but I havn't found much. I'm trying to find out if the games(probably all NES clones) are decent. Maybe there's even a place I can find it cheaper? Reading about it on Wikipedia, one of the games on it, supposedly is Adventure Island, but with Blue's Journey graphics...that's what interested me the most.

Got it yesterday. Not too shabby for a knockoff. Comes with 6 built in games. The first is some kind of cutesy sidescolling Falcomish hack n' slash. I don't recognize any of the gfx. The 2nd is some kind of Daisenpu/194X type game. The 3rd is some kind of Flintstonish game, you swing a club, & can grab onto ledges. I'll assume alot of most of it is taken from some NES Flintstone game, the houses scream Flintstones. The 4th is a combination of Blue's Journey/Rayguy & Adventure Island 3. Basically, take the gfx/levels of AI3, & the main character from Rayguy along with his attacks, & there you have it. The 5th is a Contra styled game. The only gfx I deffinitly recognize however is a helicoptor from Metal Slug in one of the later levels. You seem to be only capable of having a regular gun, machine gun, & spread. The 6th game is some kind of Tricky Kick styled game, I don't recognize any of the gfx.
What's wierd, is that you can choose any of the levels of these 6 games from the menu. Some gfx stand out as being waaaaay better then other gfx, it's a mish mash for sure. The D-pad sucks a duck. It makes the games more difficult then they should be, plus, if you're pushing up alot(like in the hack n slash) you can easily hit the select button which reboots the system to the main menu. Also, while the music is all relatively decent sounding NES stuff, the sounds are all samples, screams, explosions, you name it! Oh & the frame rate in most of the games is fairly bad as well.
Now it also comes with a cartridge with more games on it, which are seemingly straight rips of NES game. Most of them have an alternate name in the main menu & the REAL name of the game at their respective title screens. USA Gladiators is American Gladiators, 160 Nuyumon is some kind of Othello looking game, completely in Chinese(I assume), F-1 Hero 2 is is some kind of Final Lap clone, Debias is side scroling action RPG with sounds that try to sound like music, Bar is I guess a gambling game but I can't get it to work, Tower of Druag is...........Tower of Druaga(I assume it's the NES version), 1937's Mission is Alpha Mission, The Future 2 is Back to the Future 2 & 3 in english, Yoshi is Yoshi(maybe it was called Yoshi's Cookie in the US??), & wonder of wonders, Rolling Thunder is Rolling Thunder! They didn't even bother to take out Tengen from the title screen!
So, that's about it. If you have any questions, shoot. I was going to try to do a half assed video but there's just too many games to take a video of. Also, it's supposed to be an MP3 player I think, but, I don't see any way you could transfer MP3's to it, which I was hoping for, making it less of a waste, but, oh well.
