Bacteria Gives Life to Mutant Mini Multi Arcade System

by Paul Strauss

I have a dream. And that dream is that one day a single portable gaming console can play all of my favorite arcade classics (on a decent sized screen). Thanks to a modder going by the name “Bacteria”, that day is today.

Bacteria Mini Multi Arcade System

Bacteria’s Mini Multi Arcade system mashes up a bunch of those TV plug ‘n play game systems and crams them all into interchangeable cartridges (OK, some of these are more like small bricks) that can be plugged into a single portable.

Instead of the crummy “joystick” that most of those Plug ‘N Play systems use, Bacteria replaced those with a far more usable D-pad controller instead. All games are played on a nice 5.4″ diagonal LCD screen, and the system can play for up to 4.5 hours at a time, thanks to a pair of 2000mA heavy duty Li-ion batteries. And in case Bacteria wants to play the games on a bigger screen, there’s video and audio outputs for connecting to a TV.

The system currently plays a number of classic arcade games ranging from Pac-Man to Galaxian to Dig Dug to Space Invaders and QIX. It can also play a ton of NES games and will soon be able to handle GBA cartridges as well. So far Bacteria has made up about 15 or 20 of his unique multi-game cartridges, and plans on making more real soon.

While I know you could probably achieve a similar result with a software emulator, there’s something innately satisfying about cramming all this physical hardware together to make something that actually works.

    My friend has made something a little bigger that plays 60 classic arcade games. It’s about 2 feet tall, and I’ll be posting an entry about it next week, unfortunately don’t have the pictures up yet.

    This item is intriguing though, for the ability to do NES games. If The Black Bass is in there, I want one!!!! :)
