What does £20 get you nowadays? A ticket to the cinema and a snack maybe. That only covers your ticket though, so if you want to bring a friend they’d better be paying. And whilst seeing a film is great fun, alone or otherwise, it’s only a couple of hours of entertainment, and then what? You’ve lost your £20 and you need to find something else to do.

What if we told you that you could play 240 16-bit video games with an easy-to-use joystick, on a colourful 2.5-inch screen, with built-in speakers, all for under — yes under — £20? You can now relive the ’80s by playing classic games on the Thumbs Up miniature retro arcade game machine for £17.10, down from £24.99.

What’s great about this mini arcade machine is the massive range of playable video games. With 240 to choose from, you’ll be kept entertained for far longer than the average film lasts, and you can make as much noise as you like. 

With 67% of customers on Amazon giving this arcade machine a five-star rating, it’s clearly a popular option. Ms Laura praised the machine, saying: 

“Bought this for my son’s 9th birthday and he loves it. Well worth every penny and works like a charm. Handy for taking on holiday, car, plane and train journeys. Highly recommend for the price.”

You’ll be hard-pressed to find better entertainment for under £20.
