The 500IN1,FC Console, or Retro FC are a series of handheld Famiclones somewhat built off of the SupGameBox, designed to look like a Nintendo Game Boy. They claim to have 500 games built into them, but the system actually has around 290-300 games. They cost $4 from the supplier themselves, with Amazon listings having some sort of markup. Other manufacturers on Alibaba make similar consoles. They are most likely developed by TouchGamePlayer.

Hardware[]

The system is designed to look like a Nintendo Game Boy, but has X and Y buttons, as well as a Reset button to access the menu. On the Bestop model, the X and A buttons are actually turbo buttons, with A controlling Turbo A, and X controlling Turbo B. The Y button is mapped to B and the B button is mapped to A. There are no options to change the button map. The system has an NES-on-a-chip and a Samsung 816 semiconductor. The display is 2.4 inches. Instead of batteries, the system operates off of a BL-5C camera battery, and uses a MicroUSB B charger. The controller also plugs in the port as well.

The system is also capable of projecting to a TV, through a 3.5mm port.

Software[]

The system has 290 games installed. You cannot add anymore, as it runs on a NOAC with a multicart ROM. The game count is almost identical to the Game Box.
