Pocket Pad plays games with our MP3s

Anything with Ecco the Dolphin involved is an instant favourite here at Stuff. While it may have been the hardest game ever created, it made our young minds feel free, like creatures of the sea.

Today we’re not so easily pleased. Ecco alone isn’t enough to satisfy our game related cravings. Luckily, then, this Pocket Pad not only features the intrepid sea mammal but also a 1GB MP3 player and nine other retro Sega classics – including no fewer than three Sonic games.

It’s got an iPod-esque 2.4in LCD, and a TV-out jack means you can opt for big screen action via your telly. In case you fill up the 1GB flash memory, it’s backed up with an SD slot, which will let you button bash to Sonic Spinball at the same time as listening to The Kooks.
