    Love It

    Posted by Will on Aug 25th 2023

    Games load up fast with no issues. The form factor is so perfect it even fits in my protective cases for gba carts. I use this in my gameboy player and the black matches nicely. The micro sd can be a little tricky to eject but not a huge deal. Overall, really happy with my purchase.

    Great cart with great battery life

    Posted by Shakes on Apr 15th 2022

    This is the one to get if you game on your GBA, as the AA batteries can use all the help they can get. This cart is much better on battery than my EZFlash, which makes this my go to when traveling. No save states on the X5, but of course it still supports all regular game saves. Great cart!

    Everdrive GBA X5 Mini

    Posted by Luis Melendez on Dec 8th 2021

    The best way to play classic games on the go without having to carry a ton of carts. I also enjoy playing rom hacks on original hardware with this. Very simple to use and set-up. Worth the price.

    Good features, good form-factor, and good handheld

    Posted by AJ on Nov 23rd 2021

    The GBA had a fairly short life, but managed to get a lot of unforgettable games and series released for it. The variety of games for the console cater to everyone, but most noteworthy there are a lot of phenomenal RPGs and platformers. As for the Everdrive itself, it’s got amazing build quality, it fits flush into the console, and as far as I’m concerned has 100% compatibility. There are a few games that have specialized hardware like Wario Ware Twisted, and Drilldozer that won’t work as the original cartridge does due to the lack of gyroscope/rumble pack. This can be side stepped somewhat via romhacks though. If you’re interested at all in the GBA, this is a must. Also modding original wide mode GBA for IPS displays and rechargeable batteries is a blast.

    Had an original everdrive gba. Decided to buy a new one and some for my friends. Absolutely love them. Just kinda wish they were a little cheaper. But for the price they are they are well worth the money.

    Worth every penny. Very happy with my purchase! Can’t wait to use it with the Analogue Pocket! They will go together like cookies and milk.

    Krikzz Quality

    Posted by Scott R. on Sep 14th 2021

    I love it. I haven't run into any GBA games that don't play as expected. I messed around with the Game Boy and NES emulators and was pretty pleased. It may be worth noting that NES games look kind of squashed due to the NES using a higher resolution than the GBA--definitely not the Everdrive's fault, but don't expect a perfect portable NES experience.
