Tiger, Tiger: Emulated Electronic Games

Today's most beautiful website ever is also full of playable games from our distant, dusty youth. Specifically, scanned, digitised, lovingly recreated and fully playable browser-based versions of those electronic LCD handhelds older gentleman such as myself pined for back in the 1980s. I seem to remember Tiger Electronics made the ones my erstwhile schoolmates so brazenly wielded, but the Pica Pic site seems to specialise in delectably strange Russian and Eastern European versions. I definitely owned Merry Cook at some point, but I'm sure it had a different name and played a tinny Beethoven tune throughout.

Beautiful to behold, timelessly aggravating to play. Take a look now, before some miserable bastard gets their copyright broom out and spoils it for everyone. Via @byronicman.
