- Compatible with Raspberry Pi Zero or Zero W
- High Quality
Play retro games on the go with the Retroflag GPi case which is based on the classic Gameboy DMG design. Measuring at 135*81*32mm, it is a little smaller and a little lighter at 178g. It is the perfect size and more comfortable to hold for extended periods of time than other handhelds. It is powered by a Raspberry Pi Zero W for the best speed vs size performance for retro gaming on Raspberry Pi.
The display is a 2.8 inch 320x240 backlit LCD which is ideal for retro gaming. The GPi display is large, bright and colourful. And, unlike the original Gameboy you do not have to sit under a light to see the screen! It is the ideal retro console with games!
There is a great D-Pad and four gaming buttons (as well as Start and Select) on the front of the case, and located on the back are two shoulder buttons. This gives the best compatibility with a range of classic gaming systems while not detracting from the case design of the retro games handheld.
Keeping with tradition the GPi case is powered by three AAA batteries, or you can use the supplied USB cable with your mobile charger or a phone power bank.
The Retroflag GPi retro gaming handheld can run compatible Micro SD Card images such as RetroPie with games, Lakka & Recalbox builds (all 3 are compared here).The RetroPie runs systems from the 70’s up to the 2000’s.
Please note that some systems are not fully supported and as such some games may not run at full performance. These may be improved in future updates to the software.

Love it! Works perfectly - thanks again!
Great portable gaming. I bought a 3d printed pi zero kit before this. Whilst I enjoy tinkering and soldering, the finished kit was clunky compared to this. Straight out of the box it feels great, looks great. Insert the pi zero, image an SD and you're good to go. With decent rechargeable batteries it lasts ages. It's infinitely customisable via retropie themes etc. There are several prebuilt images which include the display mode you need to make the zero output to the screen instead of the hdmi and the safe shutdown script you also need, retroboy being an excellent one. Most SNES, NES, Sega genesis, megadrive, mame4all and mame2003 games run great that I've tested. Easy access to the SD card means it's no problem trying out different images. The only thing I'd add would be usb access so you could plug in a cheap keyboard to aid the setup a little, even if it were a micro usb. Apparently there is a way to use a keyboard but you need to power the GPi via a powered usb plugged in to the micro SD in the battery compartment. I don't have one so can't confirm this. Otherwise it's spot on, really great replaying all the classics on the go.
Spot on. Went for the fully loaded version and i am not disappointed. Has the shutdown script already loaded plus lots of games. I could of built one myself but the pi zero w is not available anywhere at the moment and i wanted something to take the boredom out of this lockdown. Really impressed. Thanks Droix.
RETROFLAG GPi Case Handheld
After watching and reading most of the reviews of this case , i still wasn't prepared for just how good this little case is. The screen is incredibly clear, the speaker surprisingly good and the controsl so far are fautless. get your Pi Zero or Zero W reday with an image, gety soem AA batteries and enjoy the retro fun.
I purchased from DroiX as i have purchased other devices in the past and never been let down with speed of delivery and the helpful forums.
