    I am trying to to remember the name of an early 90's I am gonna say device that was like a Game Boy. The gimmick behind it was that you could scan any bar code (say off a cereal box or something)and it played a game.

    OR maybe I am mixing it up with some sort of hand held fighting game where you scanned bar codes and got like fighters for some sort of Street Fighter game knock off.

    Any ideas?

          Yeah, I think Casey Jones got it. We had a thread a few years back with someone asking the name of this game.
