Nintendo's Gameboy may have cornered the portable gaming market in the early nineties, but that didn't stop Tiger Electronics trying to nab a piece of the pie.

By combining a touchscreen with a huge unwieldy case and woefully underpowered hardware, they created the Game.com! Which is pronounced "Game com" as the dot is silent for some reason.

Several high-profile games were ported over to the Game.com, including Resident Evil and Duke Nukem. There's even a version of the fairly obscure Sega game Fighters Megamix. All of them ended up as semi-playable messes.

Excitingly, the Game.com ramps up the excitement of action games by using its unique hardware to add motion blur to moving graphics! Which is a lie advertisers may have come up with to try and gloss over the fact that the screen is almost useless.

An modem attachment was made to allow the Game.com to access the internet. It was text only. You can imagine how well that worked, particularly as the manual gave wrong instructions for setting it up...
