View the Ad Flyer
Hardly a handheld game, but an amazing home system that most people have never heard of. Consisting of a level 3 laserdisc player and an attached computer control system, the Halcyon system (named primarily becuase the first syllable of the word is Hal, the name of the computer in 2001: A Space Odyssey) was released by RDI, the company that created the Dragon's Lair, Space Ace and Thayer's Quest laserdisc arcade games. It originally cost $2500 and came bundled with the only home version of Thayer's Quest ever made on an actual laserdisc. I believe RDI went bankrupt shortly after releasing this in Jan 1985, so there probably aren't many out there... But I want one! Here's some more info about the planned games and the 2 that were actually released from The Dragon's Lair Project website (www.dragons-lair-project.com): Halcyon System.
Do I have this? No.
