Mine was based on Golgo 13. Think it was called Secret Agent or something similar.
Donkey Kong from back in 1982.
family computer ? ? is that the name ?

HANDHELD REMAKES :: The Archive
Merlin was my first, ahh the memories of tic tac toe, music player, a simon type game.
Definately a much loved classic.
Closely followed by this old beastie.
Ahh the hours and hours of joy this old machine gave me.
Wow talk about a trip!!!!
Time & Fun : Banana.
The brown one with the little street-sweeper guy.
I also got the Pancake one (I think it was dark green?) later, but Banana was my fave.
At risk of inviting flame wars for wasting TOGgers' valuable time, I found this: MADrigal's handhelds simulators and downloaded the aforementioned Banana game. That's the end of my productivity today...
Merlin for me too, I still have mine.
i have a handheld football games too...
That would be ATARI for me. ET was my first game!
Something like Classic Football:
Mattel’s handheld football game « Billy Liggett
But it was in the late '70s, I think, together with a Beretta board game and heavy Tonka toys.
umm a game and watch but not sure which...either the green or orange donkey kong
My first official hand held would have been a orange football game... two player. You were just a line that moved around. Only like 5 "figures" on each side.
But my first gaming console that was hand held actually isn't retro as it was the PSP.
Hehe, ive still got it here, Ill go take a photo...
Its a car racing game, with a wheel that you turn and dodge the cars that roll down towards you.
EDIT: Heres a youtube video of someone playing the same game
Heres a pic of mine, I remember I took it to grade 5 camp in 1979, it is stamped on the back 1978 production date and its made by TOMY.
Oh and yes, that is my name my old man scratched into it, so no-one else would steal it, hmm, wasnt happy about that either...
First hand held was a calculator.
Numbers would scroll across and you had to add the the balance to that number to make 10 for that number to disappear.
There was also a boxing calculator that had low/high punch and sway.
Great calculators, found out later that they can add, subtract and multiply.
I had a game called FireFox F7...it was amazing...even if it was heavy...
Wow what a game
Mine was the old orange double screen Donkey Kong.
Still got it too!
Katie Wisniewski in the late 70's
Also kissed her that night (as well as her sister Amy )
It was either Merlin or a small LCD game called Fire where you had to bounce little stick men dropping from a burning building into an ambulance.
My first console was an original Atari 2600. My mother bought one for my brother and I before they were even advertised. Our first game on it .... Space Invaders!
Mine was Donkey Kong Jr. The double screen fold out. Later on I got Iron Sword. But My favorite ever, was the Super Mario Bros. 3 game watch. I still have it and wear it on especially nerdy occasions, though it will drain a battery in a day and a half now.
