Its cartridge-based design enables plenty of expandability for a reasonable price.Tom's Guide70Evercade reviewIf you’re nostalgic for old-school, cartridge-based handhelds and want an easy, affordable way to experience some of your favorite classics again, the Evercade is worth a look. Just don’t expect the highest-fidelity experience, or a perfect roster of games.Gizmodo80Evercade Simplifies Retro Gaming and I'm Surprised How Much I Love ItI initially though the simplicity of the Evercade would turn me off the hardware, but after spending some time working through countless games, it’s the exact opposite. Like the consoles of yesteryear, you just slap in a cartridge and it works; no fuss, no muss, and no having to experiment with confusing emulator tweaks to try and make a game playable.Eurogamer90The cartridge-based retro handheld that worksIn the case of the Evercade, the core hardware is well-made and very nicely priced, so I can definitely see the system finding an audience - and I hope that it does.The Verge90Evercade is a slick gaming handheld that shows why cartridges are still coolI’ve downloaded plenty of classic games on Steam and the Switch, but I can’t say I spend a lot of time playing them. I’m usually distracted by the latest release or getting in a few more games of Fortnite. But with the Evercade, these distractions are gone: the classics have all of my attention.Nintendo Life80A throwback to the good old days of the Game BoyEvercade is a solid platform, then; while we can't imagine it's going to be a mainstream system which will sell tens of millions of units like the Switch, it's appealing enough to surely sell in the modest numbers required to build a fairly robust audience and thereby attract the attention of other publishers who are keen to monetise their back catalogues in physical rather than digital form.
