AAaarrgghhh!!!

I had loads, maybe 20 of these. The double Super Mario one, the double Donkey Kong, the single Donkey Kong, Balloon Fight etc etc

But I stupidly gave them all away 20 years ago... I WANT THEM BACK!!!

There's a Tiger game in there somewhere as well.

Yup, I also regret not keeping these!

II remember these, especially because i expected them to be fun and recall being frustrated playing with terrible game play. I often couldnt wait to go back home and play my sega masters or nes, I was so happy when the game boy was launched and I got one for christmas. My lucky brother got a game gear we used to trade on and off with, I have so many good memories with handheld gaming!

Hell yes I remember these, I came from a much later era, but I picked one of these up somewhere and was fascinated with it. It was a much more advanced design where you could fold it in half like today's Nintendo DS. It had a great build quality and accent colours - so the aesthetic appeal was a bonus.

Here's what mine looked like:
My Game & Watch version

How awesome looking is that for an antique gaming relic??!


Thank you for creating this thread - it has brought back so many memories, and my face lit up when I saw the title.

I was going to mention it also.

I think this style football game with the dashes on the screen, had to be one of the first of all the handheld games.

It reminds me of those ancient tv screen overlays and button over lays for level design and control scheme. Gaming has come a long long way!
