    That is a pippin. There are actually two versions, one with apple branding and another without. You can find them on ebay sometimes, but i dont know how many games where ever made for it.

    The pippin was introduced in 1996 and used a modified version of mac os. It used a powerpc 603e chip and was intented to expand apples market share by providing a low cost computing platform that could allow users to access the web and use it as a game console. It was basically the first attempt at an internet appliance. Apple designed it and licensed the tech to bandai to produce them.

    Don't waste your time with it unless you want to add it to a collection of some old Apple stuff. (The only reason I would ever want to buy a Pippin).
