GP32 Game Park

Retro-Game's favourite alternative to the GBA has got to be the GP32 from Gamepark. Its main advantages are the built in usb port and use of standard Smart media cards as used in digital cameras. This mean programming for it is a relatively simple and cheap.

Release 02 Feb 2002

This handheld from Korea is more that a match for the GBA. It has in its favour the released SDK, USB and use of standard smart media cards. These especially should make programming for it relatively simple. Expect Emulators and home brew games to start appearing. There are already some programming examples availble. Future releases also look promising with Breath of Fire 3, Street Fighter Zero 3 and Rockman X5 from Capcom, Fire Pro Wrestling from Spike, and King of Fighters from SNK

The GP32 is roughly the same size as a gameboy advance. The screen is slightly larger at 3.5" but (like the GBA) needs to be viewed at the correct angle and in good light. It takes 2 AA batteries with a quoted lifetime of 12 Hours. Basically the ideal platform for video game freaks, developers and collectors alike.

MegaMan X5

Capcom Megaman X5 on GP32, its good to see some quality developers making games for it, looking forward to this one being released.

GP32 SNES Emulator

Heres a picture of SNES9XGP running on the GP32, it has been ported by Intelecto. Its still in an early beta version with no sound and its running a bit slow but with a bit of optimisation to do its looking good so far.
