Fidelity Voice Chess Challenger

Fidelity Voice Chess Challenger

One of many tabletop chess computers released by Fidelity Electronics in the late 1970s and early 1980s. This one was the first to distinguish itself by being able to speak the moves that the player entered and which the computer itself it wished to make. Other models included 'sensory' featur...

Galaxy Invader

Galaxy Invader is a classic style shoot-em-up, clearly inspired by arcade hit Space Invaders. The invaders in this case are presented at random positions across a 3-column green LED display, and are worth different points depending upon how far up the screen they are shot. As in the original sp... (read more)

Invader from Space (Grandstand)

Invader from Space (Grandstand)

Another game inspired by Space Invaders, involving a fairly narrow column of invaders advancing down the screen. As with some versions of Space Invaders in the arcade, the screen is coloured so that the alien ships change colour as they move down. The game has a particularly loud beeper; guaran... (read more)

Kevin Keegan's Match of the Day

Kevin Keegan's Match of the Day

A hand-held electronic game for one or two players, this was the first of two games to be marketed using the name of footballer Kevin Keegan. The gameplay is rather rudimentary, with players and the ball both represented by LED stripes (the ball being lit a little more brightly!). (read more)

Mini-Munchman

Mini-Munchman

Perhaps notable for being the only Pac-Man game that was less like the arcade original than Munchman was! Mini-Munchman was a pocket-sized game with a monochromatic LCD display, which also doubled as a clock and alarm (clearly aping the defining characteristic of Nintendo's popular Game & Watch...

Nintendo DS Lite

The DS Lite was the first redesign of the popular DS handheld, which had originally been released in 2004. As the name suggests, the key difference was a slimmer, lighter design, with the device weighing 218 grams (as opposed to the 275 of the original). It did, however, also enjoy a slightly l...

PacMan 2

Produced by Entex, this was arguably the very best of the handheld Pac-Man games of the era. Not only was the playfield (maze) closest to the arcade version, it was also sufficiently fast to feel genuinely playable (unlike the more popular Munchman game of the same era, which was somewhat . . . ...

Pocket Simon

Pocket Simon

Literally a pocket-sized clone of the original tabletop Simon (provided that you had a fairly generously sized pocket). The games are exactly the same as the full size version, although those that are designed for multiple players are perhaps less effective with everyone gathered around this sma... (read more)
Milton Bradley, 1980

Puck Monster

A very respectable handheld Pac-Man game, offering a playfield that was similar to the arcade concept, and control via a small joystick rather than the direction buttons that other handhelds of the era had tended towards. Colourful LED graphics, a decent speed, and the fact that your Pac-Man cha... (read more)

Scramble

Scramble

A tabletop game that aims to be at least a little similar to the classic arcade game of the same name. The main similarly is that it is a sideways scrolling game in which you have to shoot and bomb things without losing lives. The differences are pretty much everything else. However, it was n...

Space Invader (Entex)

Space Invader (Entex)

Tandy Cosmic 3000 Fire Away

A Tandy-badged version of Gakken's Galaxy Invader 2000, which many will also have known as the CGL-badged Galaxy Invader 10000. The explanation is that many handheld games got licenced and rebadged by other companies, sometimes with casing and colour changes (in this particular case, the shape a... (read more)
