Game startup Smith & Tinker launches Nanoscopes

Bellevue game startup Smith & Tinker is launching its handheld game player this week, giving 7 to 12 year-old boys something to add to their Christmas wish lists.

The $50 Nanoscopes appearing in stores now are used to play the company’s Nanovor science fiction trading game offline, in solo games or battling with friends who magnetically link their Nanoscopes to play. The players have two ways to play solo, plus four arcade-style mini-games, the company said.

Smith & Tinker’s also selling “solo battle” game cartridges for $7.99.
