I know these are not quite vpets, but I didn't know where to post this question, since they are kiiinda vpets related.
Are there still people that like / collect these? Cause I have 4 of them and I am not going to play with them and I feel like it would be a shame to throw them away. ;/

I got them from different lots along with vpets, I played the Mars Invader and it's super cool. xD

They look really fun! Have you tried the basketball one? What's it like?

You can make a TBay. That's fine. Unless you want a discussion about them, then here is good. :)

I always had a minor thing for these types of games. Galaxian... Tetris... Little race games. I loved the McD's handheld games they gave out years ago. The ones with the Sonic Team I thought were the best ones I had. I love the Cream Rabbit with Cheese Chao in a Flower shell with a flip top. It still works too, you catch flowers that Cheese drops to Cream.

Proof that old school isn't dead. B/W can still work for somethings.

Jhud I turned it on, but I couldn't work out how to play it, haha xD
You know, I was just wondering if there are people that would want them, the purple one and the grey one are those multi-game type ones, with car races, snake, tetris, etc. ;)

I used to love them. Could I interest you in something else from my topic, to add to our trade?

Ooh, I had one with Tails I think where you collected rings. It was very fun! Too bad I don't have it anymore... I might have some Crash Bandicoot game somewhere, though.

 

Carol, you could make a vid with every one of these so we get an idea of how they work.

This is definitely one topic I could on forever about.  I have a massive collection of many different kinds of handheld games, not just digital pets or handhelds related to them.

Two of my favorites in my collection are the AGE Device and Gage-ing Haro from Gundam AGE, released by Bandai Japan a couple of years ago.  These two go hand in hand with the figures and model kits from that same series, which the AG (Advanced Grade) and GB (Gage-ing Builder) subseries could be scanned into the Haro to battle against the computer.  The AGE Device has seven minigames which are all simple in gameplay, but difficult to master.  And it has a unique style of display, too.

I'll share pics of those soon enough if anyone wants to see them - I know evie also has these.  :)

WarOmni, if you're interested, I made a trading topic with my games, you can check it. ;)
