    A cheapo LCD game I found at Family Dollar for $5. Features swappable screens.

    This thing has real bright lights installed, glowing through a big clear plastic chunk for a backlight.

    As you can see, these lights installed in the unit are blinding. Pic taken without flash.

    a basic fighting game, a submarine shooter, soccer, basketball, and 2 racing games I saw. These are the same cheapo LCD games you see at Wal-Mart and have existed since the 80s. $5 gets you the unit and 2 of the game screens.

    Seems like an extreme waste of $5.

    And replacing the screen doesn't actually replace the game, just the screen, so only one of the games actually works. The other is just the screen flashing random things while it gets input for the other game.

    The ROM chip inside the unit has all 6 games on it. Changing screens unlocks whatever game is associated with it.
