Pac-Man Mini Portable: Get in My Pocket!

Check out this pocket game system which plays arcade games including Pac-Man and several other classic Namco games.

Pac-Man Mini Portable by Sam Thornley

Created by modder Sam Thornley, the portable Pac-Man Mini console gets its brains from one of those Jakks Pacific Namco Arcade Classic systems, seamlessly melded with a tiny 2.5-inch LCD display and powered by a set of 4 rechargeable AA batteries for easy travel.

While the screenshot photos below look a bit blurry, Sam assures us that the screen is actually very sharp thanks to a direct composite video connection to the Jakks circuit.

Besides Pac-Man, the chunky portable system can play Galaxian, Rally-X, Bosconian, and my personal arcade version of crack, Dig Dug.

The only thing left out of the portable console is a sound system. That’s because those Namco “arcade on a chip” systems that run those Jakks systems don’t offer the exact same sounds that the original versions played, and Sam is clearly an arcade purist.

Sure, I suppose Sam could have just gone an grabbed a copy of Namco Museum for the Nintendo DS, GBA or Sony PSP, but what fun would that have been?
