“In side by side comparisons, I found the Emulation Quality is extremely high.”

“ Insert a cart and it loads up super quick with a slick menu design that is easy to navigate.”

“Again, it sounds very accurate to the original game running on real hardware.”

“A throwback to the good old days of the Game Boy”

“ The face buttons have a nice amount of travel and are very responsive, while the D-Pad is fantastic – it’s clearly been modelled after the Sega Saturn’s lush rolling pad, and is a joy to use.”

“For those of you who grew up in the ’90s and fondly recall the thrill of investing in chunky plastic cartridges for your Game Boy or Game Gear, the Evercade scratches an itch we didn’t know needed scratching.”

– Damien McFerran – Nintendo Life


“With such a vast library of games available to plunder, there are enough hidden gems and rarities to keep something like the Evercade going for a long time.”

“ …it’s well-built and looks the part.”

” For retro fans it’s a direct connection to the good old days: Popping open a new game, holding something physical that you can display.”

– James Trew – Engadget

“Do I love Evercade? Yes…”

“….the screen is excellent and, above all, the emulation convinces practically all along the line”

“as a cute out-of-the-box system at a good price with a lot of collecting charm for the carts, the Evercade is a real winner.”

– Martin Woger, editor-in-chief, (translated)

“This is a quality piece of kit that both surprises with how accomplished it looks and, more importantly, feels in hand.”

“The Evercade has a bright, crisp and sharp 480×272 screen that’s much closer to a Vita’s level of colour and zest than, say, the more muted nature of a DS display.”

“If you have a place in your heart still for the games of your (’80s and ’90s) childhood – or you’re curious about gaming’s heritage, its arcade classics and inspirational releases, and want a neat new platform to try them out on at your play-anywhere convenience – the Evercade is warmly recommended.”

– Mike Diver, Lad Bible

“The first impression when you take in hand the Evercade is very good: the hardened plastic shell seems solid and does not crack under the fingers, while the ergonomics of the whole proves very convincing.”

“… offering a format consistent with its philosophy, good handling and convincing manufacturing quality.”

The result is a beautiful object and a series of cartridges that can proudly take pride of place on your shelf.

“Like any handheld it all comes down to the gameplay. The Evercade plays games incredibly well, with zero, and we mean zero problems, frame rate drops or screen tearing is non existent.”

“Every cartridge, and every game has run flawlessly on the Evercade. ”

“We didn’t know how much we missed opening a box, reading the manual and preparing ourselves to take on the end boss of a game until we started reviewing the Evercade.”
