The Complete History and List of Tiger Electronics Handheld Games

History of the Tiger Electronics Ltd

Tiger Electronics was founded in 1978 by Randy Rissman, Gerald Rissman, and Arnold Rissman in Vernon Hills, Illinois. In its’ early days the company mostly made electronic items like phonographs. As the company grew it started branching out into electronic games and toys which is what the company is most known for. Tiger Electronics made their name with their extensive brand of LCD games that people either love or hate. Tiger Electronics had a lot of other successful products though including the 2-XL Robot, Brain Warp, Furby, Giga Pets, Lazer Tag,  Skip It, and the the Talkboy (made popular by the movie Home Alone).

After working with Hasbro for quite a few years, Tiger Electronics was eventually acquired by Hasbro in 1998 and is still a division of Hasbro to this day.


 

Tiger Electronics Handheld Games

Growing up as a child of the late 1980’s and 1990’s I remember the fad of the Tiger Electronics “video game” handhelds. I had several of them as a child and I loved playing them. As a video gamer who never had an original Game Boy I didn’t have much for options for portable gaming until I got a Game Boy Color so I had to settle for the Tiger handheld games. I didn’t really mind since I really enjoyed the games.

Like most things from your childhood though, Tiger Electronic handheld games are not nearly as enjoyable as you remember them. While I loved the games as a child it is really hard to play them for longer than a couple minutes at a time today. The games are pretty bad. The games get really repetitive and without the instructions it is really hard to even figure out what you are supposed to do in most of the games. You mostly just press buttons hoping to press the right buttons at the right times to “win”. The Angry Video Game Nerd’s look at the Tiger Electronic handheld games does a good job summarizing the many problems with the games (the video does have some strong adult language).

Most of Tiger Electronics’ handheld games utilized a LCD screen and a couple buttons. The games worked by having the different elements of the game printed on the game screen. Your character and the enemies would appear on the screen  when the game lighted up various sections of the screen. This meant that you only had a couple of options of what you could do at any given time. Basically you could move left, up, and right one space and then after a short period of time would return to the starting position. In addition to movement the games usually included a jump or attack button which you could use to attack enemies or avoid them. Most of the games had a couple different levels and the goal was to avoid/destroy enemies to successfully make it to the end of the level. This was easier said than done because you usually had no idea what you are supposed to be doing in the game and the controls are far from responsive. Basically if you got past the second or third level you were pretty good/lucky at the game.

Despite not usually being very good games, Tiger Electronics handheld games were still successful for two main reasons.

The main reason for their success is generally attributed to their price. Tiger’s handheld games were considerably cheaper than the Game Boy. Each game itself was cheaper and since each game was standalone you didn’t have to buy a system like the Game Boy to play the games. This was probably pretty attractive to cash strapped parents that wanted to buy a portable game for their children.

The other main reason for their success was the fact that Tiger was the master of utilizing franchises. Most major movie franchise and quite a few TV shows had their own LCD game. Tiger even got the handheld licenses to many video game brands like Castlevania, Double Dragon, Duke Nukem, Ninja Gaiden, Sonic, Street Fighter, and Virtua Fighter. It’s too bad Tiger didn’t put more work into actually making good games to go with all of the franchises they were able to license.

While Tiger Electronics handheld games weren’t that great, they will still hold a spot in my heart as I can still remember how much I loved them as a child.

Quiz Wiz

While most of Tiger Electronics games where standalone games, Tiger eventually started to branch off into cartridge based games which started with the Quiz Wiz line of games. The Quiz Wiz was a traditional trivia game that used different cartridges that contained trivia questions centered around specific topics. While I can’t find any information about how successful the Quiz Wiz line of games were, sixty different cartridges were released so the game had to have been somewhat successful. Here is a 1994 advertisement for Quiz Wiz.

R-Zone

Not being content with just creating individual LCD handhelds, Tiger Electronics decided to create their own handheld that would utilize game cartridges. In 1995 Tiger Electronics released the R-Zone. The R-Zone had three different versions produced with two being more traditional handheld devices while one version utilized a headgear piece and a controller. Not surprisingly the R-Zone flopped.

Other than the Quiz Wiz line of trivia games, the R-Zone was the first set of games made by Tiger Electronics that actually used game cartridges. R-Zone’s game cartridges weren’t your typical game cartridges though since they still utilized LCD screens which were placed into each individual game cartridge. For some reason Tiger Electronics just couldn’t get past their obsession with LCD game technology.

By using the same LCD technology, games for the R-Zone were no better than their traditional handheld games. The games could only use red and black and the images were displayed by lighting up different parts of the screen. The only main difference between the R-Zone and their more traditional handheld games is that the R-Zone used the same controller layout for all of the games. Here is a commercial for the R-Zone that illustrates how the system worked.

