Archive of handheld games. In 1976, Mattel introduced the first handheld electronic game with the release of Auto Race. Later, several companies—including Coleco and Milton Bradley—made their own single-game, lightweight table-top or handheld electronic game devices. The oldest true handheld game console with interchangeable cartridges is the Milton Bradley Microvision in 1979.

I didn’t remember these until I saw all the photos in their homepage, then so much nostalgia rushed back. I definitely owned a few of those Tiger Electronics handhelds. I think my go-to was Ninja Turtles? So excited that MAME and Internet Archive are preserving these online
