Ooh, Atari. The word alone is enough to send shivers down the spine. So all you gaming geeks should be doing cartwheels when we tell you that smarty pants boffins have miniaturized Atari's iconic VCS joystick and paddle, attached keychains and preloaded them with classic games. Unbelievable!
If you've got a nostalgic bone in your body you should already have hit the Buy button. If you haven't you're probably still reeling at the thought of dangling a self-contained retro-gaming system from your belt. Okay, you still need to plug these über cool gizmos into a TV but we're sure you can manage that. Simply pop one end of the supplied cable (which is on a separate battery-powered reel) into the joystick/paddle and stick the jack end in your TV. Simple.
There are three different Atari Keychains to collect, and each one contains at least two spectacularly enthralling games:
Joystick 1 Games:
Joystick 2 Games:
Plug your Atari Keychain into the TV
Impressed? You will be the second you plug your Atari Keychain into the TV because you'll be transfixed by a toenail-chewingly addictive barrage of blocky graphics, blip bloppy jingles and glorious gameplay. It's like the last twenty five years never happened. And let's face it, anyone old enough to remember the early days of video gaming looks back on Atari's thumb-numbing controllers with blister-tinged affection.
Cool retro packaging
These sleek, take-anywhere danglers would be great even if they didn't contain games. But they do, and we guarantee the memories will come flooding back the second you start fiddling. You might even be tempted to pull on a pair of polyester slacks and grow a mullet. But you'll never find out unless you get ordering. Remember: old legends don't die, they just get smaller.
Each keychain comes with a separate pocket size reel that holds six feet of cord and RCA jacks (included).
Games are single player only.
Joystick approximately 5cm (H) x 4cm (W) x 4.5cm (D)
Paddle approximately 4cm (H) x 4cm (W) x 6.5cm (D)
