Sweet pickups indeed bud! What I love most is handhelds like these represent an era that will never be repeated. Singular gameplay focus but with variations, they really had to put a lot of though behind these little gadgets, to me they have a real charm to them. These day I have only one I have today is BAMBINO BOXING I bought a few years back off a fella who doesn't collect such things. I include a picture (not mine) fun and interesting handelds.

There was a charm to these units as each one had to market itself individually.    For example, how cool is the text on the side of that Maniac box?   As a kid how could I resist?

 

Those games are 1980 and 1979 respectively.

I have NEVER seen that Bambino Boxing, that thing is a beauty!

Thanks! It has the manual, too, and even the styrofoam insert inside the box. It was also programmed in part by Garry Kitchen, who also programmed several Atari titles.
