The fully playable machine has been designed and built by computer engineer Mark Slevinsky of Alberta, Canada.
The machine stands at just 124 x 52 x 60mm (4.88 x 2.05 x 2.35in) and is smaller than an iPhone.
Slevinsky said: "My wife and I are expecting our first child any day now - he'll be the right size to play the arcade machine!"
The device is featured in the new Guinness World Records 2013 Gamers Edition, out today (January 10).
