StealthRUSH's Top 100 Favorite Game Gear Games
Sega Game Gear came out in the U.S. in 1991. Work originally began on the console in 1989 under the codename "Project Mercury", following Sega's policy at the time of codenaming their systems after planets. Like the Sega Master System, it was an 8-bit system. It was only the third commercially available color handheld console, after the Atari Lynx and the TurboExpress. .It could run on 6-AA batteries or an AC adapter could be used to plug the GG into the wall or outlet. It came packaged with Columns a " Tetris type" game, in which you have to match the colored blocks as opposed to making lines.
Honorable Mention: Galaga '91, Chase H.Q, Fantasy Zone Gear, Castle of Illusion starring Mickey Mouse.
