Handheld games which offer brief moments of distraction, but did you know that Tiger actually made deluxe versions of these games in tabletop format. The outcome is, as you'd expect, ridiculous and absurd, so I felt like it was time to look a the 3 main culprits. Afterburner, Outrun and Batman.

  • My cousins had outrun when we were young. It was really cool because it was just so different from how gaming was evolving at the time since Nintendo and Sega were changing the arcade market into handheld controllers. This style of play somehow made me feel like I was playing a game more in the classic era when arcades were popular-before I was born

  • In the US during the 90's there was a magazine called "Penny Power" later renamed "Zillions" that reviewed toys the same way the parent company Consumer Reports reviewed home appliances and cars. The After Burner game was highlighted for being a stellar example of packaging over functionality, noting the discrepancy between the size of the device itself and the tiny LCD screen. I assume there were significant cost factors involved due to economies of scale, but for the tabletop sized games Tiger should have at least had a bigger screen than on the handheld version.

  • You unlocked a memory in my mind. I remember seeing these in KB toys once as a kid, I wanted one so badly. But my dad wouldnt get me one cause it wasnt worth it. Later that year I got my Gameboy Pocket for christmas. My dad isn't smart with new tech, but he knew that the Gameboy was worth more than whatever Tiger shilled out.

  • I had Outrun as a kid. My parents picked it up at an auction they were helping at for dirt cheap. I had an Atari 2600, Magnavox, Colecovision, and a mini Pac-Man cabinet. I was not impressed with that piece of junk. It was a fun distraction for a few hours and then it went down into the basement to be forgotten until my parents sold it at a garage sale a year or so later. The NES hit the shelves not long after and everything else went to the wayside lol

  • That i what we see from old times. Color LCD handheld consoles costs more money, so other companies made cheaper versions with b/w LCD with fixed pictures on it. But in big plastic box... is kinda useless, made them more expensive. But its just for fun, i guess. Childrens want grab stick or steering wheel. I bet after a while, they will just land in the back of the storage room. Because there is no much to do, and it's not portable at all. You cannot put it in your bag.

  • When I was a kid in the 90s these games were so substandard and disappointing even in their packaging that I was never remotely interested. These were sold at the same time as the SNES and N64. Why anyone purchased these is beyond me. Cool now as vintage tech but Tiger had no business surviving into the 90s at all with terrible products like these.
