Tiger Handhelds

Do you recall all the wasted hours on the games and consoles of the past? Everything from the first Playstation and the Nintendo 64 to the NES and the Dreamcast is fair "game" here.

Please forgive the lame pun.

Tiger Handhelds

Postby McMurphy » Sat Feb 28, 2009 1:40 am

Does anyone else remember the Tiger Handhelds? There were a few companies putting out handheld games at that time, but Tiger seemed to dominate the market, and often featured NES titles in their selections. What games did people have?

I would love to lie to you and claim I still had mine in storage or something, but they have all been sold off or given away at this point. I had a handful---no pun intended---of the games, but the only ones that are coming to mind at the moment are Simon's Quest and Spider-Man.

Murphy,
Wow! How could I miss this post? I remember playing X-Men for hours on end. Here is a picture of it.

Until I was talking to Azul, Balki, and Korchie, I completely forgot that I had a Tiger Game Wristwatch as well.

I had a lot of them. They were awesome, until it got too dark outside to play them.

I did have one, but I forget what it was. It may have been something like Shinobi.

I had a Mario 3 game watch - in fact I still have it stashed in a drawer, but it stopped working when I absent-mindedly got in the bath with it on. Gah! :lol:
