Any of you had the Tomytronic 3d games?

We, well my ex brother had one in the 80's, the Sky Attack one, but my mam played it most of the time, as she loved playing it.

Took a few years, but finally picked up another, as most of our toys are in the loft and there was no way I was going up there, so picked up the Sky Attack again and have to say, it's still fun.

Also got my best friend the Planet Zeon one for Yule, and he's better at it than me Surprised .

Deleted it in 80's Toys and moved it here, which is where I really should have put it.

Sky Attack? I think I have played it, actually. Too bad that my memories end there... but I did enjoy it :)

It's a fun little game.

Aww, too bad that wasn't what I thought it was. But that looks fine! Is it better than the Tiger Electronics games? It does look more competent.

I never had any Tiger games, so I can't really say.

But, I can say that the Tomytronic games were a load of fun and quite advanced for the time.

Only drawback, you need light and plenty of it to see the display.

Yeah, they actually do look better than the Tiger ones.

And I can relate... those LCD games were (and still are, for the most part) quite impossible to see without optimal lighting conditions... hell, even my Gameboy Pocket does that.

Looking at the Tiger games, I do like the look of the WCW game.

The original Gameboy too. Though I did get the light magnifier for it.

I own a Batman LCD game (made by Tiger) and I assure you that it is NOT fun. It's... just not enjoyable, but I don't know how to explain it. Maybe YouTube search some of those?

Haha, the one which had to be connected thru the Gameboy batteries? Did it actually serve its purpose?

I'll have a look on youpube. But if they aren't fun, then it's a waste. Thanks for the heads up.

It was this light attachment https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J-OzTmicgqs

My pleasure, mate Smile

Oh, that one! Yeah, it looks quite competent. It would definitely have helped to have one of those while playing my "Alien vs Predator" games.

Tee-hee Very Happy

I actually play my games on a MP4 player nowadays... it's just a better experience (plus, rechargeable battery!).

I'm currently killing all my brain cells trying to figure out "Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening DX" Very Happy

Nintendo sure know how to make engaging games.

I'm on Ocarina of Time on the 3ds. Had it for N64, before I "sold" it to my brother, and also picked up the promotional disc for the Gamecube, with the first 2 and Ocarina and Majora's Mask.

Ocarina of time, mate? I SO want to try that game, but I'm afraid that emulation wouldn't cut it.

And you are right, they do know how to do so Smile

It doesn't I'm afraid. Lots of missing textures and clipping. On the PSP even, it's worse.

Saying that, it is a great game and if you can pick it up cheap, I'd highly recommend it.

Don't you fancy the fact that we can emulate other consoles like it is nothing, but we have yet to figure out the Nintendo 64?

Aye. That and the SuperFX. I've still to find one for handhelds that'll run them.

Loved Starwing and Starfleet Academy. Had 'em both on the SNES.

I REALLY don't know what happens with Nintendo consoles in general. The only way to play -and beat- Banjo-Kazooie was to completely turn off the sound or it would run at like 15 FPS... outstanding, isn't it?

Banjo-Tooie was impossible regardless.

And trying to emulate either Gamecube or Wii is a freaking nightmare too.
