    Obviously, it needs a fishing game.

    I don’t care how bonkers it looks/sounds, if it’s got HL3 as one of those twelve games, I’m buying in.

    Given the limited control options and the microscopic b&w screen the games are inevitably going to be limited in their scope to the point where they have to compete with all the free stuff on sites like itch.io, newgrounds etc...

    Except those sites don't charge £118 (+vat) for a plastic trinket to enter and don't limit your selection to 12 a week.

    Can the crank be used to power the thing?

    Is it only me that thinks it looks like the bas... illegitimate love-child of a 3½ FDD & a Game-Boy™...?

    So it's gambling on the hardware level ? I really can't see it being a winner if you don't even know what games you can play.
