Hello everyone,

I'm looking for something specific, maybe some of you can help please ?
It's an old LCD handheld device that I had in the early 90s, say 1993 or so.

It looked like an original Gameboy, gray with pink buttons, but had no slot and no d-pad.
Does anybody remember something like that ?

The built-in game was simple, blocky, some sort of pong, snake or maybe breakout.
It also was thinner than the real Gameboy. But not as cheap as modern LCD games.

Graphics were not like those of th0se cheap Tetris handhelds from the 2000s.
If the device was switched of, the screen was cleared (no background pictures etc).

Anyway, I believe it had no pixel-addressable graphics,
but rather some blocks/symbols that were activated trough some sort of ancient microcontroller.

Thanks in advance,
Jo22

Thank you for your help!

The left Watara handheld looked a bit like it, but the handheld what I'm looking for looked like a DMG-01 (same color scheme),
just more flat and without d-pad. It perhaps had pink buttons on the left side, though, where the d-pad would be located.
