Hyperkins RetroN 1 HD= NES Gaming
« on: April 07, 2019, 10:12:35 AM »
Okay I bit the bullet. After such a positive experience with the Hyperkin Mega Retron I just had to pick up the NES console. And I am very pleased with my purchase. Been trying NES games all week.


Very small console. I already had the game carts. Both of these carts and the console equals great gaming in a very small package. And it is an added plus just to be able to power this from my TV's USB. What an awesome idea.

I had to try it. I tried Rad Racer 2 and this is the first clone console that I have had which will boot the game. Even though the graphics has its issues, I was still able to play the game. Road scrolled toward me and I was able to maneuver around the other vehicles.


I understand that it will play Castlevania 3 with no problems. I do not have that game..............................yet.  ;)

@retro junkie This looks really cool... the console design is very nice!  Good post, Retro!

So... is there something to the Castlevania 3 comment?  I mean... is there another device that it doesn't work on? Or is it just because of graphics issues of the Hyperkin itself?   I'm probably out of touch on some of this..


LOL.. Rad Racer 2... man... blast from the past.   We used to play Rad Racer ALL the time.   You could switch songs by hitting down.  ;D

Castlevania 3 has been a troublesome game for clone systems. Only recently has there been a breakthrough. Most still cannot play the game. There are about 23 games in the NES library that clone systems will not boot, or play. Castlevania 3 has been on that list as is Rad Racer 2, and my Gauntlet. My Gauntlet game will boot, but the graphics are rearranged in the first board. You cannot finish that board because of that.

Clone systems have been backward engineered to mimic the original hardware. They are not perfect and they do not necessarily play the games perfectly . But I find it interesting just how close they are getting. These latest Hyperkin consoles are great for the budget minded gamer wanting their retro gaming on an HD TV. They offer the best option for those who can't afford the more expensive route. You just have to overlook that maybe some sound effects might be in a higher pitch, music a little off, graphics might be a different tint, or completely different colors. But the game still plays the same.
