Hey, 80s babies! Have fond memories of portable gaming in the days before Game Boy? Did your parents ever buy you those Tiger electronic handhelds for $10 a pop to shut you up on those long drives? Or were you born just a little too late and missed out on the LCD gaming boom?

Polish graphic design team Hipopotam Studio has set up an interactive museum where you can play accurate recreations of those old-school delights. The site currently has 26 LCD units on display, from Game & Watch classics like Donkey Kong and Octopus to some rather obscure titles from Russia and Taiwan. Each is fully playable via keyboard, so you can once again experience the magic of limited animation frames atop a static background.

As I've said in the past, these devices have not aged well. Like, at all. But if you've got a free block of time today, there are much worse ways to kill a few minutes.

How does 900 classic arcade games in your browser sound?

Fancy the greatest classic gaming selection of all time? It's not at some fabled arcade where the sound of dropping quarters and eight-bit music drowns out the dimmed oldies rock station playing over the worn out speakers. No...more
