GOT ONE!" I have the rare 16-bit Neo Geo Pocket Color by SNK and it's a pretty cool little machine here. It's
just as small and portable as the Gameboy Color and the GameBoy
Advance at 130mm (w) x 80mm (h) x 30.5mm (d) and it also
takes two AA batteries only. Unlike the Gameboy Neo Geo PC has some really
amazing features like a build in calendar, a horoscope, a silent alarm,
and worldwide time check and more! The system is very useful on the go to say the least
but there is even more great things about the Neo Geo PC like it's clear
picture, great controls, and a library of over 50 games too.
The Neo Geo PC has the unique feature of being better lit unlike the Gameboy(s)
for a much clearer screen, so you don't have to screw around with system
has much just so that you can even see it. Cool, eh? The max amount of
colours on screen is 146 out of 4096 which is nearly triple of the Gameboy
Color. So if this portable system is so great, why isn't it on the market
still you ask? The reason why it isn't in stores anymore is because SNK
recalled ALL North American units on the Spring of 2000 because of the
company's financial problems .................. WHICH ABSOLUTELY STINKS!
Fortunately import games like Rock Man World and Cotton
will work on the North American units if that helps any? Sadly with the
original SNK stepping out of the video game business you'll see NO
new games for NGPC in the future at all. A real shame because I liked their games and machines over the years and the Neo Geo PC is no
exception. Anyway back to the system here. The Neo Geo PC is also unique for using a more Analog-like
control stick instead of a standard digital pad which is another find
example of SNK's
I got my Neo Geo PC with Sega's very own Sonic the Hedgehog packed
in and man, is it good! It's looks like the old Game Gear versions
but better, plus there's way more to do thanks to the loads of options.
I highly recommend getting it if you find the system. If there's any down side to Sonic on Neo
Geo PC, it's that the graphics are not has good as the Sega
Genesis versions despite the 16-bit processor and the sound
effect aren't not the best either. Still a fantastic game though. Don't
forget other unique games The Match of the Millennium: SNK vs. Capcom,
which is also for this little system, it also plays very well. There are
some boring games for the Neo Geo PC like Dive Alert and Neo21
to be careful of though.
Bottomline: Get it while you can!
"I can't recommend this system enough! It's one of the most underrated
game systems in gaming history and it doesn't deserve to be so overlooked.
Some of these great systems are still selling on eBay and other gaming
websites for next to nothing if you look hard enough so they are still
around. If you do manage to find one you won't be disappointed.
Rating: 70/100 the rating nose drives because
of the lack of new games. Still Recommend however.
Find this system on eBay here!
Rare Scale: 5/10 expect this score to go up
in a few years. Maybe Ebay can still help you out.
