Before I ever played with a Game Boy or a Game Gear, I remember playing these very simple Tiger Electronics games that had a minimal amount of buttons and limited screen movement. They were fun for a while but the graphics just couldn’t compete with this other entertainment device known as the TV. Still, there was some fun factor in those games that was just never replicated in anything else. There was something about seeing your character only move in 3 or 4 positions on screen while killing endless numbers of bad guys that seemed really future.
And so that’s why Pica-Pic is so fun! You get to play all these classic handheld games — mostly for free — and all one right after the other!
