I recently started to get interested in Tomy's old 80's handheld games.

But only the skillbased ones such as: "AAAAGHH!", "Snafu", "YEEAGHH!" and more..

anyone else interested in these?

I wanna speed run them!! :lol:

Back in the 80's I had a Tomytronic 3D Thundering Turbo:

Hey! Those things *can* be considered as non-twisty puzzles. Unless there are some objections,
I will move it to the appropriate forum.

I have some, and they can be considered as speed-labyrinths, skill, balancing, and gravity puzzles.

well they are all hard to complete! And they are mostly wind-ups or battery driven!

I really love them all! Especially the YEEAGHH! and AAAAGHH! And KONG MAN! so original and mechanical!

All are made by TOMY in China, Japan, Thailand or Singapore

Feel free to move the topic :)

Indeed, the puzzling fun and challenge is aplenty in those little handhelds.
Hopefully, they will make some similar designs in the future.

Their simplicity is the key to enjoying them.

Thread moved!

Rack 'em up and Row by row

They have been sold under the name of pocketful's and pocketeers. Good luck in your search!
