Looks like some sort of Transformers or Gobots type game. Main sprite looks really familiar but I can't put my finger on the game.

Fair enough! :P Maybe it was a little too hard.
This hint should give it away, its for the Watara/Quickshot Supervision Handheld!

Well apparently it's Magincross.

And reading up on the Supervision I was surprised at the quality of the games available. From the screenshots alone it seems to be at least the equal of the Gameboy.

Do you have one Cauterize, how do the games play?

That would be the one! :) We have a Winner! (Thank you google! ;))

Ive got a Supervision with two games but unfortunately its broken.
The handhled itself is on my list to buy/replace sometime soon, so ill let you know then ;)

The games seem alright from what ive seen and the handheld itself has a nice chunky retro feel to it. But inevitably overshadowed by the GB :(

Looks like a purple Thunderbird 2...

I have a Supervision, there's a great little Bomberman clone called Kabi Island, and a couple of good Tetris and Breakout clones, but I can't figure out what I'm supposed to do in the rest of the games :?

Well done.

A really great game. Well, I thought so anyway.

I've never actually played it myself- only saw the review on Hardcore Gaming 101- certainly looks interesting!

Anyway, here's my go:
