4. Playing Classic Console Games > Retro-Hack the GP32

Retro-Hack the GP32

Use the Korean handheld marvel to play retro games and other bizarre amusements.

In the early years of the 21st century, a Korean company decided to try something a little different in the handheld arena. As gamers went about their business, they were scrutinized and studied, as Gamepark slowly and surely drew its plans against us. The fruit of Gamepark’s loins? The GP32 handheld, a 320 x 240 pixel monster with a 32-bit ARM9 RISC CPU, 8-MB SDRAM, and up to 128MB of storage memory on a normal SMC smart media memory card, with data transferred from any PC using USB.

The advantages of such an open system for the GP32 are obvious in terms of homebrew content, and Gaming Hacks, the previous book in the hacks series that dealt with, well, gaming hacks, has a hack devoted to cool things you can do with the GP32, from running alternate operating systems to notable emulators—even overclocking it. But honestly, that book’s hack just scraped the surface, especially in the retro arena—the fact is that there’s much more you can do with your GP32, especially with the plethora of new software coming out for it.
