The Casio Loopy

I doubt many people have even heard of this console let along played on one!

It was only released in Japan and was actually aimed at girls! The machine did not do very well and quickly disappeared from the market. I found this system review on You Tube:



There is also a bit more info on the Wikipedia page as well as a list of all the games released for it:

Iirc, Casio were the first company to sell a digital wrist watch with a built-in videogame. They made a range of such wrist watches too so they've some gaming heritage at least.

Wow! I had never seen any of those watch games. I do remember a kid at school had a Pac-Man game watch.

Those are really neat! I would guess durable as well. Casio always seemed to make well built products.

That is cool DZ-Jay! Myself and and a schoolmate used to bring our Coleco tabletops into school. The teachers even had fun with those. I brought Donkey Kong and he had Frogger. Frogger seemed to be the bigger hit.

Really nice looking games. Limiting it towards girls might have worked if it had been a Hello Kitty themed console.
