Time To Play The Game

LCD Wrist Games
Tiger Electronics (1990)
Just about every nerdy kid in school had a video game watch in the early 90's, and every teacher hated them.  Looking back on it, I can see why it would be annoying to have one of your students staring down at his or her wrist and pressing buttons that make screeching beep noises, but they sure were a welcome distraction.

This ad from the back of a comic book was shared by Terrible2z on Flickr.  It shows the screens for seven different Tiger LCD Wrist Games that were available in 1990, including Batman, Double Dragon, Altered Beast, Robocop, WWF Superstars, Ninja Gaiden and Castlevania II: Simon's Quest.
