Introduction

I got my Gamegear for free together with my NGPC, the seller gave it to me, because it’s condition was (and still is) terrible and I was interested in it anyway.
The Gamegear is more or less a portable Mastersystem, internally it’s almost identical enabling developers to easely port Mastersystem titles to the Gamegear providing it with a pretty big games library and because of that it won the battle with Atari’s superior Lynx.

At the moment I have 2 Gamegears, one is crappy, bad screen and busted brightnessdial which has been replaced by a very bad POT meter by the previous owner. So that one is pretty much unusable whatsoever. And I have a good one which is working perferctly.
