The Evercade console has recently launched and allows players to use game cartridges similar to the early NES system. The console has a 4.3″ screen (the same as a PSP) and TV output, so players can either play it as a handheld or on a larger screen.
Recently, Evercade has announced the addition of two cartridges to their library. The games contain a total of 23 licensed games from Jaleco and Piko Interactive, bringing the total number of games available on the console to 183. All of the titles can be played either on the handheld or connected to a tv using the HDMI output.
So far there are 14 other cartridges available. The cartridges contain content from known publishers and developers such as Atari, Interplay, Mega Cat, Songbird Interactive, Technos, Data East, and Namco Museum. The games are all fully licensed.

In City Connection you must drive along on roads, painting them a different color. When you have all the roads painted, you go on to the next level.
