Electronic Plastic

A very good book on electronic games with loads of pictures of early games all done very stylishly. Still available.

 Electronic Handheld games

Electronic Handheld games come in all sorts of sizes and shapes. This is one of their defining features, in order to make up for the simple games they compensated by having them housed in extravagent cases. Some handheld games are more suited to sitting on a tabletop or the floor.

Astrowars
UK maker of loads of early electronic games such as Astrowars. Their mini arcade includes classics such as:

Invaders from space
Star Force
Firefox
Scramble
UFO Master Blaster
With some of the coolest case designs ever made Bambino games have to be a collectors favourite. They made a total of 11 games from around 1979-1980. Also notable for being one of the first manufacturers to use VFD displays where sprites were made from shaped coloured bulbs (Vacuum Fluorescent Display)
Nintendo Game and Watches are now quite collectable. Some of the first outings for characters such as Mario and Donkey Kong were on Game and Watches.
Blip
Tomy
