Young'uns might not remember handheld LCD games, but before the Game Boy these crude devices were handheld gaming. Tiger Electronics was the king of licensing franchises like Ninja Gaiden and Mega Man only to butcher them into rudimentary diversions with static backgrounds. However, LCD games haven’t completely gone the way of the dodo. They still exist.
One company has unlicensed LCD conversions of Warcraft and Counter-Strike packaged with Strike the Bat. Since the package was sealed I didn’t get a chance to try these out. It was tempting to purchase the package, simply for the sake of research, but I reminisced to my past experience with Tiger’s games. Yeah, these would be junk in about five minutes so I passed. I guess we’ll never know how these turned out…
