Games and music

More than 200 handhelds are on show. Marvel at among others the Atari Lynx, Sega Game Gear, five generations of Game Boys, Bandai WonderSwan, and the Neo Geo Pocket. There's a Game Boy demo stand and you can even buy charms in the shape of your favorite handheld. You'd rather just play? Go crazy on the vintage and modern arcade machines, consoles, interactive installations and the newly developed Smoke Pong and Room Racers. The eclectic Gameboymusicclub from Vienna will be providing some chirpy 8bit tunes.
