Subject: 80's Handheld Electronic Games

Written By: robby76 on 10/28/05 at 9:18 pm

All this talk of arcade and computer games got me reminiscing. Anyone remember the Nintendo Game & Watch handheld games released in 1981?

My Mum bought us all Octopus, Egg and Popeye!  We used to have so much fun!

Here's a website I looked at http://www.handheldmuseum.com/

I remember those.  I used to have some of the Tiger ones:  Double Dragon & Altered Beast.  I even had a Super MArio Bros. 3 Watch :)

Well done Whistle, I knew I could count on you. Just had to add Popeye for old times sakes.

  I still have a primitive TOMY Cosmic Combat game. It's an L.E.D. space invaders style game.

Whistle you are a STAR!!! I can't believe I'm playing egg as I speak complete with original sound! This is unreal! If someone told me I'd be playing it today I'd be like "yeah right"! God I love the internet!

There was another site I tried to find that had even more of them like "Dungeons and Dragons", but it seems to have closed down :(
