Who wants to play retro handheld games on their TV? 

 

Well, now you can with the Mattel Classic Sports 3-in-1 plug and play!  Baseball, football, and basketball -- the LED versions right on your bigscreen!  Have fun, kids, and stop scratching your heads.

These handhelds definitely have more of a 'You-had-to-be-there' appeal to us retro gamers who started out with these mobile games back when electronics was turning out to be a kid's best friend.

 

Portability, multi-player ops, brief time-efficient rounds, basic strategy - all-in-all some incredibly-tight fun in a small package.

Battery turnover was the biggest setback, and even that didn't affect us as much as it did when larger sets came about (looking at you, Coleco Pac-Man...aww c'mere, gimme a hug old pal!).

 

I dunno what they expected out of a big screen port. NoSwear's vid pretty much sums it up. Just a terrible idea.

 

But those original handheld re-issues I see popping around? Pure gold!

Get those instead. Impress your friends, family and co-workers.

Amaze the dog!

Bore the cat!

Get some batteries!

 

Still have my Battlestar Galactica: Space Alert.

Had so much fun with it, it earned a spot in the family and I gave it a name.

 

uh...I named it Battlestar Galactica: Space Alert, to avoid confusion.
