
