I am closing the forum for now. I was getting very tired of the spam. Every day, someone comes here and posts garbage about viagra, cialis, weight loss, furniture, stocks, porn, etc. Every day I have to get rid of it. So I am disallowing new messages for now, but keeping the old messages here for archival purposes. Thanks to everyone who did post something!

:D

My friend Lurker ... I apologize. I do have a reason to get my site up now. The company I work for just laid off the entire Print section of our Creative Dept. I figure it won't be long before the Interative Dept will go the same way. The company is moving all it's creative needs to a mega-conglomerate design house. So much for the in-house agency, eh? Right now, I'm busy installing print samples into the Gallery section. A lighter version should be launching in the next couple of weeks.

My bad and sad!

Hey gang! I'm still here and kicking. My Flash-driven website is almost done and I got a surprise last weekend! My parents brought me some boxes from home that had some of my old stuff it them. Inside one of the boxes ... a Coleco Perma-Power AC adapter for their handheld games. The labels were pretty worn so I recreated them and will make them available soon.

That game sounds like Entex Select a Game. A very early cartridge based tabletop. You also might be thinking of the Milton Bradley Microvision. I had both of these for sale recently, but they are now sold. Now that you have some names you can find them much easier!

Back in the 70's, perhaps 1973-1975, I had a handheld cartridge video game. It was perhaps 12 inches long and four inches wide and had an lcd display composed of roughly 1/8 inch square pixels. The cartridges clipped on top of the unit with a clear window to see the display through. It came with at least one cartridge and others were available. The one I recall was a breakout type of game. Ring any bells with anyone?

Greetings. Maybe someone knows what I'm looking for. It was a pocket game that folded up, I believe it was red, and if I recall correctly there were two chefs one on each side of screen....and the object was to pass pizzas from side to side and get them into the oven. Something like that. I didn't see it on the site but maybe I missed it. I thought it was called Pass the pizzas...or something like that. Any help would be appreciated.

I picked up a Ludotronic "Hop Man" off of eBay for a somng ($30). It's pretty MINT, just minor scuffs, and it works fine, however the layer with the game play is VERY dim, so much so that it's almost unplayable.

Any idea what may cause this? Both bulbs are bright and working, and all else functions.

It stink because to play it, I have to view it very close up and from an odd angle.

The background layer is super bright.

I'm bumming! :(

Hi fellas,

I was going through some of my old birthday pictures, when I saw a box in the background for the game Space Shot put out by tandy. I guess this was around 1980 or 81, I was either 11 or 12.

I have been going nuts for the past year trying to locate this game, It's never on ebay. Anyway, just wanted to see if anyone here would know where I might be able to find it. I've been having a terrible nostalgia craze lately. Trying to buy back my childhood!

Please accept my apology in advance if this is not the place to ask a question like this. Thanks for any help.

You could download the file, print it out and use that print-out as a pattern to cut a new piece of plastic. I'm sure someone sells plastic the same thickness and color. :-)

The screen protector might still be inside the unit! Open it up and see. It might have fallen and stuck inside. It is a see-through piece of plastic.

damn, after all these years - i am missing a screen protector.. does it fall out easily? like steve said, attached on the inside by simple tape strips.. i guess they are worn out and fell apart. jboissy - what good will it do if you scan me the screen protector to print it out? it's a piece of plastic, not paper.. unless if i am mistaken that there are more decals showing around the game screen (like the bezel art for upright coin-op video arcade games?)

I had a game the looked like the Pac-man Cabnit style. This game had a "space-man" fighting his way in a maze to reach what i believe was a golden cup...or the prize was to achieve the golden cup.Well long story short my sisters nail polish spilled onto the game screen and dried. 21 years later i still try to remember the name of the game.

I second what Steve just posted. I think the plastic protector also reduced the glare from screen #1 (playfield) to help keep the display area as dark as possible. Hence the blue-purple color of the plastic.

Just my 2-cents after a week of rummaging thru the guts of my Zaxxon unit.

BTW ... the side labels for the Zaxxon cabinet are almost done.
#82 -  10.10.2005 10:13

It did come with a screen protector - a flimsy rectangular piece of plastic material, blue-grey in color, it is attached on the inside by simple tape strips. It would be easy to make one yourself.

