Handheld Museum December 2003 updates.
12/29/03- Just a quick note to let everyone know I'm still here. I suffered a hard drive crash just after Thanksgiving, and pretty much temporarily lost everything I was going to add to the site. Data recovery will hopefully be returning all of that info to me just after the new year. In the mean time, I did add one game: A newly re-discovered Rosy game called Space King. Interestingly enough, this game fills a gap in the model number sequence, so it makes it kind of a cool discovery.
GAMES ADDED: Rosy- Space King.

Handheld Museum October 2003 updates.
10/23/03- Well, it's been 4 months since an update, so I figured it was time... I have some cool stuff to share, so check back over the next couple of days as I get prepaired and posted to the site. I'm going to be re-thinking the design of the site a little, I guess the bright colors are hard to read on CRT monitors (I view the site on an LCD monitor, and it's nice and clear on that...) :) So I may have a few 'alternate' versions of pages soon to see what people think...

06/05/03- New updates, something really special: I have been contacted by the designer of Castle Toy Kingpin (my favorite little handheld pinball game), and he sent me pictures of one of the original handmade prototypes of the game. Check out the Kingpin page for more details! I have also been in contact with someone that did an interview with the designer of Parker Bros Merlin and Wildfire Pinball, and photos of early handmade prototypes of these two games have also been added. (Check out Merlin and Wildfire for more!) And I have updated a lot of the information in the Mattel category.
