After furiously refreshing the tracking page for a few days, I got my Arduboy last week! Unfortunately, customs decided to hold it ransom and charged me £13.79 to collect it. With the black Friday discount, I ended up paying slightly more than a UK store at £48.59 total. Still, after getting my hands on it, it’s well worth it!
As an electronics enthusiast and lover of all things retro gaming, this thing ticks all my boxes! It looks stunning (packaging was pretty great too!), and those buttons. I can feel the work that has gone into them, and easily comparable to the finest handheld consoles.
I’ve loaded a handful of games on to it so far, just to get a general feel, and I’m very impressed! I could keep going on and on, but beautiful work! I couldn’t have dreamed a finished product better myself.
I had already been scrolling through Erwin’s collection for some time, so it was really good to see the games properly. The first couple of times I had to upload the game twice with Arduboy uploader, but it was no issue really.
I’ve ordered a credit/ID card case from Israel, which is taking it’s time getting here, but looks to be perfect for the Arduboy. I’ll be sure to get some pics when it arrives, and then I’ll feel much better taking it out and about wherever I go!
