Cool (and extremely rare) Game-and-Watch sized handheld game that uses
a VFD display instead of LCD, I'm guessing this game is called 'Lightning Strike,'
the blue Japanese characters translate to 'Lightning converging' literally, so that's
the closest I could come up with. It's a little bit bigger (and definitely thicker)
than the average 'Game-and-Watch' sized LCD pocket handheld. It has a great multi-color
display that features two different scenes. The 1st has you driving a vehicle along a road
while trying to avoid having missiles dropped on your car. The second scene
has you out of your vehicle in a city, trying to defeat bad guys that are shooting
at you. Each stage just seemed to be timed, if you survive long enough,
you win, and then it starts over a little faster.
Based on the Machine Man TV series in Japan.
