1992 - 4th generation system
The Watara Supervision is a handheld game console developed and produced by the Watara company in 1992. It was also known as the QuickShot Supervision, as Watara had a licensing agreement with QuickShot to use their name and branding for the console in some regions. The Watara Supervision uses a monochrome LCD screen, and it is powered by a single AAA battery. The console features a built-in speaker and a volume control. It also has a built-in calendar and clock function, which can be used to set alarms. The console is quite small and portable, measuring just 13.5 x 7.5 x 2 cm and weighing around 120g. The Watara Supervision has a library of around 60 games, all of which were developed and published by Watara. Some of the notable games include: "Mario Bros." - a port of the classic arcade game. "Bubble Bobble" - a port of the classic arcade game. "Chess" - A simple chess game. "Puzzle Bobble" - a port of the classic arcade game. "Tetris" - a port of the classic puzzle game. The Watara Supervision was not as popular as other handheld game consoles of its time, such as the Nintendo Game Boy and Sega Game Gear. It was primarily sold in Asia and Europe and it was not widely available in North America. The console was discontinued in 1997 due to the increasing popularity of color-screen handheld consoles and the decline of the monochrome handheld market.
