Overpriced

I wouldn’t mind spending $10 on this app but when you have websites like PriceCharting that are FREE it makes this app useless.

Can’t even play

So I got this app and guess what? All it does is show games instead of playing them and that’s the whole reason of games. Do not buy this you will get 0 games from it

When it works it great

The two biggest flaws in this app are that it does not separate Gameboy and gameboy color games and I have to delete and redownload it every couple weeks because it stops loading. I am working on completing the GBC library and it’s a pain not having a separate GBC tab. There should also be a download all button.

Love from a longtime fan

I've had these apps since they were individual and love them. Especially NES. Would request a few more apps, like PS2, and a way to turn off PAL games from the NES listing. Great apps highly recommended!

The Ultimate Gamers Dream App

This app is the best collectors app out there. It nails every aspect you need in order to get the most out of your gaming collection. On top of that their customer support is amazing. I had an issue where the app was crashing and they fixed it within 2 days. This is the greatest app I have ever downloaded and paid for.

Great app no matter your collection size

As a novice video game collector relative to others, I realized that I still needed a way to keep track of my inventory. I have a broad collection of about 350 games across 20 different retro systems and could not track it all easily. It is also great to view all the other game out there I wasn’t even aware of. When out shopping, I can easily pull up the app and view my collection. If I see something I want to buy, I have an idea of what the game is worth in the market. Additionally, the game art makes it so great to show friends and family. It is like I am taking them directly to my game shelves and showing off what I have. Lastly, the support I received when having issues connecting between devices was quick and friendly. They easily identified my issue and was able to resolve my problem. If you are looking for a great, fun way to monitor and show off your collection- it is definitely worth the investment! I’m looking forward to additional systems being added in the future. Thank you!

Updated to 4 stars

I paid to unlock all systems. The app is very handy when out shopping. I have used it many times for a quick rarity and price check. I cannot go five stars because it uses its own sync system, not iCloud, does not offer box art sync, and requires a [free] web account for sync using a privacy policy with a few holes in it. But otherwise, provides great usefulness. Btw I contacted support regarding an issue and they were very responsive and supportive, and actually quickly released an update to the app to fix the issue.

This is my favorite game collection app! But, I’m still hoping they add PSP 😊

Great design, but there are issues...

Update: looks like the database is getting updated in a big way...they’ve added Colecovision and Intellivision! That’s an extra star from me in the ratings. Add the other 5 Atari systems and the Vectrex and they will have a 5 star app on their hands! Pros: Overall, the design of the app is excellent. It is a great way to keep up the value of your collection. I like how you can keep track of boxes and manuals as well. Cons: The pie chart shows the percentages of the two largest collections and then has a third section for all other systems. I’d like to see a detailed breakdown. If you add games that are not listed in a system, the values never come up. No home brew game support. This app is great for Nintendo fans, but retro gaming actually starts ten years earlier. Other than the Atari 2600, there is no support for any other systems from the late 70s/early 80s. Despite promises over the past couple of years to add them in, we’re still waiting for this to happen.
