The A500 Mini is a miniature dedicated video game console by Retro Games.

It was released worldwide on August 13, 2021. It was designed to resemble the Amiga 500 computer, although the keyboard keys on the case are non-functional.

It comes with a two-button USB mouse and an eight-button USB gamepad. A USB keyboard can also be attached to load the games, or a virtual keyboard can be used via the gamepad. Games are selected via the carousel menu system.


The A500 Mini contains twenty-five built-in games. It uses the Amiberry emulator by Blitter Studio to run the games.

The power is provided by a standard mini USB plug and wall adapter, and the video is output through HDMI.

Technical specifications

The system is much more powerful than the system on which it was designed.

It uses an Allwinner H6 SoC (system on a chip). The system specifications are as follows:

Since it uses common architecture, the system can be modified to add additional games, simply using the supplied mini-USB cable and open source software.