I was just looking through some of my old things and found Gakken "Kitchen pannic" in original box. I bought new batteries (expensive) and it works well. Its a great game. A few years before i bought this game in ?1981 or so, my father brought "cross highway" back from a trip to Japan. No one in my school had seen such a game back then. Unfortuneately, my brother had it stolen from him when he brought it to school.

Hi there,

I'm hoping someone here can help me remember a handheld i had once upon a time ;)

what i think i can remember:
The case looked pretty much like a game&watch handheld
It was limegreen
It was widescreen
It was about a boy that had to rescue a princess from a witch, one had to remember a spell combination and do it by a moving broom that threw water from a bucket. you had to get the key to unlock the princess..... well at least that's how i recall it ;)

Hi all,

Gee these handhelds bring back memories.. I found some old ones I had at my parents house, Lupin, Kingman, Donkey Kong Jnr and Hunter (wasn't a well known game)...

It's funny how I still remember all the tactics after not playing them for about 15 years or more...

Anyhow I remembered one trick I used to do with Lupin was that you can shoot his own legs off in level 2 after you've finished shooting all the guards... You simply fire then tap left button quickly 3 times or so and you can actually run in front of the bullet.. Quite funny coz your score increases every time you do it!.. Must be coz Lupin's legs are the same sprite that the guards are...hehe

long live classic arcades :)

Hi Marcel,
I have a small suggestion. You can just head down to the toy section of any shopping centre and you can pick out some LCD cames that come as blisterpacks.

You should be able to see some Pokemon stuff. Just flip the blisterpack over and check if tghe manufacturer in in your country.

Just my five cents...

Actually, radio shack never made a single item ever. All their electronics and games are made by other companies, and radio shack just puts their name on it.

Hi, I read your repair section and found it very useful. I just wanted to let you know that loose screws may also cause the LCD graphics not too appear, since the screen apparently needs to be tightly sealed for them to work.

I also noticed you're missing some LCD Simpsons games from the past decade or so. Go here http://www.snpp.com/guides/games.html#30 under Handheld to find them.

Thanks for a great site!

Hi David,
Coleco tabletops were only sold in US so you have to rely on Ebay auctions. Try searching under "Table-top" or "Tabletop"
under search.

Bandai and Gakken tabletops can be found in Yahoo Japan auctions but sellers seldom speak English and almost never ship overseas. You need someone there to buy and receive the games before shipping them to you.

I have decided to sell off a large chunk of my handheld video game collection. Soon I will maintain a price list of games here, but for now I would say that 90% of the games you see on this website are currently in my possession and are available for purchase. This is a great opportunity to get some very rare games in mint-boxed condition. More information to come soon, but email me now if you are interested in buying a game on this website.

I am brand new to collecting these games. And actually I do not have any yet, but I bought just about every Coleco one on ebay over the past week.

After I started looking around ebay, I would see a game that I have not even thought about in 20 plus years. I would have flashbacks to when I played them as a kid.

The most vivid flashbacks came whenever I found the Tomy Digital or Demon driver game. I can remember playing that on the playground. I had not given one thought to it until I saw it. Also, the Merlin brings back lots of memories. I played the sh*$# out of that thing.

Some guys have Vietnam flashbacks, I have early handheld video game flashbacks. The 1980s was the best decade by far. Man I am getting old. I am guessing that the guy running this sight is 34 years old just like me. Just a stab in the dark.:cool:

Yeah, probably looking for websites and auctions in japan is a good idea. Sometimes the seller will not sell overseas, but some do. Other than ebay, looking on websites (like mine), making friends and doing trades is not only smart but also a good way to meet people. I myself am not actively buying or selling anymore, and I will only trade away for others that I really want, for instance a mint in box colorvision .... ;)

hi David,

I hear you. That's why also stopped shopping at ebay almost altogether. The other day I put in a bid for a boxed Bandai Zaxxon that I really wanted and got outbid even though I put in what I thought was a ridiculously high bid...

My tip: starting looking in Japan & in Europe...

Hi Steven. I'm just getting started in collecting strictly table top games myself. I'm having fun but finding it hard to get what I want on ebay (I normally get outbid). If you have any tips you could possibly share on picking these items up anywhere online or somewhere in person, drop me an email. Thanks appreciated in advance!
ps- great site, btw! I love the layout! Very retro-tastic! :)

There are NO vintage handheld games of tetris. None were made until the 90's, I believe. Then about a zillion cheap little tetris clone handhelds were made, none of which were licensed.
