There are lots of ways to play retro style arcade games on your TV these days, but most of them are a little big to carry with you everywhere. This little gadget from across the Pacific lets you play 108 different 8-bit games on your TV, and it’s small enough to fit in your pocket.

The tiny, battery powered TV Game 100 Plus (version 2) plugs into the composite video and one of the RCA audio jacks on your TV, and provides you with a veritable crapton of arcade action. As awesome as it sounds, it’s got one major drawback. It doesn’t play a single game you’ve ever heard of. Packed with titles like Fruitdish, Hexapod War, First Defender and Surfg Sport, I’m not sure what you can expect in terms of gameplay quality.

You can check out video of a couple of the games on this thing in the video below. Most of them seem like low-grade clones of popular arcade titles like Space Invaders and Arkanoid.

The TV Game 100 Plus also is single player only – so make that a second major drawback. Still, for just $12.90(USD), it’s one of those cheap curiosities you might just have to pick up for the heck of it. If you want one head on over to Strapya World, where you can grab one in either white or red.
