Retro Game Collector

D. Hill

Retro Game Collector is a video game database that is tailored to game enthusiasts who have large collections, are looking to acquire large collections or are interested in the retro market. The app allows users to analyze their game collection in a number of ways and acts as a shopping list for ones you still want to add to your collection. The app is easy to use with a full game catalog purchase menu or the ability to display content based on a particular gaming system from the main menu. When navigating a particular system menu it is easy to add data or view all the titles every released for that platform. The app gives you two unlocked system platforms from the start, the 32X and Virtual Boy, but users have to pay for the rest. It is smart for the developers to unlock these because the customers are more likely to pay for the others such as the NES, SNES, to be unlocked. I find the prices to unlock a platform or multiple platforms to be a bit too high especially when some other apps have databases you can view for free but you still get a lot of functionality here. Retro Game Collector is worth a download as a managing tool and reference point for games of the past.

Excellent for a Collector


I love this app! Bought each console collection prior to them making it a single app. Everything easily transferred to the new platform. With a collection around 1700+ games on available on the consoles shown (I have more games for other consoles not available), this makes sorting and keeping track of what I already have super easy. With cart/disk, manual, and case options I know at a glance what I have. I do find the pricing finicky, but I work the numbers through multiple sources anyways. I’ve emailed them with a few issues and missing games and they’ve always been very responsive. This is my first app review and have to give the original creator credit here.

Minor Inconveniences


Overall, this is a fantastic app; extremely thorough, easy to use, and perfect for my collections. However, there are 2 minor issues I have. One issue is that the total value of my collection is a bit lower than it should be. Another minor issue is that I got the virtual boy and 32x for free (I know that sounds like a good thing but I don’t have any desire to collect for those consoles) and now I have an annoying sliver on the pie chart that says “others” and I would really like that to go away. Still, this app is amazing and I could only imagine the amount of work that went into it.
