Pressing the power button interrupts the game and puts the device into a low-power sleep mode. Pressing the power button again will immediately resume the game from where it left off.
This is a simple but nice feature, as there are many times when you cannot stop the game at the right moment, such as when you are on the move.

While it is a pleasure to be able to display the games of the past beautifully on a high-performance display, there are probably some fans of the past who are selfish and feel that the games are too beautiful and do not capture the atmosphere of the past.
For those people, the " Original Display Modes " are included to recreate the image quality of those days!
