Really! Wouldn't that be a lot more work than using an existing emulator, a la Activision Anthology (where your name appears in the credits, I noticed!), even for a few (20) games?

I'll put up a review on AtariAge once I get my hands on one.

I look forward to it!

I'm buying one also, if only because, well, it does have a few great games on it . . . I suspect Famiclone-on-a-chip, though. . . Just like all the rest. Well, actually, aren't the Namco/Sega sticks Genesis-on-a-chip, really? Seems like it'd be easier to make a TV Boy clone. . .
