Hasbro is Bringing back Tiger Electronics Handheld Games
As a kid of the late 80's and early 90's, video games were the thing. At the time, Nintendo was the king. They had a home console and also a portable system in the Gameboy. However, if you couldn't afford a Gameboy, another handheld gaming alternative was Tiger Electronics.
The company made these handheld games that used a LCD screen that displayed choppy movements and controls that were not that great. I had three or four of these; Gauntlet, Double Dragon, a racing game and one other I can't remember right now. Yeah, they played like crap but there was an odd bit of fun to them.
Well, Hasbro will be reintroducing these games later this year. Four games will be available to start with:
All four are available for pre-order at gamestop.com for $14.99 each. I really want to pick these up. I probably won't open them. Just keep them in the packaging to collect.
Thanks Hasbro for the ultra tug of the Nostalgia string.
