      Finally an FPGA with support Review by Kickman
    Shipping Time
    Love love love it, I restored a rock-ola Nibbler using the BitKit with original WG2600 CRT monitor and it worked flawless! The menu system is fantastic and I can navigate it with original dedicated controls. There is the possibility of expansion with additional slots with in the menu which means the possibility of support for new things to come in the future. Another feature i’ve yet to use but excited about is the high score leader board feature threw an application program.

    There is to much greatness about this FPGA!! 5 stars,

    This is an amazing video game board, easy to navigate menu, and perfect recreation of the original play experiences of some very fun classic games. If you want to play Nibbler this is the PCB for you! Where MAME leaves off, FPGA is able to pick up with that original hardware feel.
