It is known world wide to be very RARE.... This one is in MINT condition.... Has the React Game Cartridge... And the light control box along with all paper work in the box. I put batteries in and the lights turn on but I do not see anything moving on the screen?
I do not dare open this one up and take a look... That is up to you. I want to keep this one as Mint as I got it. This is one for a true game collector.
Here is the story on this.. I grabbed this description online...... The Super Micro handheld video game system was released in 1983 by a small Silicon Valley company named Palmtex (games for the palm of your hand). It was one of the first cartridge based programmable handheld game systems ever available.You may have already heard that this is probably one of the worst video game systems ever created! Actually beautiful in its own way, a fun electronic oddity, and a notable participant in the mid 1980s gaming industry meltdown. The plastic is cheap while the screen, controls, display, software etc are all crazy buggy, and only 3 game cartridges were available. These systems were made with a confusing 3 piece sandwich design: base console (hinged clamshell), pin-connected cartridge in the middle, and the lightpak on top. When assembling and disassembling never force these 3 pieces into place, go slowly. First snap the cartridge into the lightpak clasps, then gently push the assembled lightpak-cartridge into the base console pins. The front of both lightpak and base have a sharper angle than the rear, being aware of this asymmetry will help ensure you are assembling the orientation correctly, you may have to disassemble and try again if you get the angle orientation backwards. The cartridge pinouts at least have a somewhat fool-proof design (1 end is rounded the other squared) but otherwise the front/rear orientation is not user friendly. When you seat the cartridge in the pins slots, make sure its nice and tight all around. The lightpak contains small light bulbs inside which are hardwired, these bulbs are usually burnt out from age. Our advice to you is do NOT use the light switch very often or the switch parts will soon break and fall inside.
We know from experience this is one of the many quirks. The lightpak is not required to use the console, this is merely an external lamp. Holding the console (with lightpak removed) near a lamp is an adequate light source. You can also adjust the screen brightness using a small dial on the bottom of unit.Caution when turning the brightness dial, dont force it, use sparingly. This is another design flaw that forcing these dials can break the screen visibility. If you turn the dial counter-clockwise it increases the screen brightness but don't turn it all the way up, dial it back some to get better contrast. When you gently squeeze the front and rear sides of base console at the same time it will open up as a hinged clamshell.
Do not ever force the base console open, do not ever use a tool to pry it open. By gently squeezing together the front and rear of base it will pop open reliably once you learn how.If you try using a tool to open this the brittle plastic will chip, crack, or get carved out by the tool. Important - never close the console battery cover while there are batteries inside! Once you do that, it is nearly impossible to open the battery cover door without damaging the plastic. Using your thumb the battery cover will slide open and closed easily enough when it is empty, but with the 4 AA batteries inside there is a design flaw causing the battery cover to become tightly sealed shut. If you attempt to pry or force the battery cover open using a tool, the brittle plastic will chip, crack, or get gouged out by the tool. To prevent damage to your Super Micro, this is rule number one. Still we warn you that its the crappiest most unreliable most flawed video game system ever designed. There has never been a more epic FAIL in video game hardware design. So bad yet amazing, we love the Super Micro System but feel obligated to warn you of the bitter reality.
