Tiger, Tiger: Emulated Electronic Games

Two colours 4eva

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.
