Grandstand Invader From Space - Hand Held Game

Post by Icky »

So next on my trip down hand held electronic game memories I purchased the Grandstand Invader From Space, I was not lucky enough to get the more expensive Grandstand Astrowars. However this was a good second. Again boxed with instructions, although the only thing not working is the sound so I need to dive in an figure out why its broken. @rubber_jonnie, was this the one you mentioned the other day?

Yes, I remember that one well!

Looking at Astrowars, the one I'm thinking of is very similar, but narrower. Will have to try and find a pic.

This could well be parental sabotage @Higgy
