That listing has crappy pictures, but another one that was more with better pictures was the same background screen. There was yet another with a red case called 'super arcade pinball' that was the same screen again.

Definitely not the same game. The smaller Tiger handhelds also have a much smaller... I don't want to call it a screen... Play areas? Displays?

Might still be a fun distraction.

Ah crap, I must have too many windows open and confused myself. Oh well, what I get for doing 5 things at the same time. *shrug*

Not LCD, but good one from Radio Shack -

The Fire Away series of games. I played the red one on the right. These were licensed from Japanese companies and slapped with the Tandy name. These had the VFD screens.

Another cool one from Radio Shack, this was Skyduel 3D. You looked in the goggles to play. This was licensed from Tomy.

I got to play Nights into Dreams on an R-Zone last week. It was bad, but not as terrible as myriad reviews have claimed.

A friend of mine had the R-Zone headgear. What a disappointment that was. In retrospect I'm not sure how we thought it was going to be any good in the first place.

After re-reading the OP, I realize that I wasn't supposed to post any Tiger games. My bad.

Here's one from Bandai. I'm sure everyone remembers this.

That's vacuum fluorescent display, not liquid crystal. Like I mentioned I had a Pac Man one. I think they still count for the spirit of this thread though.
