Pocketeer Links and Credits

First, a big thanks to Ian Pleasance who's original page on Pocket Games inspired me to make these Pocketeer pages. 

More gratitude is extended to Jules Burt, an avid collector of all sorts of stuff and the owner of "Purple Haze Comics and Records" in Plymouth - a collectables shop.  Jules came across a large batch of UK TOMY pocket games in April 1999 which contributed much to our knowledge of UK games post-Pocketeer era.  He used to maintain a Classic Video Games Collection website but this no longer exists.

The complete list of games was made possible only because of a generous benefactor at Tomy. I am enormously grateful for this - without it, I'm not sure I would have ever figured out the final list of designs.

The Rev. Stuart Campbell has put together his perspective on pocket games.
