English term or phrase: handheld game
Definition from What Games Are:
Handheld game is a loose term to describe any game played on a dedicated portable gaming device, such as the Nintendo 3DS or the Sony PS Vita. This is distinct from mobile games, which are played on devices like the iPhone. Handheld games are thought to be a doomed category by many industry insiders because of their price compared to mobile games.

Example sentence(s):
  • The best handheld game consoles come with buttons, a solid battery life, and, of course, great games. What To Pack
  • Nintendo has dominated the handheld game for decades now. Its new Switch Lite is just the latest in a staggeringly long line of super-successful handheld consoles. Esquire
  • Another great benefit when it comes to handheld games is that they don’t take up a lot of space in your bag or your packet. Most handheld consoles just a little bigger than the size of a phone, making them incredibly easy to carry around with you where ever you go. The Xbox Club
