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.

  • 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

  • these were kind of awesome! the physical devices were exciting to look at and engage with... but the tech wasn't there, the lcd screen was a huge let down. but if you did this now with current tech, it'd probably be pretty cool.

  • Omg...I cant belive this i just found ur page bro....awesome but what has me shocked is that outrun lcd machine....I HAD IT AS A KID....never could figure out what it was as a kid I remember it well. So damn simple left and right with the ugliest typical lcd screens. I still have it but completely forgot it. Thank u so much for not only showing me which it was because I didn't know where to look lol man such a bad "game" lol fun as a kid

  • 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.

I took it apart after I found out that I didn't have to turn the wheel if I was on a specific spot after about a month of playing. I would have loved the real deal

I remember them vividly, and the contempt I felt for them, thinking as a kid, what a waste, couldn't even use them for something else, all the effort and material put into them, would have had a better experience with a plain toy car or an unplugged joystick or steering wheel.

  • "Inverted commas" is a rather odd designation for marks like ' " `. They're primarily used to indicate quoted text, and sometimes to show the word they bracket is being used euphemistically, sarcastically, or in a sardonic manner. It's clearer to lose the "comma" designation and call them by their main function..."quotation marks" or "quotes".

  • I wonder if the wheels are like that on the Outrun game because they repurposed an existing plastic toy car mold? Making the molds and tooling up for manufacture is by far the most expensive part. If they had a warehouse full of plastic cars, it would be natural to just use those. Even if they just used existing injection molding equipment for the front of the car to make the shell, it would have saved them a lot of up-front cost.
