I will make some PCBs for TinyBoy (super small ATtiny85 mini game handheld)
but new version with dpad (4 buttons) and one fire or with mini joystick.
And maybe audio jack as audio out connector.
Let me know if you one ore some more TinyBoy PCBs...
Also I will make nintendo keychain/sega vmu like 3D printed case for it...

And what is TinyBoy?

Was this featured on Hackaday?
First thing i noticed was the OLED display, maybe you should look in to getting this one with better resolution and with 1:1 ratio.

Its 96x96px. Same SSDxx driver.

Hey this is really neat there is enough resources to have some interesting gameplay on. Probably I will build one at some point since it's a novel open source console in it's own right. I would think a reasonable version of Sokoban could be created for it pretty easily.

I do not see any place the PLL for 16mhz off internal timer is enabled which seems strange to me. Perhaps it does not work with a 3v power supply at that speed, but what about another coin battery or just a small 5v LiPo? I guess there is something to be said for 8mhz running a game but 16mhz is in spec for the part with proper voltage so why not. The extra clocks would probably help a lot on pixel fill. That UFO escape and Breakout games looks pretty nice.

Ah yes, the Attiny...pretty sure I could have done a very minimalist console some long time ago with basic NTSC mono output. But without a MUL instruction it was, well, meh...not worth the hassle. :| But very nice to couple it to a simple lcd screen, at least technically it`s easy to have color. Way cooler would be to connect a ESP8266 straight to a LCD and make a cheap-ass but powerful networked console. :ugeek:

This thing would actually make a great modern Game and Watch for the games only requiring 2 buttons..
