    "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...

    Nice. I remember lending it from a friend. Hero Hawk's a great game.

    Very good site. I like the consistent layout for each game page.
    Do you want photos of the GB-2000 dismantled? I was thinking of taking mine apart for cleaning.

    Pretty cool, and I like the rest of the site too, very obscure.

    Excelent site. Really enjoyed taking a look at it. All you need to finish it off are a few gameplay videos.

    Great to see a site dedicated to such an obscure hand held. I owned one as a kid and actually really enjoyed it despite being laughed at by my mates.

    Good work on the site, very informative and insightful.

    Thanks

    Out of all the Supervision models, I think the 9205 looks the best

    Nice site, I love the "retro" stiling. Maybe in the future you can add images of the internal of supervisions, TV link and the cartridges.

    It had some distribution in Italy. On Ebay.it you can still find some NOS games and photos of official accessories (power supply, car adapter and a bag).

    Thanks for your feedback y'all. I'm glad people are enjoying the site & finding it useful.

    From an aesthetic standpoint I prefer the GB-2000. I do not care for its take on the d-pad though.

    Thanks, I like to give each of my websites a unique flair. The goal is for the code to be simple and light, and for the design to be pleasant and consistent. And I still remember the dark days of dial-up, so I like to challenge myself to design quick loading websites, graphics included: even if that benefit is only truly helpful to a scant view visitors.

    I am considering adding photos of the system internals.
