The Rabbit Engineering Model G2 allows you to play any 8-bit Atari 2600/VCS cartridge in style with either an arcade-spec joystick and buttons, or an analog paddle controller. The Model G2 is powered by the Atari Flashback 2, and includes 40 built-in games (no cartridge required to play).
Dave at Rabbit Engineering is such a creative force to be reckoned with! I am the proud owner of his first G2 system. I saw his G1 and knew I had to have it for the Atari 2600 so I asked him if he could adapt it. He designed much of the interface from scratch within two weeks. He then delivered on time as promised even in spite of some initial design hurdles. I would definitely buy from Dave again, and recommend this G2 system to all Atari 2600 lovers out there! I'm very much contemplating buying his G1 now! :-)
The Model G2 was designed using open-source constructive-scene geometry modelling software. The design files consist of 5672 lines of code, which describe the internal and external structure of the machine. This geometry is interpreted by the 3D printer and laser cutter which produce the parts, which are made from two environmentally friendly materials - 3D printed polylactic acid (PLA) plastic and oak-faced plywood. This use of computer controlled tools ensures that each Model G2, even though hand-assembled, is produced to the same high standards.
The Model G2 ships with the following games built in (no cartridge required to play):
