The PowKiddy RGB30 is a surprising device. With a 4-inch, 1:1 (square) aspect ratio and 720×720 resolution, it scales a number of retro systems extremely well, making it a real contender for classic systems. It’s quickly becoming my favorite device for many systems: GB/GBC, NES, SNES, GBA, Pico-8, and vertical arcade games.

This was a review unit sent to me by the manufacturer. All opinions are my own, they did not see this review ahead of time, and no money was exchanged in any way.
