- 2.8 inch IPS screen (a bright and colourful screen that brings plenty of life to retro games)
- Safe Shutdown
- Onboard speaker & volume adjust
- 3.5mm audio port
- USB cable for direct power (to play without batteries)
- 3x AA battery holder for remote power (batteries not included)
- LED power indicator

What makes GPI stand out in the crowd is the support for Raspberry Pi Zero. Highly configurable and chances are that most people have a spare Pi Zero eagerly awaiting another project.
There's a range of distro's that would work, though RetroPie is our pick of the bunch. Here is a step by step guide for setup. Of note:
- On step 8, be sure to download RetroPie version "Raspberry Pi 0/1"
