The RecalBox software package is very much like RetroPie. Both software packages are built on top of the Raspbian operating system and make use of EmulationStation as their visual frontend.
However, they both run different forks of EmulationStation and come with different configurations out of the box, giving slightly different experiences when playing your favorite games.
RecalBox’s copy of the EmulationStation frontend is packed with more features than RetroPie’s. It allows you to configure more of the operating system without having to resort back to the command line like in RetroPie.
