Hmm, quite cool. I do sort of like the novelty of everything being based on the screen vram, where I imagine certain things work very well, even if obligatory blitting of *everything* seems cycle intensive for tile and sprites stuff. The game Polar Parcel looks particularly well done to me:

That's pretty cool! I see a few Gamebuino games have been ported over as well.

Pokitto already surfaced here (this topic), anyway, it is definitely a neat little handheld, nice showcase. Maybe I will also pick up some ARM programming by looking into that (although I am not really fond of C++, but still, the idea and realization of this thing just looks very solid). Hopefully it picks up, it would be a great thing if some such minimalistic game console (and electronics tinkering device, reminds me to some creative uses of the original GameBoy) was around and active!
