Amazing Digital Collection of Playable Hand-held Electronic Games


Here is a little treat for you, a website chock full of playable digital replicas of those handheld, card-shaped LCD arcade games we all played in the ‘80s and early ‘90s. There are currently 27 games in total on display, and most of them you can actually play in your web browser. A big part of the fun, which also caused a little bit of sadness, was looking at all of the crisp images of these little handheld arcades and remembering which ones we loved the best and actually owned at one time. And it may surprise you, as it did us, that not all of these games are Japanese. A fair number of them are Russian, and few are from Taiwan. One Russian game, “Nu, pogodi!” involves a wolf trying to catch eggs in a basket, and is very simple, whimsical and fun. Yep, this site is one of the best time-wasters you’ve probably seen in awhile (Pica-Pic.com – Handheld LCD Game Madness) The game arcade page was created by Polish design company Hipopotam Studio. Their website is also pretty interesting: http://www.hipopotamstudio.pl/
