HANDHELD ELECTRONIC GAMES
I have a complete collection of Mattel LED handheld games (minus a couple rare duplicates that I sold off a couple years ago).
These little gems came out in the mid to late '70s. They would take a single 9V battery, and all gameplay was typically done with a small matrix of LED dots.
All sound was done with a tiny built-in piezo driver.
I was in love with these little guys the minute I first saw a neighbor kid with Auto Race! As a kid I only had "Football II",
"Battlestar Galactica Space Alert", and "Armor Attack".
I also have several other handheld games from the era like Merlin, etc. I have about 30 or so Simon games that
I plan on using to create a giant computerized lighting display for my gameroom. It's going to be an extremely impressive piece of work.
My favorite games were Space Alert, Master Blaster, and Super Simon.
