Retro Handheld Website

when I was a boy - all those years ago... before Amiga's, I used to be into the hand held games.

I am sure that you guys know about this website...
http://www.handheldmuseum.com/index.html

But for those of you that don't - it has a pretty good list of handheld games that were being played back in the late 70's and early eighties.

I spotted this one I used to have...
http://www.handheldmuseum.com/Bambino/UFO.htm

Can you see any that you used to own?

What was your best one?

...then you are going to love this old site

MADrigal's handheld simulators

Edit: actually, going to move this thread to the Retrogaming General Discussion section...

Edit2: there are loads of cool games there but unfortunately not Parachute or Octapus (whatever they were called)

The game (boxed one) shown here was actually mine, which I sold on Ebay some time ago..

I didn't bother erasing the three quid boot sale price off the box front, which may be the reason it went for only a tenner!

I've sold most of my collection now, but have held onto a few G&W's and Bandai LCDs.

This was a really popular game at school...

Typically Tandy (Radio Shack) did a cheaper alternative... as ever...

I've posted it before on EAB but unfortunately it was in Off Topic, now at least it won't disappear

Great link Peter!!!

I remember practically all those hand-held and mini-arcade games. Just before breaking up for xmas or summer we were permitted to bring in our fav games and toys at junior school for a last day celebration. I think it was just an excuse for the teachers to have the last day off too.

Nearly every game listed there and perhaps more would wind up in classes throughout the school. Today, if they still allow such things, I'm sure it would be PSP's and DS's on wi-fi link play.

I still have the Grandstand Scramble game - one which that guy who runs the website is missing from his collection - and it still works like a charm after all these years.
