Upcoming Retro Android Game: Contra Returns (July 26 Release)


I'm semi-interested in checking out Contra Returns when it releases on Monday although it does appear to potentially be a F2P cash grab style game. Pre-registration does net you some extra items to get you going. The game is also releasing on iOS. 

It looks like this game adds to the arcade/console classic with an updated look, online multiplayer options, new characters, many new weapons, new story lines and has 200 levels. That all sounds great but from what I can tell, the extra characters and weapons will possibly be part of a micro-transaction scheme so my hopes aren't real high but it's Contra so I'm still checking it out. It does look good! 



From PROXIMA BETA:

Contra Returns is a classic side scrolling shooter game

Remember the secret code: Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, B, A to get extra lives? After a 30-year hiatus, the Contra you know and love is back!

Miyoo P60: Upcoming Handheld I'm Interested In The Most

 Update: As of August 1 2022, the Miyoo P60 appears to still be delayed due to software testing issues according to Miyoo... There are quite a few handhelds still coming out this year, but none have my interest as much as the Miyoo P60 due to pocketability and Miyoo's dedication to improving their products.  Prior to the Miyoo Mini, I didn't have a lot of confidence in products that Miyoo was involved in like the PocketGo S30 and BittBoy handhelds, but they've proven they are invested in supporting their products with the Mini which has drastically improved since the day it released.  While a lot of companies like Anbernic  have products that have crept up into premium level pricing, the P60 looks to be headed towards budget pricing and will likely compete with the Retroid Pocket 2 Plus and Retroid Pocket 3.    We've been talking about the P60 for a while now too. It seems the delay in release has to do with Miyoo ironing out some software issues which is honestly great

New KT-R1C Photos (Posted by Lei on Discord)

 It looks like the KT-R1C is getting closer and closer to finally becoming real. According to Lei on the RGHANDHELDS.COM Discord, the approximate weight for the metal variety will be around 320g. I would have preferred Stacked Shoulders myself but this might still be a pretty awesome pocketable option!  When it becomes available for pre-order, more info should appear on their site:  https://ktr.la/shop Below are some new production images of the handheld assembled with an aluminum shell (colors are not final):

Review: Retroid Pocket 2 Plus (RP2+) (Retro Game Handheld)

Retroid Pocket 2 Plus $99 Retroid Pocket 2 Plus (RP2+) Initial Review Model: Indigo (GameCube Inspired) Pre-Ordered: 10/30/2021 Shipped: 12/16/2021 Received: 1/5/2022 Initial Review: 1/12/2022 Price Paid: $99 + Shipping  GoRetroid.com Overall Initial Score: 9.3/10 (A) (Price Weighted Very Heavily with all Grades). I plan to revisit this review within a couple months with further findings and as new options become available for the device. This is an initial review based on one long week of heavy use. In the realm of "budget" handhelds, the RP2+ now officially replaces the Anbernic RG351V as my favorite budget option. The 351V was my favorite for the vast majority of 2021. It will be very tough to beat the value of the RP2+ in 2022.  The Good 👍Significantly improved Saturn, Dreamcast, DS & N64 Performance!! 👍Improved Buttons 👍Drastically Improved Firmware/UI 👍No More Retroid OS 👍Setup Is Easy The Bad 👎Right Slider Is Awful 👎Screen Is "Meh" In
