Tsukuda The Great Escape (19xx, VFD, 4 C Batteries, Model# ?)

One of two games with this design released in Japan by Tsukuda (The Dracula is the other one), it's basically a Pac Man clone with a few features. You are a thief trying to grab little bags of money and get out. I'm not sure if you have to get all the money, or just as much as you can (I can't read the instructions, they are in Japanese). You can also find a gun and then shot the guys that are coming after you (that helps a lot). It has a scrolling maze, you are pretty much in the middle all the time, and the maze moves around you (unless you approach an edge). Another interesting feature is that the game can pop out of part of it's casing to make it smaller (see pics). I'm not sure what the real purpose of this is, why not just make it small and leave it that way? (The Dracula is the same way). It shows a white frame in all the pics on the box, and that's the way it comes. I'm not aware of any variations on the frame color for this game. Released in Germany by Schmidt as Millionen Raub.

Do I have this? Yes, this is mine in the pictures.
