The beloved farming simulator Stardew Valley has now been ported to RK3326 devices such as the Anbernic RG351 series, PowKiddy RGB10 series, ODROID Go Advance/Super, and the GameForce Chi. Setting up this game is similar to other ports such as Shovel Knight, Undertale, and Iconoclasts. Mad props to developer JohnnyOnFlame for getting this port running; please consider buying him a coffee for his hard work.Continue reading “Stardew Valley on Retro Handhelds”
Today we’re going to set up the indie game Iconoclasts to work on RK3326-powered retro handheld devices such as the RG351MP and the RG351V. This port is available thanks to the PortMaster platform, which is available on the ArkOS, Retro Arena, and 351ELEC firmwares.
- The video guide shows you how to set up the device on ArkOS, but the process will be the same for 351ELEC or The Retro Arena.
- This game isn’t meant to play on low-resolution screens, and so the text is mostly illegible on 480×320 displays like on the RG351P, RG351M, and RGB10. In general, I would recommend this game for the RG351MP, RG351V, and the Chi GameForce.
- As of making this video, the port doesn’t work on RetroOZ, so there is no option to play this on the RGB10 Max or ODROID Go Super.
The 3D-printed grips in this video can transform the ergonomics of your device, and they ship worldwide. Current models include options for the RG350, RG350P, RG350M, RG280V, RG351P, RG351M, RG351V, and RG351MP devices.
I’m also giving away the following units:
RG280V (silver 80%)
RG350M/RG350P/RG351MP (orange transparent)
RG350M/RG350P/RG351MP (red transparent)
RG350 (green transparent)

Moonlight is a game streaming tool designed to allow you to stream your screen (and games) from a PC to a connected device. This means you can stream games that wouldn’t normally run on your device, such as GameCube, PS2, PC games, and so on. This is an excellent option if you want to play a few games while in bed, or on the couch, or maybe at the dinner table.
For this guide, we will focus on Moonlight support for ArkOS and RetroOZ firmwares on the following handheld devices:
Anbernic RG351P (ArkOS final, 351ELEC) — requires WiFi dongle
Anbernic RG351M (ArkOS final, 351ELEC)
Anbernic RG351V (ArkOS, 351ELEC)
Anbernic RG351MP (ArkOS, 351ELEC)
