Somewhere around here I have a Pac-Junior keychain and a Space Invaders
keychain that doesn't have the two screens. The one with two screens is
kinda roundish.. mine is square. Mine also says Space Invaders on the front
of the game, the round one I've seen doesn't. I think I might still have a
Crazy Climber keychain also.

Entex Space Invaders handheld game was sooooooooo good. I used to have that
and still have Defender here, but the battery terminals need cleaning.
Otherwise it works fine. If you ever see any Epoch handheld games.. check
out Dracula.. it was a very good game. It was more like the coleco table top
