Tigervision, a division of Tiger Toys, took a stab at the Atari 2600
market for a short time. Before entering the software publishing
business, Tigervision was an established producer of handheld
videogames and already an established producer of hand-held videogames
by that time, their games are favorites among collectors because of
their flashy artwork in their packaging and the high quality of their glossy
Tigervision's game library was comprised mainly of virtually-unknown
coin-op and semi-popular computer game licenses (with the exception
of Miner 2049er, which was a monster hit on all systems).
River Patrol, Espial and Polaris
are about as obscure as you can get when it comes to arcade games.
Following its 2600 days, Tiger continued to pump out handheld
games (usually based on major licenses), and even released a handheld
game system called the R-Zone in 1991. And in 1997, they
brought out a Gameboy competitor called the Game.com which
was, to put it mildly, a mediocre performer in the marketplace at best.
Tiger is now wholly owned by Hasbro International and has recently used
the Atari licenses to bring out LCD and keychain games based on Atari
classics such as Breakout and Centipede.
