“The Arduboy looks like a tiny knockoff Game Boy —and in a lot of ways, that's exactly what it is.

“Create your own games, learn to program or download from a library of open source games for free”
that’s the promise of Arduboy.” - Elecktor

and B buttons are located below the display.” - Geek
“The Arduboy Classic is actually using the case, button and LCD screen from a classic Game Boy.

Arduboy is awesome! I've never done coding before and thought I should have a go. I think this is designed for novices so it was a great starting point. I made my first Hello, world! and ran through some other tutorials on the community hub. The games are fun too, but you can only have one thing on the device at a time, which is fine and I knew this buying into it. The quality and fit and finish is good. I'm excited to learn more and try my hand at something I design myself into the future. I'm also keen to share this with my four-year old son who I think will enjoy the games too. Great purchase, and really quick shipping. :)
My review of pakronics
Pretty good, easy to navigate website
Awesome take on gameboy
Bought this for my brother who has just started getting into game development and has always loved retro game systems, so perfect gift for him. Designed really well and easy to use.
My experience was excellent. I was very happy with the processing times. packaging, and the pricing on my order and shipping. This was reflected by the fact I made the effort to ring them to let them know how pleased I was. I would happily shop with Pakronics again in the future. :D
