Introduction

The Legends Arcade Family of AtGames presents the Legends Gamer Mini, a smaller version of the Pro dual fightstick. The Mini is a wireless arcade stick that comes with 100 games, including Tetris and Space Invaders, but it can also be used as a standalone arcade stick. Its runtime is five hours.

Performance

The joystick and buttons are good, but do not expect anything Sanwa quality. In fact, due to its microswitch technology, you may struggle registering diagonal inputs in some games, but if you come across such an issue, a firmware update can hopefully solve the problem.

As for the arcade stick’s weight, it is built like a tank, and it is big, so it is heavy. Thus, we recommend placing it on a desk or table instead of your lap as it may cut off circulation.

Hardware

The Mini has USB support as well as HDMI, 2.4 GHz wifi, ethernet, and Bluetooth support. You can access ArcadeNet and BYOG. The arcade stick also comes with a rechargeable battery.

The secondary buttons at your disposal are:

  1. Power
  2. Connection indicator
  3. Battery indicator
  4. Joystick
  5. Rewind
  6. Home/menu
  7. Start
  8. Control bus
  9. USB port
  10. DC power port

There is also a streaming arcade console that has a pairing button, reset button, USB port, micro USB port, HDMI port, and ethernet port. The following are also included:

  • 5 ft USB AC adapter
  • 5 ft USB charging & data cable
  • 1 ft HDMI cable

We wish the HDMI cable was longer. Otherwise, it is highly appreciated that the parts, namely the joystick and buttons, are swappable if you are interested in an upgrade.

Appearance

The Mini definitely sports a more old school look, but the end result is quite appealing to the eye. In fact, the magical accomplishment that AtGames managed to pull off is that the arcade stick can still blend in if other contemporary arcade sticks are in the same room!

Conclusion

The Legend Gamers Mini is a decent arcade stick if you are looking to have some old school PC fun.
