MC Hammer the Tiger LCD Game

MC Hammer LCD Game

MC Hammer Tiger LCD Game

M.C. Hammer was hot from the late 1980s until the mid 1990s. Performing hit songs like " U Can't Touch This " and even a Saturday morning cartoon called Hammer Man. During the peak of his fame in 1991 Hammer even got his own Tiger LCD Handheld game. A blog post or two pop up around the internet regarding this game when a copy goes up on ebay. Last one that I can see listed on ebay was a new in box copy that had a starting bid at $129.00. The auction ended without getting a bids.

I would love to hear what the " Rap Beat " talked about in the manual sounds like. Sadly I'm not seeing any videos for the game around.

PDF of the manual is on toy maker Harsbos website. Here.

    Selling one new unopened on eBay item number 190575485877

    My description

    Since this game is new in the package unopened we could not touch this, so to speak.

    However if YOU win the bid for this vintage piece of Video Game history

    YOU CAN TOUCH THIS OH YA! HAMMER TIME, Break it down!

    I read several sites online where people wanted to add this quirky vintage game to their collection since it is so rare. I think this game answers the age old question we all have about whether marketing and game designer people ever did recreational drugs.

    This one is rare because its not star wars, no this is you pushing buttons, and making M.C. Hammer dance. Yes, that’s the game, the whole idea for the game. It’s nothing more than that. No laser beams, no death star, no rescue the princess. Do you see why it might be kinda rare? Those of you who have known the love of a “actual” women probably do know why.

    Jedi mind tricks were not necessary to dissuade you from buying this when you saw this game in the year 19 blah blah on the shelf.

    “this is not the game your looking for, you can go about your business, move along” – not necessary…

    The sheer social horror of even someone thinking you owned or endorsed it in even the slightest way would repel you from even gazing at the package where someone might see you.

    Yes, it’s that kind of rare.

    We are talking “Richard Simmons (Google it) signed limited pant suit collection” kind of rare.

    Were talking the complete unabridged “how to raise children” course by Micheal Jackson kind of rare or possibly the “how to live the abstinence lifestyle journal” by Madonna kind of rare. Very, very rare. Bigfoot has been sighted more than this game. -a scientific fact!

    Just having this “hammer” game unseen in your back pack in middle school could inexplicably draw out more bullies to beat you up than a shredded live cow dumped in the Caribbean could draw hungry sharks.

    Just thinking about owning this game in it’s heyday could force you out of the mating population for years -no joke.

    It was social kryptonite.

    This game now however is so kitschy, so outrageous that to own it would make you vibrate with coolness because you own something so utterly uncool.

    Its not the kind of cool you can measure with a “Geiger counter” or a “straw poll” but trust me its there and just as real as your pinky toe.

    Like your pinky toe this pride of ownership will go with you wherever you go. The unseen waves would rush out of your inner being.
    It could make you a better person. Face it -It couldn’t hurt.

    I am anxious to get this auction on so I added pictures I found on the web to this auction. My hopes is that some of the fan boy bloggers will see the pictures grabbed from their website through some sort of web nerd magic and see that I have a real game for sale.

    I read where one of these was listed for $150.00 but all I am asking is to start mine out for $20.00 That should pay for the time and trouble I took in finding this game at a obscure garage sale way out in the country. My “garage sailing” (pun intended) ginormous truck gets 9 miles to the gallon so somebody should pay me a little something for finding this hall of shame game and bringing it to the light of day.

    This game is new in the package. It has the instruction book if there is one in there – (I dare not open its clear plastic sarcophagus to check) and looks like it was pulled from the store shelf this very day.

    It has never been opened so I can’t say it works but I would be very surprised if it didn’t since it has been sealed since Mr Hammers glory days. If it still retains even a slight amount of the energy that hammer demonstrated back “in the day” it alone could very well end the energy crisis and our dependance on foreign oil.

    It currently has a crossed out $18.86 Walmart price sticker on it and two other yellow mark down stickers with the last being $7.00.

    I think the 7$ mark down sticker was their “desperation” move to move this game out of the store. They were hoping some blind parachute pants wearing rapper would have at least $7 bucks down in those pants somewhere. I guess he never showed. His loss could be your gain to own this piece of video game shame history!

    When you receive this unopened game and you decide you don’t like it in any way please just return it unopened and I will give you back your purchase price and your reasonable shipping costs. Having the game unopened is part of it’s value as a collectable. If you want make sure it keeps it’s value then follow Mc hammers advice and tell yourself “you can’t touch this”. If you do open the package and “touch this” then its yours for keeps. That’s the deal.

    Here are some of the quotes about this game I found on various websites.

    “I’m currently trying to find the MC Hammer: U Can’t Touch This handheld by Tiger. They actually made an MC Hammer video game! What could possibly have possessed them to do that”

    Here is another ( http://www.1up.com/do/blogEntry?bId=9023776 )

    “You know, I really should be more attentive with my eBay auctions. I missed out on an MC Hammer LCD game by Tiger Electronics, a gadget so obscure that not even Handheld Museum has any knowledge of its existence. How would a game based on the briefly popular and currently bankrupt rapper play? Hell if I know, and this image taken from the auction raises more questions than it answers.

    Note the eight buttons, with four assigned to Hammer’s arms and another four controlling his legs. Individual buttons are labeled with such fanciful commands as “splits” and “footwork.” This is the first and likely the last video game that will ever have “footwork” buttons. (On a semi-related note, I’d imagine that a P.M. Dawn game would have “Spandau Ballet sample,” “existentialist pondering,” and “rejoinder to gangsta rappers” buttons.)

    The average gamer in this post-Dance Dance Revolution world would naturally assume that this would be a rhythm game, with the player forced to tap buttons in time with the music. However, keep in mind that this was released in 1991, in the twilight of Hammer’s career and six years before the Bemani series made its debut. Tiger handhelds were typically limited to simple one-channel sound and rarely innovative enough to pioneer a genre of video games, so I’m just going to assume that there wasn’t much more to this game than mashing buttons to make the onscreen Hammer jump, shimmy, and occasionally run from the tax collector.

    If anyone ever finds one of these in the wild and would be willing to sell it for a reasonable price, let me know! I’d love the chance to ravage review it in a future installment of Micro-Retro.”

    I am selling it for a reasonable price! Wake the kids tell your neighbors etc, You are not likely to find another like it for sale anytime soon. There is likely not a high enough volume of drugs streaming in from all other countries to influence any executives at any authority level to authorize any thing remotely like this to ever see the light of day again.
