Tandy Hold Up (1983, LCD, 2 LR-44's, Model# 60-2173)

This is an interesting piece (probably one of the first handheld games I ever owned, got when it came out). Radio Shack's first handheld LCD game, and probably shortest lived. The object of the game is that you are robbing a bank and while your partner is loading the cash into a bag, your job is to keep an eye on 3 tellers sitting behind the desk. When one of them makesa run for the alarm switch, you have to fire your gun at her to 'warn' her to get back to her seat. Of course, this type of game didn't go over well with parents, and was quickly discontinued. I believe they even offered refunds on the game if someone brought it back complaining about it. (Original price: $19.95) Manufactured by Bandai and sold in Japan as Bank Gang.

Do I have this? Yes, boxed.
