It is a portable unit made to look similar to the popular Game Boy Advance, minus the shoulder buttons and D-Pad, coming in two colors; translucent blue and translucent pink (resembling similar colors made for the original GBA). For power it requires 3 AA batteries or a 4.5V AC adapter. The screen emulates a standard television screen size (4:3 aspect ratio).
Through the use of a yellow cartridge that is plugged into the system where a Game Boy Advance game might go, it can play regular Famicom cartridges, albeit with certain compatibility as with most Famiclones. It can also play NES games using an NES to Famicom cartridge converter, although this setup is rickety as such converters are usually flimsy contraptions and the NES cart is completely suspended above the system by said flimsy card.
The Game Theory Admiral can act as a home console as well when uses the pack-in AV adaptor and when one purchases controllers that plug into the bottom of the system (again these peripherals connect using a port similar to the EXT. port on the GBA). The video connection is surprisingly clear, but the sound is often distorted.
