I recieved a NEO GEO POCKET COLOUR for my birthday in March and have been stuck on it since. It has outstanding colour and graphics for a console its size and great sound too. Many of the games are identical to the Mega Drive but considering the size and weight the Neo Geo Pocket Colour comes out above the mega drive any day. I currently own all three game boys, All three Nintendos, a playstation, dreamcast and game gear so I know a good console when I see one. This is a must buy and an essential for travelling or long journeys.

NEOGEO. This faithful pocket-sized reproduction of the early-80s arcade classic offers instant gratification for those who want to gobble up some spare time. Unfortunately, the joystick on this portable unit doesn't respond extremely well on sharp turns, which can be the kiss of death when you're being chased by those pesky ghosts Pinky, Inky, Blinky or Clyde. Play takes place in full-screen or scroll modes. Scroll mode poses more of a challenge as you can see only one corner of the board at all times, which can make it hard to avoid ghosts. It may not be as advanced as many other titles for the NEOGEO, but nothing beats the addictive arcade action of Pac-Man. If you are looking for a game to just pick up and play, snatch up this title. It's still as much fun as when you first played it at the arcade all those years ago. --Carrie Bell Pros: Retains all the charm and excitement of the original arcade classic One of the best games for short spurts of gameplay Safe for all ages Cons: Joystick response is weak on sharp turns No new additions to the original version
The pressure is on. You have lots of streets to paint in a short time. To make matters ... more
worse, you are being chased by monsters and little Pokémon-esque characters who have the bad habit of leaving paw prints all over your fresh paint. Since the goal of this game is to paint everything in sight, these distractions can make it a challenge to brush through an entire level. At its simplest, Crush Roller is basically a variation on the old-school arcade hit Pac-Man. But instead of eating power dots to make monsters vulnerable, you simply run them over with randomly placed rollers. Play by yourself or against a friend and try to beat your score and time on levels you've already cleared in the trial mode. Or view fun facts about the creatures that you've captured. It can get a tad redundant as each level looks pretty similar, and the joystick doesn't always respond to turn commands. --Carrie Bell Pros: A clever variation on the Pac-Man theme Fun for children and adults alike Can play against a friend with similar gaming system and a NEOGEO Pocket Link Cable (sold separately) Cons: Too animated and cute for fans of edgier games Joystick response is weak at times
