After catching the latest (July) RetroGamingRoundup show, and thoroughly enjoying their top ten tabletop electronic games feature, I remembered an old friend tucked away that I haven’t used for a while.
This is my CGL Galaxy Invaders 1000, a Christmas present I received in the 1980’s and has been with me ever since. It’s not been used for a while and the battery terminals aren’t looking their best anymore. I inserting new batteries (I forgot how many these things need!) and as expected, it didn’t work. I keep meaning to get one of those multiple voltage adaptors but until then, I’ve had a go at a quick fix and replaced the rusted terminals with those taken from an old battery operated radio.
Mission accomplished. Wow, this really does take me back a few years. Pew pew pew!
