    Hi,

    I went to the history of gaming show last month (what a show that was) and came across a game I had when I was younger. It was a handheld space invaders game. It was while with a round black screen and a silver joystick. The gameplay was soooo addictive. Any ideas on where I could pick one of these up ?

    ta,

    monkey

    sounds like Grandstands "invader from space"

    or if you bought it overseas it was made by epoch.
