    Unhappy Supervision: handheld of the less fortunate

    "Many years ago, a beautiful country lost all the money suddenly. It could be the poisonous spider's doing."

    Holy Sssnake, it's finally here! The website that nobody demanded!

    Supervision: handheld of the less fortunate
    www.diskman.com/presents/supervision

    If you're familiar with the Supervision, you're probably laughing right now.
    If you're not familiar with the Supervision... oh boy, are you in for disappointment.

    This website is the result of 15 years [!] of research and collecting, and today (Oct. 4th, 2018) is its world debut.

    I'm sorry.

    There's also lots of other nifty, geeky, classic gaming stuffs on the main site, which you may enjoy a lot more than this Supervision nonsense...

    I've had a fascination with the Supervision for a long time after seeing it briefly in catalogs in the early '90s. I think I might have seen one in actual, genuine, not-at-all-a-fever-dream life back in said '90s. I have since bought three "games" for it, but haven't found a console to use them on. I also have an emulator for the Mac called OpenEmu, and they've been promising a Supervision emulation core for a couple years now, with no results. I just can't bear to pay a ridiculous amount online for the thing knowing I won't get any real use out of it, so I've been hoping emulation would show me what I'm missing. Not much, according to reviewers on YouTube.

    It looks like the same people cranked out most of the games for the system. I know Chimera was programmed in England, though. There was a bit about it in Retro Gamer Magazine. The game started out life on an 8-bit home computer, and many years later the programmer was contacted and asked to port it to the Supervision. I don't remember which magazine issue that was in, although it was probably about a year ago I read that. Maybe you can track down the article, get his info, and contact him for an interview about the game. Maybe get some 'behind the scenes' info about Supervision in the process.

    I remember seeing an article or two about the Supervision in "Boy's Life" magazine back in my Cub Scout days. They touted its larger screen and other 'advantages' over the Game Boy. I was mildly intrigued, but never actually saw it for sale at any of the local stores. I wonder why..........

    It's an interesting system but there's little demand for it. I'm basically stuck with the two boxed games I found earlier.

    I have a system in my collection (the one with the bendable neck), but it has never worked. I need to fix it. I have no power adapter, but have put batteries into it.
