Clown Handheld Electronic Game

(Cresta - 1982)

Clown Game - Front
This fun little LCD Clown game is set up pretty well and and fits easily in your hands. The joystick is easily manipulated by your right thumb and is responsive and auto centers quickly. Your left thumb operates the mode and start buttons. Even though the LCD screen is a little small and wiped out easily by bright ambient light, it is still big enough to show the breathtaking circus action.
The game has a built in clock to mimic the popular Nintendo Game & Watch handhelds of the time. You have to reset the clock when you replace the battery.
Clown Game - Back
The battery compartment is on the back side of the unit and holds one LR-44 button battery. The claim is that the batteries will last "months" between changes, but I have yet to have one last more than a month. So it is a good idea to take the battery out if you do not plan on playing the game for a while.
