It was only £2 and looks factory sealed.

Scared to open it...

It says game system for your VCR so I hope you still have a video machine, lol, we got rid of ours years ago.
I think my brother had something like this, with a little gun you use to shoot at the baddies on the tv.

"The first real action game system " must have been made in 1977 then.

"Game system for your VCR"... does that not say it all?

Shoot down fighter jets with a handgun? Looks awesome..
I do miss light gun games... :-(

It's the sequel to "Action Albert"...
