Released in 2015, Recalbox is an operating system well known to gamers who still enjoy “old” games. Free and open source, this software is developed by a team of passionate developers and it is easily installed on Raspberry Pi for cheap use. Recalbox supports more than a hundred systems, in an interface that is intended to be as easy as possible to use.
After the software, Recalbox continues its development with a hardware announcement! The OS is indeed integrated into the two new portable consoles from HardKernel, the Odroid Go Advance and Odroid Go Super. Looking a bit like Nintendo’s Switch Lite, these two devices benefit from the careful support of Recalbox, with a new start-up assistant, a sleep mode, native management of the volume and brightness buttons as well as the headphone jack.
The Odroid Go Super offers a 5-inch (848 x 480) TFT display and works with a quad-core Cortex-A35 processor clocked at 1.3 GHz, 1 GB of RAM and a battery with a capacity of 4,000 mAh. A mini-jack port, an SD slot, a USB-A port, a USB-C port for charging complete the technical sheet. The USB-A port is used to connect a Wi-Fi dongle because the console does not integrate this function by default.
The Odroid Go Advance is a “ do it yourself »Of the console, it is supplied in spare parts! Technically, we find the same processor as well as Wi-Fi support, but its screen is smaller (3.4 inches, 480 x 320). The price is not the same either: 89 € for this model, against 119 € for the Go Super.
If Recalbox allows you to install its own ROMs, the operating system also offers its own games! It has thus acquired the rights to nearly 150 independent games, which are available for free: KUBO3 (an NES game developed by a creator aged… 7!), Twin Dragons (Broke Studio), Micro Images (Morphcat Games), Papi Commando (Studio Vetea), Bass Def (Omaké Games)…
I hope you are in health and well.
