Game Master (partially lost video games on Hartung handheld console; 1990)
The Game Master was a handheld game console released in the 1990s by the company Hartung. It was made to compete with Nintendo's Gameboy and Sega's Game Gear, Watara's Supervision, and Bit Corp's Gamate. It was released in Germany by Hartung themselves, and released in the United Kingdom by a company known as Systema under the name "Systema 2000." Several different models were released in France by 2 different manufacturers Videojet and Delplay. Along with different models, the game boxes were also very different in different countries. Despite the name, it has no connections to the mythical Action Game Master by Active Enterprises.
Only 17 games are known to exist and only 1 remains unpreserved, due to either rarity or not actually being released to the public. On July 17th, 2020, a Twitter user uploaded screenshots of Tank War and Space Invader and were dumped and uploaded to the web archive.
