I just wanted to leave 3 links here because they feel very on-topic for this thread.

http://www.handheldmuseum.com/

http://handheldempire.com/

http://pica-pic.com/

I played a few of these games the other day while standing in line at a mall's anchor store. I wasn't impressed. Graphic and gameplay felt like cheap ports. But this Oregon Trail handheld, that has piqued my interest.

They had better still release a proper version of Defender. I'm still worried about that.

The ones available at Wal-Mart are way better than the ones found anywhere else.

Yeah, everyone seems to really like that one. I've watched a few videos on it, and everybody has nothing but good things to say about it.

It even made it on an episode of the Ben Heck show, he managed to make it even more portable than it already is...

So much for that spring release of these Arcade Classics 😕...

But they did release the static screen Tetris, which looks to be pretty darn good for what it is. The music on it is really good too.

Check out this vid and see for yourself...

... I'm definitely impressed!

Here are the latest Arcade Classics:

11) Ms. Pac-Man

12 ) Fix-It Felix

They're both Wal-Mart exclusives, and therefore they both have the color LCD screens like # 8 Joust and # 10 Rampage.

I'm hearing that # 13 is going to be Tetris, but we'll just wait and see.

Still waiting for a # 9 to get released...

I got to play Fix it Felix at the arcade in Disneyland just after the movie came out. The cabs were set to free-play. Most kids just walked buy them.... It was strange seeing this as I grew up during the Golden Age of arcades. It was a really fun game. I might have to visit my local Walmart this week and grab one for my desk.

I guess 11 and 12 means there's still hope for the 9? Or else surely they would have down-numbered one of these to fill the gap.

I missed this round of Ms. Pacs at my local store, but I managed to get their next to last Felix. Looks like I'll have to attack it old-school and do some store hopping soon.
