I confess. I like Plug n Play units. Perhaps its something about having a bunch of console or arcade games from my childhood all packed into a single joystick. They also seem to be one of my most popular review features on my channel.  So I decided to make a thread highlighting them, in case you enjoy them too.

 

I'll start with a unit I just got from a trade here on the forums from Rowsdower!

It's the Namco Pac-Man TV Games unit by Jakks Pacific:

I too love these things.  They are inexpensive and fun.

Well, great.  Now I have to watch ALL the plug and play reviews.  Bye bye afternoon productivity.

PnP's are great & you touched on their charm ... their colorful design & pretty accurate gameplay

 

if you see these games in an arcade don't pass them by ...

 

Bosconian plays better in the arcade because of the 8 way joystick as opposed to the 4 way joystick on this unit  you'll see in  attract mode ship moving diagonally as it should be able to.  

 

I had toyed with the idea of finding a way to eliminate "the re-stricter plate" on the inside but didn't want to destroy my unit.

Here's the first one I did for the Ms Pac Man Plug n Play

(Being one of my earlier episodes, I was still trying to find my groove)

Am I the only one that thinks the "bad" reviews are the most fun to watch?  The Coleco review is classic.

the review wasn't bad , just the games were bad .... & the names were NOT changed to protect the innocent

 

I hadn't ever tried the coleco one myself ...it just looked bad ... but it was certainly better than it looked by the review ... 

 

so great job on all PnP's I have seen so far :thumb:

yeah this thing is great family fun ...

 

I got this the same time I got my Vectrex & after setting that up I was testing out the PnP when some of my nephews arrived

 

we played the PNP for hours & my Vectrex got very little attention :unsure: 

 

instead of playing like they do on the TV show with a courteous clap as the wheel spins , they will chant "Bankrupt - Lose a Turn" hoping the get the control of the wheel. :rofl:

 

the gold colored one you mentioned near the end of the video get's rid of the "D-pad".  letter selection is done with the wheel that spins left & right.

And here the Space Invaders Retro Arcade, which should catch me up on the old ones.

I hope to have an Activision Plug n Play review done in the next week or so.

Do you have the Atari Paddle plug and play?  I like that one a lot.
