Anyone else have this handheld?

I remember loving this console back in the day, before I got a GBA.

Bio Motor Unitron kicked ass.

I loved the feel of the d-pad/stick/thing on the NGPC, found GBA's controls kinda disappointing after that.

Unitron was great, I was more of a Faselei! fan though.  They don't seem to have a page here for that yet :(

never played that one...kinda hard to find ngpc games now lol...

make the page, I've already posted like 4 games for it that weren't here lol

I've still got mine!

I only had Sonic Pocket Adventures for it though,but It was a great little hand held. The only thing that bugged me about it was the memory battery thing. I remember my parents getting so Pissed when I needed like 4 of those batteries for my Neo Geo and Dreamcast memory cards all the time haha

Yep, I only owned like 3 games for it though, but I still had a blast with that system.

I'm amazed at the incredibly low amount of responses.  I bought one of these about a year after it came out and a boatload of games for it.  It's still running on the original pair of industrial grade AA batteries I put in it.  This thing saved my sanity on a plane trip to London.

Nope I had one of these, other then bad battery life it was o.k.

I've got my rommates here, though the only games I've got for it are Sonic and Metal Slug. It's OK, but Gameboy Color was better.

This thing kicks the GBC's ass. If it had a longer life-span, even more amazing games could have been on it. So far, I've been building my collection and every game I've played has been great. SNK vs. Capcom: Match of the Millennium is probably my favorite fighting game ever.

This system was great. I  was only able to buy two games before it disappeared off of store shelves. I played the shit out of Baseball Stars and Sonic.  I loved the d-pad/joystick and always though this was how nintendo should have made it. My next handheld was the gameboy advance which had great games but I always thought the Neo Geo had better hardware.
