Retro games and selfies

What is it about?

PowerUp is the ultimate 8-bit selfie camera app. Just snap a photo of yourself (or whatever) and then get a blast from the past with different filters that represent the graphics produced by the old video game consoles of yesteryear. The initial download includes two systems (Sega Genesis and Nintendo Entertainment System) with the option for six more (Super Nintendo, Atari, Game Gear, and more). Each system provides a unique pixelated look that it was known for, and you can save or share your 8-bit images directly or through social networks. This is a must-have for any old-school gamer who wants to spice up their profile pic.

For those who...

  • Love the old-school retro video game systems
  • Want an interesting way to spice up their selfie

Not for those who...

  • Don't care for retro video game consoles or selfies
  • Hate the pixelated look

Why we love it

It is super easy to use and the distinctive appearance of each system makes for an awesome conversation starter.
