This is missing one that I used to own. It was gray and kind of similar, I think, to the ones that you had flip the screen but mine was significantly different in that the screen went inside the unit and would lock there until you had to pop it out again. It was a retail release, not some McDonald's throw-in, and the pop-screen mechanism was pretty flimsy and broke soon after I got it. Does anyone else recall this thing? I recall that this was part of a series of Sega LCD games. I think it was Christmas '93 or '94 that I got it.

Project:Playing Mass Effect 3 U, anyone up for some online?
Never seen this topic before but maybe I can assist with a query you lot had a while back.
Well, you were asking about who made the McDonalds LCD games? It just so happens I went out of my way to get the majority of those Happy Meal products when they were in distribution, and then I laminated (basically, I sellotaped around them- LOL) the little leaflets that came with every one (the leaflets that show the instructions and the rest of the collectibles to get). Maybe those say who developed them?
I'll dig them out this week and have a good gander.
Because that gave me one... I mean, I guess it sounds alright considering the limited hardware, but man, that LCD game... oi, I remember having it, and I don't know what I did with it. I also remember it not being that fun and it was roughly based on Chemical Plant Zone as well as elements from Oil Ocean, I seem to recall they used the Octopus enemy and then whatever Eggman did, I forget, I just remember the game being not too fun. I never understood the appeal of the LCD games honestly, but I guess as a kid it was a funner time. Pretty sure I got it at some garage sale when I was younger.
