Hi, I just got the only (?) Virtual Boy competitor in the mail today: A Tiger R-Zone. It's a thing that you strap to your head and play games that reflect onto a screen that you see with your right eye. Anyone else have one of these? Maybe some games that I would like to own? More info in Wikipedia:

Even though there are several games on R-Zone, only 4 types exist and all games are built on these three types...

Side-scrolling Fighter
FPS (First Person Shooter)
Multidirectional Combatant Fighter
Racer

And all of the games in those categories are slightly modified sprites but the same gameplay mechanics with the multidirectional combatant fighter games being of the worst quality. The FPS's are the best the system has the offer.

The side-scrolling fighter games are somewhat fun but still boring after a bit, the FPS is what you would want to play if you wanted to torture yourself with this console.
Racing games are also okay but very repetitive.

If you own 1 of each categories you basically own all the games, because as I said they are merely sprite hacks of each other.

Someone should make a homebrew game for the R-Zone. Maybe a shooter and call it "Call of Duty." I just ordered a copy of Daytona USA off eBay. So now I'll have two games. Anyone know of any site besides eBay where I can get games for this thing?

I just bought a R-zone with Star Wars Millennium Falcon Challenge... Which is supposed to be the best the system had to offer.