Game.com

Despite the failure of the R-Zone console, Tiger Electronics decided to try and create another handheld console. In 1997 they released the Game.com system. Learning from their failures from the R-Zone, the Game.com ditched the LCD game concept and focused on making more traditional video games like those that could be found on the Game Boy and Game Gear. Game.com for the most part tried to appeal more to older children and adults. The Game.com was basically a combination of a PDA and a game console.

While the Game.com is generally not considered to be a very good handheld console, it actually had a couple  things going for it. Once again Tiger was the king of licenses and was actually able to get their own versions of games like Duke Nukem and Sonic. The Game.com also deserves credit for being the first handheld console to utilize two things that have become staples in the handheld market today. The Game.com console was the first game console to use a touch screen which would later be popularized by the Nintendo DS. The Game.com was also the first handheld console that could connect to the internet. It had limited functionality though and it was a pain to get working apparently.

While it had some things going for it, just like the R-Zone the Game.com console was a failure. The console died around 2000 and apparently sold less than 300,000 copies. Like Tiger’s other games, the games for Game.com just weren’t very good. The Game.com had trouble dealing with fast moving games which lead to most of their fastest games like Sonic to suffer. Another issue is that Tiger had little to no support from third party developers so the games had to be developed in house. This meant only around 20 games were ever made for the system. The system also had issues with poor battery life and the screen was hard to see. It didn’t help that a year later Nintendo would come out with the Game Boy Color which supported color while the Game.com only supported black and white graphics.

Generally people credit the console’s failure to marketing. The advertising was ineffective and regularly would just insult gamers. Check out this advertisement for a demonstration on how bad the advertising truly was.

    Hi there. Awesome list! I’m trying to find someone who can make a custom handheld game in a similar vein to the YENO TIGER GALAXY. I’m guessing Tiger no longer does this stuff? In fact, does anybody still do this kind of retro handheld LCD game type manufacturing? Thanks!

      Hello.

      I don’t think Tiger Electronics still makes the LCD style games or they definitely are not as prevalent as they used to be. I still think there are companies that make LCD games but I don’t know of any off the top of my head.

    I have a Tiger Electronic Toys game not on the above list “Uncle Scrooge” 1984 (Walt Disney Productions)

    I was trying to find out the size of the battery I needed. It looks like an A76 or LR44 width, but is a little more shallow than those. Do you know by chance? Not sure if it takes 3 batteries or not, as two spots don’t seem to have contacts in them.

    Hasbro chat is in USA time and I am in Western Australia 🙁

    Thanks for you help

      Hello.

      I will add your game to the list of Tiger Electronic games.

      Unfortunately I am not going to be able to help you much on the battery question. In the US a majority of the Tiger Electronics games used AA batteries with the occasional game using other types of batteries. I am guessing that you already looked but a lot of the Tiger Electronics games had in small print on the back of the game the type of battery that the game used.

      Unfortunately I don’t have any other suggestions on how to figure out what batteries the game uses.

      LR43 (186) should work. You only need to populate the spots with contacts. Tiger made several of these type of games and depending on the game it takes 1-3 batteries

      Hello.

      I don’t believe Tiger Electronics has made LCD games for quite a few years. I am guessing that as portable game systems became more popular/cheaper there wasn’t much of a market left for them. As far as companies that still make LCD games, I have seen some made in recent years but they are usually pretty cheaply made and aren’t nearly as prevalent as they used to be. Unfortunately I can’t think of any of the company’s names off the top of my head.

      I am sorry that I couldn’t be of more help.

      After a little research it doesn’t appear to be for sale on Amazon and no one is currently selling it on eBay. I did find one that was for sale on Etsy that appears to have sold for around $25. That leads me to believe that the game is worth at least $25. Without any being currently for sale or having sold recently though it is kind of hard to give you an exact price.

    Great list! I noticed that one is missing though, I have a Tiger Electronics Wayne’s World handheld game. I’ve been trying to find more information about it but can’t find anything about it anywhere.

      Hello.

      Thanks for bringing up the Wayne’s World game. I have added it to the list. Unfortunately I am unable to help you with more information about the game since I don’t own it and I couldn’t find any information about it online either. I am sorry that I couldn’t be of more help.

      Eric

    Great work compiling all this! Man, those games really were terrible.
    One more to add to the list:

    Racing 1991 (similar to Football 1991 and Baseball 1991)

      Unfortunately I have no idea what the “ACL” letters stand for. I am guessing it is an technical abbreviation having to do with resetting the game as that is what the buttons are used for.
