Description

Before releasing the OneStation in 2006, Chinese company Jungletac had released some generic handhelds with built-in games already. The OneStation (pictured here is the European version „Freakz" released by German company MGT) is Jungletacs most ambitious system, with games sold separately on cartridge, often being combined on „20 in 1“ cartridges. The games are 8- and 16-bit clones - some well done, and others rather crappy. Although they sometimes remind of well known games, this is not a clone-system which justifies it to be shown here. Futhermore, the technology of the OneStation is quite impressive. With a housing reminding of a Game Boy Micro, the screen and sound are surprisingly clear and even better than the ones of big manufacturers. Apart from that, I read that the system functions as a controller & screen, while the microprocessors are found on the cartridges. Jungletacs hardware range is rather broad and confusing, with only few relevant systems for us retro-collectors. However, I really think about buying the JungleTac Vii, a strange cartridge-based console reminding of Nintendos Wii.
