The El Jugador (pronounced: "el' hoo-ga-door") turns the Propeller Platform USB into a retro, open source game console that connects to any television. El Jugador takes advantage of the Propeller’s multitasking ability to generate graphics and video, making playing and creating retro-styled games fun and easy.
Once you’ve had a taste of the dozens of great games you can play on El Jugador, you can jump in and start programming your own in BASIC, C, Spin, or Assembly. Programming your own games is both easy and rewarding.
El Jugador arrives as an easy-to-assemble kit.
A beginner can assemble the El Jugador in less than an hour.
The El Jugador and the Propeller Platform USB together create the perfect open source gaming platform.
